About a month ago I emptied out an old locker that I had full of my child’s clothing of all different sizes and ages.
I felt sad and happy as I travelled thru the memories of the different stages of my child wearing the clothing. I was very surprised that the simple task of emptying a locker was filled with so many feelings. It was the end of an era, 12 fun extraordinary years that had gone by in a blink. So in hindsight it was no wonder that I had put off the task for so long.
I had a really hard time letting go of the items even though most of them needed to be thrown out never to be used again. I kept saying, oh remember this, oh remember that, remember when we went here! In the end there were a number of items that I just couldn’t part with so I saved them for no reason other then nostalgia!
However recently I happened on a fabulous app My Tot Spot that Beth Engelman a friend and colleague of mine from 411voices recommended to me. Beth blogs at mommy on a shoestring and I love her many fabulous tips. I immediately became really excited and looked into it. Low and behold I had found the solution to my problem of hoarding lovely clothes that no longer fit but were so full of loving memories that I kept them in the closet way too long!
I downloaded the app and quickly pulled out 4 items that I loved. I then eagerly took pictures and began to upload with the idea of posting and selling ! The idea to sell the items my child had outgrown took hold.
There is something very exciting about this app that didn’t leave me feeling as sad that I had moved to the next phase of life with my child. ( Although I am enjoying this phase too)
Here are the four items that I am selling wish me luck!
It was really easy to upload the pictures I took, and then add the sizes, description and price! Easy as one two three and the buyer pays shipping, yay!
Here is a picture of my closet on the App!
And as the saying go: “Try it you will love it “ Just like I did!
