hugtower (7 giorno/i fa) #22326178I wish I felt this way. Selling is so tedious. From listing to shipping out I hate all of it. The money and space gained is nice but other than that... I wish someone could do it for me lol
To elaborate on how much I hate it, I have to stop myself from just throwing things in the trash

I won't lie, I do get a little lazy getting stuff packed and sent out sometimes. But I purposely only give myself the 2 days to ship out time on eBay to keep myself on my toes, haha.

TyjosAzari (7 giorno/i fa) #22325725Ah I know this feeling ALL TOO WELL.
After spending so much time purging my collection over the past 2 years and taking care of things like reducing clutter and getting out of debt it gets addictive when you are making a LOT of money from cleaning things out.
That type of thinking has resulted in late nights for me when I had a ton of stuff asking "Hmmm I wonder how much this will make me?" when I was looking at things and had things set at low prices and they sold very fast and I made a lot in a short amount of time.
Right now I'm finishing up with selling and will miss that flow of funds that come in with selling but I am happy to get to where I can relax and enjoy the hobby again plus it feels great to recover display space and making room for new stuff so I understand how the it feels to get clear of a lot of stuff.
Glad to hear you are enjoying it, enjoy it while it lasts and don't let it burn you out when you get hooked on selling too much and having too deal with shipping out a ton of stuff to the point you get tired of shipping boxes out.

That's great! Hopefully some tidier/emptier shelves will leave me feeling the same. :) I've only been selling stuff in chunks so I don't have to deal with too much at one time since I am the type to get easily overwhelmed.

Same here! Although I don't really make a profit since I'm more interested in the downsizing aspect of it and want to make sure the item goes, but it's definitely nice to make some money back as opposed to the figure just sitting around.

WindsorSeven (7 giorno/i fa) #22325301There's worse things to be addicted to when it comes to this hobby, so good job lol.
Haha, thank you!
maggie (7 giorno/i fa) #22325326Yeah it can be arduous (I personally have a LOT to sell) but it's certainly nice getting the money, clearing out space, and also rewarding when sometimes the new owner tells you how excited they are for the item.
Most of the time I don't miss what I sell...

Yeah, I'm noticing that once it's out of sight, it's pretty much out of mind, too. One of the positives of a bad memory, I suppose! Good luck with your selling!
Emily_katie (7 giorno/i fa) #22325531Yesssss I totally understand what you mean!
It's so nice! Wish I started it sooner!

I had a figure collection of 240 figures. I'm down to 9 figures I decided to keep as shown in my profile collection. It was hard letting go of a lot of figures. Most of my figmas, nendoroids, and scales :( but I'm actually more happy I don't have a lot of stuff. My detolfs were cluttered, boxes upon boxes everywhere cause I didn't open my nendoroids or figmas, just opened my scales.

I loved selling my figures, I made back $18,000. I was like wow when I saw my bank account. A handful of figures I made less than what I bought for, a lot I broke even, and a handful I made a profit. Now after selling my figures I'm looking for anything in my room to sell. Been selling off my comics, manga, older figures, etc. so far non figures I made $6000. Still got a ton of comics to sell.

Now I'm very careful of what figures I purchased but I think I'm done with anime figures. There is just sinon from alter I'm waiting to be painted and FMA nendoroids because FMA is my favorite and I would love to have the figures on my shelf with the manga. :)

Good for you for selling your figures and I'm glad we share the same feeling about it! I wish you well in your future figure endeavors!

rivalappears (7 giorno/i fa) #22326934lol, yeah someone once reported me on here because they decided I had "too much" for sale.
Better than my case... They're​ gossip about me and they're 'thinking' that I have some kind of sponsor for my figures :')
