There’s still more stuff I sold in those last months prior to moving. We’ll save those tales for another blog. I will say this for now. Of the many things I learned in this downsizing/moving process, the most important thing is this... GET STARTED EARLY! If you plan to downsize as we did, get into your closet, attic and basement right now and start selling the stuff! Our downsizing journey began over two years ago. Once the decision was made, we started the process with a plan to begin by selling the largest, bulkiest items in my house first. Furniture, outdoor items, bikes and other big things were the first to go. Although it was a lot of work, for me the whole process was actually fun. Every time I buyer walked away with something from our house, I thought to myself, “That’s one less thing I have to pay the movers to move!” In addition, all the money we’ve made from the sales will be reinvested in home improvements at our new house. It’s awesome to see the fruits of all those sales turned into tangible home improvement like new floor tile, landscaping, ect.
Now that it’s Spring, it’s only appropriate that MoneyintheGarage.Com is back with new garage sale flips and a few more downsizing flips too. This Dude is also back out hitting the yard sales and thrift shops. The process goes on...just from a new location.
How’s the flipping business going for you? Any examples of stuff you've sold during a house moving or downsizing experience? If so, add your story in the comment section below.
