I have more to list on eBay, and have found that now momentum has built I am not actually dreading it this time. Still not overly enthused, but the photos have been taken and I’m building myself up to start thinking about descriptions.
My findings from starting to declutter and sell my stuff once more, is no different to what I discover each time I do it.
I read a while back that the average UK household contains £600 worth of stuff that is no longer required and could easily be sold.
Now it’s very annoying when someone quotes a statistic like that and cannot find the source to back it up. Sorry but, I’m going to be one of those annoying people today. I have a good idea it was an article in one of the Hubby’s finance magazines, but can I find it? Alas no. A couple of years ago I would have presumed I’d hidden it away, my opinion this morning is that it’s been enthusiastically recycled (aka chucked)!
The reason this value sticks in my head (and thus I’m confident to quote it) is that lovefoodhatewaste.com also claim the average family throw away over £600 of food each year.
£600 saved by not wasting food + £600 generated from selling unwanted stuff = £1200
