In the last month, I have used Craigslist to sell my blender, mixer, crockpot, coffeemaker, microwave, vacuum, kettle, shelves, folding chairs, pots, pans, and bed.
Watching my bed go seemed to be the hardest, and I wasn’t looking forward to sleeping on the floor for a week.
Let me first say that I have NO REASON to whine about this—since I sold the bed Thursday I’ve had numerous offers of couches to crash on as well as sleeping bags and camping mats to borrow.
Three nights on the floor and I feel fine! I have a borrowed camping mat and a ton of blankies and pillows. It’s cozy.
What hurts is the lack of coffee-making tools. Coffeemaker went first, but I could always boil hot water and strain it. Kettle went last weekend, and Friday I gave up my pots and pans.
This morning I used the shared kitchen’s microwave to heat up water, and tried to brew in a different mug.
I really do feel like I’m camping. It’s an adventure!
