I finally sold my grandmother's dining room chairs today. Six in all: $100. I've had them for about 15 years, since my grandmother died. They've been through lots of moves & lots of roommates. Six less things on my list of possessions.
I'm in the middle of getting rid of all of my stuff so that I can live life traveling. I've had a couple of yard sales, reducing my useless stuff quite a bit. But I still have some useful stuff, too. Some of it I've been passing on to friends, but I've been listing several of my "nicer" things on Craig's List, hoping to generate a little bit of travel cash. But the interest that I get from Craig's List is fleeting at best, so I'm glad that the chairs finally sold.
It's amazing how long it takes to "un-do" yourself & leave conventional living behind.
