Sidewalk Sale

When Nate and I first moved to DC, we decided to get rid of some clutter.

Moving really does that to you -- makes you want to get rid of all the clutter. I've counted, and in the past 5 years, I've moved 4 times. You really start to hate all your stuff after the second or third time. Like, why do I have so much junk? Where does it all keep coming from??

It's odd because I probably couldn't name 10% of what I own, but it's hard to get rid of things. I start to think: oh, I may need that later, and oh, this is of sentimental value, it can't go. Though, after a couple rounds of packing and unpacking, that gets easier.

Most of the things we decided to sell were kitchen supplies. Having lived apart and then in one place, we were combining two kitchens, so we kept the better-of-the-two spatulas and colanders and containers. It was actually a lot of fun chatting with people and bargaining. We even ended up with $60 (though I'm sure one guy was pricing some of my law books to sell on Amazon later)! Another guy almost bought our spice rack that still had some spices in it, since we were too lazy to clean the jars out. The rest of the (unsold) stuff we ended up donating to our favorite place: Goodwill.
