Took a brief detour on the relocation road

April 4th, 2007 at 06:54 pm

March pre-relocation sales were very lackluster ($72 for a few things on Craigslist and Half.com) and I am feeling too lazy to calculate interest right now, so I'll post sales results for March & April together. Selling stuff wasn't a priority this month.

I did do a huge paper purge of my business files. DH was a way for a couple weeks so it was a good time to do that. [We share one computer that is in my "office" and the inevitable mess that comes from sorting plus the shredder running is a big distraction for him, so it's better to do that while he's away.]

Also did some sorting and gathering of stuff for our big garage sale in May.

I'm also winnowing our possessions by not replacing things when they wear out or run out; instead, I'm making due with alternatives. [For example, when my long underwear got so full of holes that they no longer provided warmth, I started wearing pajama bottoms under my pants. Smile I figure I won't need long underwear in Texas!]

The biggest thing that happened was that we took a brief detour by making an offer on a house in our area that is in pre-foreclosure. We did not get the house, but we are keeping an eye on it and if it goes to foreclosure auction we may bid on it. Even tho' we are moving ahead with our plans to relocate, we are also keeping all of our options open. If a "nest were to fall from a tree" (in other words, if we were able to get a screaming deal on a preforeclosure in our area), we would take it.

    Congrats on getting all that paper cleared out - it can be a huge time-consuming job! I wore out one shredder clearing out my dear packrat F-I-L's papers.
