selling and donating and moving

Sweet. I just sold an old PS one game I bought for $25 years ago to someone on amazon.com for $50 ^o^. That hardly ever happens where a game is worth more than it used to be.

Note to self: try to sell doujinshi again! I've sold quite a few, but I still have a ton in that box under my bed ^^;;;.

Ahh, preparing to move is stressful. I'm selling/donating %50 of my worldly possessions, I bet ^^;;;. Mostly donating XD. I can't take it all with me to Japan, though, and I don't want to treat my parents' house like a storage shed. I will leave a few things that I can't give up and can't take at their house, but most everything else is being dropped off at the local hope center in boxes XD;.

*feels lighter and lighter from this world with every trip to the hope center to dump things off*

I'm trying to find a copy of ff7 for the ps1, and frankly? most of the copies i find I'm lucky if they cost under 100.
if it's popular, and old. and there aren't enough copies to go around, then they're going to sell for lots

I went to an anime con, and the place that was selling ff7 for 80 bucks (they had two copies) they were sold out of it by like 2 hrs into the con.

Holy wows, you're right o.O;. I guess I sold my copy of FF7 too early, because I sold it last year for $55, and I thought I made a killing XD. Have you tried going around to local used video game stores?

That's crazy that FF7 is costing that much, because I think they even released a Greatest Hits cheaper version one time, which puts a lot more into circulation. I hope you find a copy of it, because it's a really fun game ^o^. Maybe they'll rerelease it for a current console or something.

they did release a greatest hits copy.
technically i have a copy, for pc, but to play it on an xp pro machine you need to download a patch, and the patch doesn't work for me and makes parts of it unplayable. and requires constantly reinstalling
I would totally pay 80 bucks for a copy without thinking, so you sold too early XD

believe me, I've been everywhere
sides, i don't have the cash atm anyways >>:

I'm going through that right now, only with cd's and dvd's (and I should do it with books too, but I have such a hard time getting rid of the written word). It's so bittersweet for me because everything has a lot of memories, but it's like...I don't have room for it and I'm hoping to move out when I get back from Japan and then I'll have to share a place with Jeremy and really, most of it I don't need. But still. :|

I'm selling CD's and DVD's and books too XD;... *is trying to sell anything that doesn't make her cry to get rid of*

It's so weird how we can get so attached to possessions... but you have to get rid of stuff if you ever want to move XD. It's WAY too difficult to go live somewhere else if you have an ungodly amount of stuff.

HERE'S MY TIP! I get rid of stuff in waves... first sell the things that don't mean that much to you, and then start selling the things that are more difficult to sell... you get so used to the motions of getting rid of stuff, that it's not as hard to get rid of some of those memory-attached things that you don't NEED by the end of it all.

Ahh, that's so exciting that you'll move in with your boyfriend ^_^! Have you picked out a new place, or will you just move into his current place?

There's a big sale every year at my mom's church during Byronfest (a little festival my tiny town puts on every year) and I always get rid of a ton of stuff that way. This year I'm expanding outside of clothes though.

I'm not selling a lot of stuff, simply because I don't have the energy to make listings on eBay, Half, and Amazon. Donating means I won't have money, but it also means I don't have to spend a ton of time on it. I will sell a few dvd box sets, some doujinshi, and manga though. <3

We both still live at home, which is pretty ridiculous when you consider our ages (24 and 26 respectively) but we've both never been good at managing money and we're still trying to go to school as well so it's been hard to get everything in order. We've been looking at places in Rockford, seeing what we can get for what we can afford, but we probably won't move until the end of the year. I'll have to make up for an insane amount of spending when I'm on my trip. XD

Ganbatte on passing on your worldly possessions on those lucky people. They'll appreciate it. ^_____^
