I have lot of space in my computer. In fact, I need to sort out something and delete duplicates, but I'm not motivated to do it because I don't have the need to.

Last week I got rid of a GF I'd been dating for awhile that was costing me a lot of money. Does that count?

Only if she was taking up room that you'll need when you downsize!

One more text book sold today and my kids said it's ok to sell their VHS Disney collection. Hurray! Get rid of more stuff in exchange for money. What's not to like?

Yesterday I took a tub of purses (Spade, Kors, etc.) to Plato's Closet and they bought them. Downsizing continues.

I might want to sell my expensive handbag too. I was going to give it away.

We are moving so today dh took two carloads to the Goodwill. I can't believe the stuff we're finding in the basement and we've only been here 5 years. I think we brought them with us from the last place and they've never even been used.

How old are the textbooks and where are you selling them? I have a lot of computer books I'd like to sell if possible. But I'm not even sure they're worth putting on Amazon.

They were 4 years old, my kid just graduated. But they are brand new, never written on. But you can check for some of the prices online from Amazon. I put some of my gardening books online. Right now the price is a little high but next month, I should get the free shipping or $3.99 from Amazon and lower the price, hopefully I'll get rid of some of them.

Thanks! My computer books are pretty outdated. I've had a few books on Amazon for years, just have them tucked in a closet. Sold one last week and never even saw the email come through until I got the "mark your item shipped" email!

I'm sorting through my books now so I suppose once that's done I can double check prices.
