Decluttering Means eBay Listings

February 19th, 2017 at 03:00 pm

I've been decluttering lately at our home. If you stopped by, you might think I barely have anything compared to the average American, but yet there is still stuff we don't use. I have been showing a bag of decluttering on my blog Your Organized Friend for the last week and there is more to come.

The decluttering has produced several items worth trying to sell. I'm not sure that they all will sell, but if I could get some money for most of them I would be happy. I have three items in the $40-30 range, and two items listed in the $8-10 range. I have one more item I'm washing first and hope to list it later tonight for at least $40.

I also came upon a few movies that might be worth listing, but I will need to find appropriate packaging for them first.

In other news, we had my van in for repair late last week. I had a situation where I went to pick up my daughter from school and went to start the van again and it wouldn't turn over at all. I was able to start it an hour later without a jump start. The repair shop eventually recreated the issue. It was the alternator that was bad, which then caused the battery to go out prematurely. We did get a free replacement battery as it was still under warranty. With military discounts an alternator with a three year warranty and labor cost us $530. We do have the cash to pay it for which I am thankful. I also feel much better knowing that I won't have a problem starting my van again in the future!

    Glad you have the cash, but sorry you had to let it go!

    If you were able to start the van without a jump then the battery/alternator could not be the problem. Once a battery is dead it stays dead. I would get a better explanation from the repair shop.

    The battery wasn't dead. It had a full charge per the auto store. I wasn't in charge of the repair and didn't hear the direct explanation and or see the report from the repair shop, so I may not be explaining correctly. Thanks for your concern.

    Glad your vehicle is up and running again! Yay!

    Good job on decluttering and trying to sell stuff. We took a bunch of things to the resale shop we donate to this morning.
