Time is going by really fast and we are already towards the end of March! My goal for each month is to list 100 items. If I’m lucky and find 25-30 pieces a week, I will be set!
Reality: life happens and it’s not always all about thrifting, listing and shipping. It’s about keeping your sanity and figuring out a great balance between your priorities. I don’t ever find 25-30 items a week since I got extremely picky with the items I purchase that I know will sell well.
My priority right now is family. I’ve been meaning to work on my flower bed and was able to get it going these past few days and with the help of my son and husband, we were able to get some plants after pulling out all the weeds and now all we have to do is plant them.
I also got an email from my local thrift store that yesterday and today they were doing another 50% off all clothing and shoes aside from their weekly 50% off on all clothing and shoes as well. DO YOU KNOW HOW TEMPTING THAT WAS FOR ME NOT TO GO? I was itching inside to go, but didn’t.
I still need to work on my death pile from Wednesday anyway. On top of all these priorities I have going aside from reselling, my husband and I are looking for a venue to have a wedding. We eloped and would like to have a small gathering with close family and friends. We’ve looked at two venues for now and I have to say, the bargain hunter in me is making this venue hunting a bit of breeze.
So the take away from all of this is simple: stay cool, keep your sanity and don’t feel discourage if you can’t accomplish your goals. It’s ok to have a few set backs. It’s ok to be tired from being under the sun all day, coming home to a messy house, exhausted as hell knowing you have a death pile sitting in your office that needs to be taken care of. It’s ok! There is tomorrow. Rest. Relax. Life happens! It’s not an excuse to be lazy, it’s a reality check letting you know that it’s ok.
