So, Corie's out here watching "Clean House" and we started discussing how they go through your stuff and see what they can sell to get money to fix things up and/or get new stuff (which seems futile to me, but...)
Corie was saying how she would get rid of anything to get nicer stuff or things like curtains/carpet for the house. Pauly and I agreed that there are certain things we would NOT sell, no matter what. She brought up that on the show they would ask me if they could sell my china cabinet. I told her that I'd tell them "If you touch it, your hand will be lost." And I mean it. I hav vowed to severely harm anyone that tried to do something with it. She was saying she'd easiy get rid of it because it could get money. No regard for the fact that it ws my grandma's and was a fixture of my childhood and has been promised to me since I was born. If it was up to her, she'd get rid of it. She also said if it was up to her, she'd get rid of brother's 250-300 records. We were both flabberghasted at that. Espescially coming from someone that supposedly likes music. She listens to music all the time, but she'd easliy get rid of all those records. Wha?? "but they look ugly in those plastic crates and they take up space. They're just wasting space." #1, they're purposely in those crates. Records belong in crates! #2, there's no such thing as records wasting space. She said she'd get rid of the records and use the money for things the house needs like curtains or carpeting. Huh? How do you trade awesome records for stupid, plain old curtains?
We were asking how she can NOT have anything she wouldn't get attached to and keep. She brought up living with deadbeat cousin who would refuse to buy food and things for the kids so she had to sell anything she had long ago. Now she refuses to form an attachment. I think that's not human, but...
Anyway, I was wondering how you all
felt. Would you easily and readily get rid of anything and everything you had for some money? Or are there some things you'd have to be convinced to get rid of? Never get rid of no matter what?
