It's Not When You Start, It's How You Finish

Surprise, here is your September Procrastination Post...
  1. Leonardo da Vinci, one of the Italian Renaissance's greatest geniuses, labored over the Mona Lisa for over a decade. 
  2. J.R.R. Tolkien, the English writer, took 14 years to complete Lord of the Rings
  3. Al Jarreau, the popular singer, didn't have a hit record until he was 41. 
  4. Saint Augustine, one of the foremost philosopher-theologians of early Christianity, didn't pursue his faith seriously until he was almost 40. 
  5. Rodney Dangerfield, the actor and comedian, didn't get rolling until he was 42 years old.
  6. Colonel Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), began his franchise in his sixties. 
  7. Raymond Chandler, the author of crime stories, published his first short story at 45, and his first novel at 50. 
Here's your challenge: Make a list of household goods you don't need. Then estimate what your net gain would be if you sold them on eBay.

-Dishwasher, but it is good for a dish rack to dry the dishes(and fills space under the counter).
-Old monitor and desktop. Neither one is worth much I'm sure.
-2nd mop, I would like a steam cleaner for the tile floor.
