As a student I move apartments rather frequently. In undergrad I moved back an forth from my parents house twice every year until I graduated. Grad school is no different.
If you have moved recently you will know that even if you don’t think you have a lot of stuff, you do. There are lots of little pieces of your life that you have been carrying around for who-knows-how long and more than once I'm sure you will ask yourself, "Why do I still have this?"
I only had a small apartment with a car-full of things, but I still was doing that alot. Most of the things that weren't trash I donated, but some of the things I knew I could probably sell and earn a bit of grocery (or beer) money.
This was my solution:
Inspired by the J. Peterman Catalog (yes, that J. Peterman) I decided to write novel stories about the items I was selling, and post them on my school's Free & For Sale Facebook Page.
Here are a few examples of the things I was able to sell.
