1-A-Week: Week 3: Broken Subwoofer

Jan 20, 2011 by

** UPDATE ** Less than an hour later it was picked up.  I love Craigslist so much.

This weeks One-A-Week is an old Subwoofer I’ve had sitting around for way too long.  It stopped working some time ago and I’ve tried fixing it multiple times to no avail, so finally its getting out of my house.

This weeks method of removal is the good ole “curb alert” on craigslist.  Simply put your item you are giving away out on the curb and post it on craiglist of when they can pick it up.  Super easy.  Just be nice and remove your craigslist posting when the item(s) are taken.

Craigslist tips for Curb Alerts

  • don’t put your phone number – you’ll get calls all day
  • for free stuff like this you don’t even need an email, just put your address
  • Take the post down as soon as the item is taken

What item are you getting rid of this week for your 1AW?

1-A-Week: Week 2: The old Xbox

Jan 13, 2011 by

I’m starting something new.

Its called One A Week or 1AW for short.  Its a new goal for 2011 to give/sell/throw away 1 thing each week that you don’t need.  Each week, one thing.  Every week I will get rid of something I don’t need, never use, don’t want etc.

Too Much…

We all have too much stuff and could use from a little de-cluttering.  I’m pretty good and cleaning out our stuff every once in a while, but this will help/force me to get a little more aggressive on it and do something each week.  What do I have laying around the house that never gets used and is just in the way?  What can I throw away that I’ve been saving for way too long?

So I’m starting this retroactively for last week.  Its always nice to start in the middle of a project that way it looks like there is some progress.  For last week, we’ll call the cleaning out of my island my 1AW.

This weeks 1AW

But for this 2nd week of January I am selling my old Xbox that I never play.

I get rid of a thing that no one uses, I get a cleaner living room, and I get some money out of the deal(hopefully).

So you in?

Here are the rules:

  1. 1 item per week (at least)
  2. You can sell it, give it away or throw it away (recycle if you can)
  3. Thats it.

If you could leave a comment of what you got rid of that would help inspire others and I’d love to keep a running tally of total number of things everyone has gotten rid of.

Who’s in?

Will you join me in 1AW for for the next 50 weeks?

What can/should you get rid of this week?

Let me know what you are getting rid of in the comments
