I spent the weekend with eBay on location in Chicago. Initially, I became involved with eBay as a spokesperson for eBay Classifieds. As I’ve learned more about this terrific company, I’ve gained interest in finding ways to make eBay a useful tool for our clients. Most of our clients complain about having too much “stuff”. When we are working to weed out and pare down with someone, we find three categories of things to eliminate. It’s either garbage, donation or “I don’t use it, but it’s too good to get rid of”. So what about finding a way to sell it on eBay? I am exploring the option of having Chaos To Order be a source for our clients to sell unwanted items. There’s a lot to consider in doing this, and we are not officially doing it yet, but I would love any thoughts and ideas that you, our customers would have. You can comment on this blog post, email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (847) 825-8400.
- Find that pile that’s been bugging you, dig in to the hardest area when you’re motivated.
- Set the timer and work without distraction for the entire time you’ve allowed.
- Have a plan for what you donate. Having someone or some cause to donate your unwanted items to will make you more likely to pass them along.
- Don’t waste time moving things from one pile to the next. Put each item you plan to save in it’s proper place as you go.
- Earn some cash. Sell your stuff on eBay Classifieds. It’s an easy, local and safe way to turn your clutter into cash.
- Feel great at the end when you see how much progress you’ve made!
