So since so many people thought that yesterday’s post was going to be about a new kitten, here is a picture of my dad with a kitten purrito.
So the cleaning out my house has stalled a bit. I blame racing. Apparently, when you have races or 24 hours of cycling or even a ten mile training run and a 25 mile bike ride, the rest of life gets away from you. Let’s not talk about the dust. I’m still trying to teach the cats how to dust. What’s that fluffy tail for if not for wiping dust off of things?
But I thought I’d provide a quick update on my decluttering. On the advice of a friend, I sent a few clothing items to ThredUp, which is basically an online consignment store. They pay you for what you send in (shipping is free), then they resell. I sent in a dress and two pairs of pants and got $15. Not a ton of money, but I wasn’t wearing them, so hey, free $15! They resell for probably three times what they gave me, so it’s not a huge markup. I may check them out for adding items to my closet.
I also put my the bike saddle that came with my tri bike on eBay. There was no way I was ever going to use that thing, and it was apparently a good saddle (designed for male anatomy), and came out $25 ahead. Made a tiny dent in the new saddle I purchased. I could have listed it for more, but I just wanted to get rid of it.
Next up is dealing with the books I’ve sorted out. I think I’m going to donate them to the library’s book drive, but I need to go through the rest of the books first. I think those things multiply.
