Kristen and I have a LOT of stuff...but much less than we used to! Our various businesses required inventory, display furniture, and more. But between closing a retail store and 10 antique booths (not to mention personal collections of stuff), we realized that our house, 2-story garage, and 7 storage units were crazy FULL of stuff! It was COOL stuff, but stuff nonetheless...and it was costing us nearly a thousand dollars per month to store it. Something needed to change...and THAT is when we started the Great Purge!
Using a variety of selling strategies we had embraced over the used, our STUFF began turning into CASH...thousands of dollars worth of cash! And that cash brought with it a HUGE ah-ha moment!
