Too Much Inventory?

Too Much Inventory?

About two months ago I promised myself I would not go to the thrift stores anymore until I had sold and listed the majority of what I have.  Now remember I have one, okay two… okay okay three storage units full of CRAP.  My husband Jim asked if there was anyway I could get two cars in the garage, my convertible beetle and our new 2012 VW Beetle? I said sure… it was HARD! Weather had to cooperate, etc.   I realized during this venture I had way to much stuff and I decided then and there that I would not buy until I had the stuff in that garage listed.  (I will tackle the storage units later). I have been saying that for years.  I have decided that the way to help people is to show them that I have the same problem they do but I am tackling it .. one small step at a time.

My Crap

When I would buy stuff, I would just put it in the garage and get to it later.. Later became years.

No we are not having a garage sale.

Garage Totes

The bins really help.  I have a Dymo Label writer and I printed off labels to put on the bins so I know what is in each one.  I can pull a bin at a time and list from it.

Getting Close

Over the years as I got smarter in my purchases I had a lot of junk that was re donated back to Savers in town.  I have pretty much stayed away from Open Puzzles and most books (other than needlework)

We did it!

I have a similar problem, but mine is inventoried on a spreadsheet. Yet there is so much that will never be listed. As I tackle boxes, I will just HAVE to start redonating.
