How Much Is Your Junk Worth?

   0

The great purge continues! Since it's Chinese New Years, this is a fitting post. During this time of the year, you are suppose to get rid of old stuff, and clean things up. Start the new year off fresh. I'm just getting rid of all my junk.

So I made this vid as a way to showcase some of the more interesting gamer and geek stuff I sold. And I was blown away how much people were willing to pay for them. Guess how much a copy of The Elder Scrolls Daggerfall goes for? Or how about a brand new Gizmondo handheld system? 

It's amazing how much stuff you collect over the years. And how much of it you really don't need anymore. Sports equipment for sports I haven't played in years. Games that sit on a shelf for showcase, but no one really cares. Kitchen appliances you got for a gift and used once because it seemed novel but you never touched again.

So why get rid of all this stuff? This was partly fueled by our plans to move (which have been pushed back.) But then evolved into a desire to live life minimally for 2015. Perhaps it would encourage us to explore more rather than "nest." Perhaps it's the realization that all this stuff really hasn't added much value or joy to our lives. I'm all for capitalism, and materialism sure does feel like a sweet drug high initially, but then you realize how you own enough clothes to wear something new for months, and most of the world has a wardrobe that lasts a week. 

And I'll tell you what. Since getting our whole life down to a few boxes, it feels WICKED AWESOME. I never expected it to be so liberating! So before you throw away your crap, try selling and see how much you can get for it!

MORE NONSENSE ON MY YOUTUBE

I'm a game developer, and head up several gaming studios, including Wicked Loot and FitGoFun. Been in the game industry for many years now. It's the only life I know.

I pretty much done it all. QA. Marketing. Game Design. Coding. Editor. The guy who had to wear the (stank) mascot costume at a gaming event. The guy who drove a truck to deliver games to a warehouse. For the love of the game.


It's sorta about games. But mostly about my life.
