May set off to explore without any sense of direction or how to return.

Yes, just moved, got rid of a bunch of stuff, then got a bunch more.

That's why I gotta change modes. If I don't, my house is gonna be completely dedicated to storage, and I will be living in my pickup.

There must be some cable show you could star in.

Perhaps for an entire season.

I'm feeling a tremendous kinship.

This forum could start a co-op.

REI started as a co-op and technically still is.

I have no desire to bother with a garage sale but if there were a consignment shop for outdoor gear I might go for that.

Have an extra mountain bike (actually I have three mountain bikes, one I consider a spare), a few hardly-used campstoves, couple more tents to sell. And then there's the unused organizer bag collection....

Am perpetually one great bag away from being organized.

IMHO rampant, needless consumerism, squandering of resources, leaving my country devoid of manufacturing capacity, and the transferrence to national wealth to countries who don't like us anyway is inherently MORE un-American. I could be wrong. wink

We're slowly paring down as well. I've taken a boatload of stuff to Goodwill. More is on the way...little by little...

I live less than 15 miles on the road from both the headquarters and the warehouse for Tandy. Plus the fellow who bought Tandy Leathers (from the Tandy Corp.).......

We built his last 2 houses.
I do the things that I must, and really regret, are unfortunately necessary.

Maybe Doug can start an exchange corner or something.

I think thats a good idea... we all have stuff that we need to get rid of. Maybe an ETS members only Freecycle/trade board??

I'm doing the same thing. It's nice to lighten the load. I've sold over $1700 worth of stuff in the past month alone.

I've also been buying stuff cheap on Craigslist and reselling on eBay for a profit. Mostly laptops. I'll give them a little TLC and make a few bucks, but if I see anything that is way underpriced, I'll pick it up locally and sell it on eBay.

The more available storage space we have the more stuff we accumulate. At least for me. Thats why I prefer small/med. EDC bags, otherwise I'd be a mobile pack rat. I find setting limits on the amount of space dedicated to "stuff" helps keep clutter down.

If you are talking about copies of DVD you bought legally, then I don't think you should have any legal issues. However, if you copied or burned them, selling such copies might be a problem.
