I am getting rid of my Love Sac. As awkward as this may sound, it's a good thing. For anyone who doesn't know what a Love Sac is, click on the link to learn for yourself. Basically it's an oversized bean bag that's made out of foam instead of bean bag stuff. About three years ago, they were the "cool" thing to have and Love Sac opened a bunch of retail stores across the country. One of the stores they opened was in The Woodlands Mall. I happened to know the manager of the store and he gave me a 50% discount on whatever I wanted. So I bought a 6' Love Sac and put a faux polar bear fur cover on it. This thing is sweet. It's great for laying in to watch a movie, take a nap, or read a book. It's easily big enough for two people and can even fit three people on it. Now that I live in downtown Houston, I had kind of forgotten about the Love Sac. It's up in The Woodlands at my parents' house in a guest room. I had forgotten about it until my Mom called asking if I wanted her to give the Love Sac to the Salavation Army. I was like, "What?!?!?!?!?! Are you kidding me? That thing is worth over $600!!!" So I told my Mom that I would figure out what to do with it and get rid of it for her since it literally takes up half a room. Well Mom, you'll be proud of me. I'm getting rid of the Love Sac this weekend!!!!!! On Monday I decided I would post it on Craigslist(which I had never done before). I just did a simple post with no pictures thinking I would take some pics next time I'm in The Woodlands and add them to the post. Well about an hour later I had six e-mails from people wanting the Love Sac. My original asking price was $100 but I realized demand was high and ended up selling it for $125 and the girl is picking it up tomorrow! I ended up paying about $250 for the Love Sac almost four years ago so I'm pretty happy with my 50% return. I'll probably miss the Love Sac at some point, but I know for a fact that my Mom won't miss it taking up the entire guest room!
