Ohhhh ebay how I’ve missed you.
I used to be an ebay junkie. Buy it… sell it… more importantly SHOP IT! Well, I’m up to my old tricks… I’ve fallen off the wagon.
After my WONDERFUL two week vacation, I came back to Iowa ready to simplify. I realized I am drowning in “stuff”. Too many clothes, too many toys, too many things… just too much STUFF. So, I started rearranging furniture, cleaning out drawers, hauling clothes to the Goodwill, and sorting out stuff to sell on ebay. My general rule… if it’s worth more then $30 it’s worth listing on ebay. I only can list three or four things at a time because I’m not smart enough (or organized enough) to keep up with more than that. Who bought what, who’s paid, where to ship it. The problem is, I get on daily to check on my auctions, and then I CAN NOT HELP MY SELF…
It’s like an evil circle. I feel the need to sell STUFF, because I have too much STUFF, and then I buy more STUFF. What the heck? I just bought Cooper a couple of DVD’s that he doesn’t have, and I just bought a HUGE lot of clothes for Cooper in the next size (WAY cheap). Those were needed. My almost three year old is walking around in capri length blue jeans and shirts that show enough belly to qualify him as a back up dancer for Brittany Spears. I’m also in the market for a new laptop… I haven’t found the one I want yet… guess I’ll have to keep shopping!
Anyway, if you are the cowgirl type, I have recently listed some Two Bar West purses and handles. Here’s the LINK.

Jill - Hiya! I found your site by searching for Ottumwa photographers. Let me first say – WOW! I love the photos you take, the editing you do, and the personalities you capture. No. Really. Awesome-ness.
So I’ve been stalking your blog for a few months. No idea what possessed me to post today, as opposed to previous entries…
I recently did the major purge through my house as well. And while I’m all about Goodwill (both donating and buying – hey, I love a good find as much as the next person), there is a womens shelter in town (over by the hospital) that was way over the top gracious for the things we didn’t need. And while we don’t itemize on our taxes, they were more than willing to give a receipt if I wanted one. All the time I’m trying to find ways to show my son (who is 5) how to give back to the community (and we’re relatively new to this area) – and anyway, in the middle of winter – I felt this place was pretty good in the karma department.
Also? keep posting your shoots – one of these days I’m going to get all brave and actually schedule something with you – 🙂
