Having a Kodak Moment


Everyday in my decluttering efforts I am finding all kinds of things. Here is my first camera - so even though I am still very young, cough cough, it was not a digital. It initially belonged to my mom until I started using it. Can't remember the last time I saw it.

Now...what to do with it? I remember taking this on my 6th grade field trip to Boston. Someone has an identical one on ebay with a Buy It Now price of $9.99 so it's not valuable, money wise. . I am trying to declutter but when it comes to stuff I had as a child, part of me wants to hang on to stuff even though I know I will never use it again - and I don't have a place to display it etc etc. Just because my mom used it and I used it, doesn't mean I need to hang on everything, right??? So should I just mark it $1 and sell at my next yardsale to some camera collector?

The local Parks & Recs is having an indoor December yardsale - so I'll be signing up to sell at that one. It's a good one to sell at since people are out doing a lot of shopping in December.

And in going thru my large stash of books, I found an old paperback that I could have mailed to some boy in the armed forces, but the book was in poor condition so it went to paper recycling.



More stuff left the house than came in, so it was good day.

You should totally keep that camera, I support it.

But only if you give away two other things. :)

I think I had a similar camera: definitely sell it at your next sale or donate it......Susan C.

Chris,

I have the EXACT same camera. It was mine when I was a little girl, too. I looked it up on eBay not too long ago and found the same thing - it's not worth much. Mine is in my closet; I hate to part with it because I remember using it when I was young.
