We decided two months ago to sell some stuff online. The reason being we need to downsize and move to a smaller place. It was a difficult decision because we are hoarders.
We have decided to sell everything we have not used in the past 18 years.
We were not sure where to start but after selling a few items this is what I have learnt:
We received more responses when we advertised on Olx but it was not possible to find our location on their standard advert form and I had to type it in under description and choose a town close to ours.
Gumtree has a more detailed town listing but not many genuine buyers responded.
We met some of the buyers at our places of work and so far everyone was polite and friendly.
Many people say they are interested and for some or other reason you hear nothing else from them.
Here is a fun advert. Enjoy your day!
CAPE TOWN – Sulking over a bike bought for love, one Cape Town man would like to trade in his two wheeler and girlfriend for a little bit of cash and perhaps a side serving of revenge.
This is not Gumtree’s first time being involved in a revenge case due to thwarted love. A year ago, another man in Cape Town sought to sell his half of the bed after he found out that his wife was cheating on him. It must be something in the water.

NO MORE ANTS
After trying several ‘tactics and remedies’ to win the battle against the influx of ants, we have finally won. The simple and inexpensive solution is sprinkling Epsom salts along skirting boards and the ants simply stayed away.
We found that a borax and sugar solution did not work for all ants. Ant traps are extremely expensive and seemed to attract ants instead of deterring them, although they claim that it kills those in the nest because the contents is carried away by the ants.
Just a thought about load shedding. Consumers are advised to switch off geysers, heaters etc. Is it not more logical to recommend turning off pool pumps, fridges & freezers?
Did you know the definition of Winter Blues is: Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) well I knew it wasn’t HAPPY.
I wish I had know this a week ago. My mom’s ankles look like this but because she was coughing I assumed she had flu.
When she finally agreed to let me take her to the GP he sent her straight to hospital. Today she was joking and said she can’t wait to get home and have a proper meal.
