I've been thinking about this a lot lately, having just moved last weekend. There are a number of items I've either given away or plan on selling, things someone else will be able to use. I've also used craigslist to see if I can find the items I'm looking for the new place with some success.

Not everything needs to be new, and we could all benefit from cleaning some things out of our homes (and lives).

Great point Jonathan! If more people make a conscious effort to be both seller AND buyer of pre-owned goods, both the cash and utility remain where it is needed most -- the private sector.

Perhaps this is a "trickle up" form of prosperity?

Thanks for the thoughts...

I couldn't agree with you more!! I love to sell things that I am no longer using and see the sheer delight on someone else's face for getting such a great deal for something that I am no longer using.

It has brought me such joy and . . . I must add here . . . long live Craigslist!
