Okay. I don’t own a farm. Or any real estate for that matter. Not one square foot of out-of-this-world Vancouver property.
But, I’ve got a lot of possessions. Stuff I thought made good sense at the time of purchase. They go by the names of Coach, Prada, Mark Jacobs, Lancel, Jimmy Choo and more. Why I thought I needed expensive handbags and shoes is a mystery. These days, I see these articles as clutter. I want rid of them.
That’s why I’ve gone back to Ebay in a effort to sell some of it. At rock bottom prices. I’ve had some success on Ebay in the past. The Fluevogs I sold went in one day — record time (I should have priced them higher). Also sold some scuba gear. One purchase was to a guy in Norway.
Ebay sales profiles are a pain to create. You’ve got to figure out dimensions and weights. You’ve got to set up a Paypal account. You’ve got to take decent photos of the articles you’re selling. Then, you wait for a bite. Believe me, there are a lot of people selling shoes and handbags on Ebay.
What I don’t sell may end up in my will going to some of you. Then you can figure out how to get rid of it. Or to an organization that accepts donations of business attire and accessories for women looking for work. I’ve got half a dozen Holt Renfew-purchased Theory suits that no longer fit.
The project is called purging for retirement. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. Or lack thereof.
