rfs23:  I need to find a local shop for my designer jeans.  My USED running shoes get snapped up, but my Rock and Republics don’t sell (????). 

I became aware of Trasey after I had already sold the majority of my stuff (not DH’s).  Is it really less time consuming than eBay?

heputaringonit:  Yes, I think so. The process of listing is simpler, and they only do clothing, accessories, shoes, etc. And they actually take 1% less of your money, and they offer to send you their branded shipping materials with a prepaid label, or just a prepaid label, or you can do your own shipping (though of course they add the cost of each option to your item price).

I’ve also seen ads for a new app called LetGo, but haven’t tried that myself.

I wonder if the running shoes sell better because people have an easier time justifying them as a useful purchase? 😉

rfs23:  DH thinks it’s because people aren’t 100% confident they aren’t fakes… although I have sold Tiffany jewlery and some of my Louis on there and have great feedback, so who knows!

But seriously, USED running shoes.

heputaringonit:  Hey, good running shoes are EXPENSIVE! I’d take some lightly used ones if it was a really big savings over new.

Of course, there could be fetishists out there too…

NFLwidow:  LOL! Same here, I feel ya! I tend to clean and declutter when he’s not around. If he doesn’t see it go, chances are he’ll never miss it. 

He would have noticed the mugs though. He’s crazy about his mugs!

What I do is hide the crap for a few weeks and if he doesn’t notice, they go in the bin. Lol 

EDIT: things like holey socks go straight in the bin but he used to have such a problem with this and claim they were his faves! 😅 The man is crazy.

bdjhxo:  Lol my guy loves holey clothes, too. He’ll gladly toss out childhood relics, but any shirt with holes he claims is his favorite (which is BS), and when there’s a sock with a hole he gets all defensive. Now I just toss them out of the laundry 😉

Same. His response is always ‘but they’re my comfy house clothes’ wait, so you can’t wear comfy clothes without holes in them? REALLY??? lol

I can sooo relate to this!! We bought an Olympic weight bench and weights over a year ago. We used them for 1 month and they have been taking up space in our spare room since. I said I want to sell it, so I can set up my sewing machine, etc and have space to work. He refuses to sell it, always saying he is going to use it again when I know he isn’t. It not like I can push it to the side either. Then he bought all of these supplies to make molds and cast things but hasn’t made one thing with them. When I suggest selling them to make a little money and have some more space, he says he is going to use them and we are NOT selling them!! I’d be ok just getting rid of the weight bench, honestly, so I could have a space for sewing stuff. sigh.

Darling Husband has one of those plastic milk crates from Target to keep his clutter in so that when people come over I can just pick it up and set it in the guest room.
