My road to Steemfest - selling stuff to finance my trip to Krakow

in steemfest •  16 days ago


Hey all,

It's official, I've got my ticket to Steemfest, thanks to the most generous person I've ever met @llfarms! But winning a ticket is not all, I need to also finance my trip to get there & lodging. I'd like to travel with my husband @el-cr, so I have to find a way to finance his ticket to SF3 also.
In order to raise cash, I've decided to go through my closet and house, and sell all the useless stuff I've accumulated over the years. Everything I'm not using on a daily basis has to go!

I also plan on using all my Steem and SBD towards that goal, so any upvotes from all of you will be even more appreciated now =)

Have you got any other ideas to raise cash quickly? If so, I'd be happy to hear them!

PS: this video was meant to be posted on Saturday, but my little neck accident got in the way of posting it sooner.

Congrats for the SF ticket! Good to see you representing in SF-3.

Have a great time there.

thanks, @xyzashu =)

It will be great for an ambassador like yourself to attend for sure. I wish I was among those travelling there but will set a goal to attend next year.

My upvotes are only a few cents but you gottit.

Can't wait to hear the stories and see the pics.

Ah thank you so much Zeke you know a few cents are still something and very much appreciated ! It’s a shame I won’t meet you this time around but hopefully next year 💪😀

Great idea Eve. Love your honesty "the sun glasses are old, ugly and they dont even protect you from the sun" :D Just so opposite from what people usually say and do when they sell stuff :) Btw did you notice the door closing on their own in the video at around 3 min.? Looks pretty creepy :D

Also - it is really nice that you want to take your hubby with you to the SteemFest. I will be happy to provide you with some extra support. I am also going to feature you in my tomorrow spotlight - feel free to hit me up on the chat if there is something particular you would like me to include in the text about you ;)

·

oh wow Peter that is very generous of you! I'll gladly accept the feature =) Thank you!!!! I don't really know what you need specifically, but whatever you feel like saying is OK with me!

About the door, I hadn't noticed hehehe must be a cat or dog doing the trick =)

Hey I always use skyscanner for travel deals. Those Gucci glasses make you look like a snob instantly lol.

·

AAHAHAHAH I look like a fly, or an ant, and a snob too LOL. That ridiculous purse also...I dunno what I was thinking back then. My colleagues would tell me stuff like"you need to wear a designer purse or nobody will take you seriously" and I believed that crap. SMH...

·

Well now you need a designer neck brace..

·

·

Lol ahaha I don’t plan on keeping it that long

Good on you Eve! I'm also selling stuff and the most recent to go is my Drysuit, which is the final piece of a full set of kit that I sold the rest of over a year ago to invest the money in cryptos. But the drysuit wouldn't sell back then for some reason. Here is a pic of it

it is literally all packaged, wrapped and ready to be picked up by courier tomorrow. A little part of me is sad but I didn't really enjoy much of the diving in the UK. Diving with seals was awesome, but other dives here were just dangerous and I nearly ended up getting swept out to sea on one of my dives in the Mersey estuary so maybe it is best ;-)

Lots of people giving it their all to get to steemfest 3 and I think it is great what you are doing selling all the clutter and especially to help el-cr make the trip with you. Awesome :-)

·

oh I understand that you are sad to sell it...part of you always thinks "maybe I'll need it at some point", but i figure whatever it is, you can still think about that later if it happens =) Great that you are selling that! I hear you about diving in the UK...pretty cold anyway =)

Ha ha, I sometimes forget that not everyone is a scuba nut like me. A drysuit is like a wetsuit but you have a hose attached to the front connected to the scuba air tank so that you can add air to the inside of the suit. Also, the suit is sealed at the wrists and kneck so that no water gets in. The air that is then added in creates an insulating layer and in partnership with a thermal undersuit, means you can dive in very cold water with less risk of getting hypothermia. I once went on a dive in a local quarry on Christmas eve and it was -2 Celsius at 17 meters at the bottom of the quarry. This is what I mean about UK diving being extreme lol

I much prefer tropical diving on the reef :-)

yeah wow, sounds very confining!!!!! Come to Panama next time Rowan =)

you are not very good at selling leather stuff heheheh ;)

I like your new life much more where you don't need to buy stuff all the time to be happy :)

·

ahaha I'm not very good at selling in general =) yes it was very sad. I'm glad I realized that I was unhappy, because when you'r n that situation you usually think it's normal.

I'll be glad to meet you at krakow. See you there.
