A Treasure Chest and a Gold Mine

I love Kijiji! This week alone, I've sold:

a doll house for $80 (the one I always wanted, and that Janelle loved for a while, but recognized when she had outgrown it and was ready to move on),

a pretty witch costume ($15) that Janelle wore last year and was my favourite she ever wore — but let's face it, she's not going to wear it again,

and a pile of Janelle's outgrown clothes, sold for a dollar a piece. I'd love to save them for my neice, but I'm pretty sure that they'll be way out of style before she's ready to wear them. I'm just glad that some little girl will wear them — and that they are not taking up space in my house anymore!

 It's a gold mine! Maybe this should be my new job. Lately I always seem to have cash in my pocket because I've sold something. Then again, I supposed I would eventually run out of things to sell. But if you've seen my house you know that would take a while!

This summer I found the china cabinet that I had been wanting for years. It already feels like it belongs in the corner of my living room, like it's just always been there. So I guess Kijiji is also a treasure chest!

A treasure chest and a gold mine. I think the bigwigs at Kijiji could use that! Maybe I have found a new job for myself!


  1. I too have a ton of things I should sell. But I never quite seem to get around to it. Usually, I end up getting fed up and just tossing. Not my most environmentally-friendly activity:)

    My sister-in-law once made a "living" on ebay. But eventually she ran out of stuff to sell. That and she was spending all the profit - I think it's an occupational hazard.

  2. I usually give my stuff away to Good will or The Diabetes association but maybe I should think about selling some!
