Get ready ... the sale starts April 27

It's been a long time coming, but I'm only a few weeks away from launching All My Life for Sale — the third round. This is an interesting social experiment I've wanted to do for years, and I'm finally getting around to going live with the sale of, well, my life.

I'm selling everything (almost) I own on eBay in an experiment to see why I collect the things I do. I have boxes upon boxes of stuff from my past that just collects dust in closets inside my tiny apartment. And I'm finally ready to let it go.

The last 15 months or so, since I bought the domain name for one shiny Abraham Lincoln (that's a penny, folks) in an eBay auction, have been spent beginning to inventory my belongings ... I still have a long way to go, too. But I'm ready to begin selling what I already have inventoried.

I figure there's no better day than on my 30th birthday to start what is bound to be one of the most bizarre — I am pretty sure my mom thinks I'm crazy — experiments of my life.
