I’m not actually minimizing my family but I’m helping my family minimize their stuff while we travel and stay with them.
My sister’s husband has an incredible bike that he isn’t using anymore so I offered to help them sell it and took pictures, wrote the description (with the help of Christopher Rubin) and posted it on craigslist. It is a steal at the price especially compared to what it originally cost. It is so light you can lift it with a single finger.
I’m a huge fan of craigslist because it is local and I don’t have to ship or box anything up.
It is also much quicker because I don’t have to wait the 7 days for an auction, like ebay, to finish.
And, last but not least, there is no commission to be paid to the site when the listed object sells.
I also posted an older 50 inch tv, in perfect condition, that they don’t need.
It is another reason I love social media, when used for productive purposes, because it lets people find something they may need while allowing others to get rid of things they no longer want.
In case you, or anyone you know are interested, here they are. Click on the pictures if you want to see the ad and know more about the bike or tv:
