One thought on “The Download: LGBT, The Archers and de-cluttering

  1. I think that one of the obstacles to hoarding a lot of things from our past is our own insecurity. I would like to sell most of my possessions so that I can raise some money to install disabled facilities in my home. My local council dose not give grants but instead dictates what I can and what I cant have. I desperately need a downstairs wet room and toilet but I can’t get one so I have to pay for it myself. So what do I do with £20,000 + of tools and a lot of vintage hi fi and other things ?
    I find it hard to get the motivation and energy to sell them on ebay and even if I did I would find it exhausting to pack them up and take them to a post office to get them to a buyer. I know I could list them as collect only but do I want a lot of strangers coming into my home. I had thought of listings lot of vintage Apple computers but just don’t have the energy and cannot find people to help me do so. So yes I will probably end up leaving this life with a house full off stuff.
