In the summer I bought a Nintendo Wii, got a few games, a few more accessories, played on it quite a bit and then forgot all about it. I turned it on the other day and found out that I hadn?t played on it since 12th September 2008, over 3 1/2 months ago.
In the interests of saving money and reducing the amount of crap I own, I made the bold move that it would be better to sell the Wii on whilst it still retained some monetary value, and so I?ve just sold it for £160 to one of my Mum?s work colleagues (paid £290 brand new inc. games and accessories). I might have been able to get a bit more by putting it on ebay, but factoring in fees, postage, paypal, and hassle, in reality I probably wouldn?t have got that much more, and this way was so much easier.
Having chatted to other Wii owners I know, many of them don?t play much and only do so if they?ve got friends around, so is it worth having that little white box sitting next to the telly? I didn?t think so and am happy that I?ve got some value back for it, as opposed to holding onto it whilst the prospective prices tumble.
That?s a little less clutter at home, but now I feel the need to get rid of a few more bits that I?ve been hording, although none are probably as appealing as a Wii, and I may have to opt for Freecycle to shift them.
This is the start?
