Slowly organizing items.  Dismantled the captains bed in middle room to reassemble in the garage.  Didn't want people to have to come in house to look at the bed.  Had 4 people interested in the bed in the last 2 days.  One decided he wanted a larger one, another wanted  me to hold it for another 2 weeks.  Two others never got back to my reply.  This is such a long process.  I need to clean window sills and repaint.  With the bed out of the middle room I have room to organize the 12 gallon storage containers.  Didn't do much inside today.  I mowed the back lawn and did some weeding.

You never really realize how much stuff you have until you try to downsize.  I am listing things on Craigslist for about 1/2 the price you could get them at the store.   I have some things I have let go for 1/4 the new price.  I bought a filing cabinet at Staples for $169. and had to put it together.  I sold it for $40. and even then the guy tried to get me to lower the price cause there was a 2" scratch on one side.  I have had so many people get in touch with me and say they will give me "x" amount of  $ for an item and take it off my hands.  They say they can pick it up today for cash.  I just tell them "no thanks".  At this point I am not desperate.  Friday I canceled the house phone and brought the internet connection down one level.  That phone call was not easy cause the person on the phone tried talking me out of it.  He said he needed to "educate me" in that I would no longer save the $10. bundle discount.  Yes, but the house phone that I am not using was costing $27. a month.
