We are into our second day of packing. It is unbelievable the amount of stuff (can't call it by any other name) we have collected in 14 years. While most of it is coming with us, we did have a few big items that we needed to dispose. And thus started our close encounters with Craigslist. My first hurdle was to convince my husband who believes that this is like extending a personal invitation to the dark side and that we are asking for trouble. However, when I told him that we would leave in 2 weeks and the dark side would have a long way to travel to reach us, he relented. As a parent, I am always looking for real life opportunities to teach my children. so I presented my 16 year old son,Tarun with a project. Establish a Craiglist account, take pictures of the items to sell and post it. If we get any takers, the money was his to keep. Of course, being the typical teenager with expensive tastes, he embraced the project with open arms.
