    Things you'd sell first should you get into financial burden

    We all have something we'd be willing to sacrifice if need be. What would you let go?

    For me:

    The knives. I'd let them go first. Quick money, holds their value somewhat and I know a bunch of people that would want them.

    Probably first have a major garage sale to get rid of all the general junk one accumulates over the years. If I had to get rid of my valuable stuff, I'd probably start with my woodworking tools. They typically go under-utilized for most of the time.

    Forgot about a garage sale. Yeah, I'd actually do that first. Then the knives. *whew* Thanks for that, Alfster.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Yup, I'd have to agree, I would def sell your knives before I sell my valuable stuff. =0p

    I'd return all of the unworn items with tags back to Nordstrom then put one of my properties on the market.

    We'd probably sell my car. Don't really own anything except the house, 2 cars, 2 bikes and 4-5 surfboards. My car doesn't get used much.

    Yeah, but I think giving up the mechanic who cleans my bike would be really cutting to the bone...

    The truth is all these people work for the company, and our home is a meeting place and office. I would honestly just as soon not have everyone around doing all these things, and I do cut my own grass with a scythe.

    Motorcycle, the RV, one of the cars. The video games and bikes are too hard to part with. People complain about Craigslist, but I find I get a hell of a lot more money for stuff I list there than I would paying someone 10-20% to do it for me.

    One of the Monets probably. Some of the Chihuly pieces. The Type 56 Bugatti and one of the gull wing Benzs. After that I would really have to think about what would generate the most cash.

    The wife and I have discussed that very issue. I've said on a few occassions that if things get tight, I may have to lay her off.
    Of course, I only say this because I can out run her.

    On a serious note, I have my collection of WW II military uniforms and equipment, some of my bikes and if things become desperate,
    and I mean really desperate, my '72 Porsche 914.

    I too, am a big fan of REI and will snatch a good deal when I see one however, I would rather give up things from Nordstrom because any item from there is a want, never a need.

    If I really got into a tight spot, I'd sell the car, then my hats. But not all of them.
    I love pho long time.
