Selling Your Stuff Can Clear More Than Physical Space

A friend of mine recently told me that he felt weighed down by the amount of belongings he had. If he wanted to move, the constant worry of “I don’t have room for this stuff” would always haunt him. After disposing of furniture, clothes and misc, he felt more free. Today, he can move anywhere he desires, not limited by physical space and concern.

I have found myself in a similar predicament. In just three weeks I will be moving out of my parents house to embark on the next chapter of my life, “my first job after college”. As I started thinking about this transition period, one of the first thoughts that came to mind, “what am I going to do with all my sh** when I move?”. Just then, a light bulb flashed!

One Mans Trash is Another Mans Treasure

My phone is the best resource. Apps like Letgo and Facebook Marketplace make it so easy to buy or sell anything; furniture, clothes, sports equipment, even jewelry. I have always used these apps to buy stuff, but with a collection of furniture adding up, I became a seller. In just two weeks, I have gotten rid of so many bulky items while making a profit in the process.

Moving Forward

A couple suitcases in the doorway. I feel of sense of freedom as I look around my room. All I have to my name is what I need; clothes, pictures, electronics and care products. No matter which direction I decide to go, I will never be held back by unnecessary belongings.
