While scouring through Krrb today we found our new favorite tag: Crap from my Mom. Now, moms are great and we all know this but sometimes they can be a little overgenerous with their hand-me-downs. That’s why Krrb member Shizuka started posting some listings this morning of “crap from her mom.” It’s not junk per se, but it is something that you didn’t necessarily want or need. Mom insists though, no matter how many times you tell her you don’t want it she won’t take no for an answer.
As the saying goes, “mother knows best,” and she’ll hold you to this as she tries to pawn off her junk to your apartment. “Why don’t you just trash this stuff mom?” You’ll ask and she’ll reply with a simple, “So-and-so gave this to me. I can’t get rid of it. You take it and cherish it forever.” Little does she know, it’s going to sit somewhere in a box until the next time she comes over and you use it for decoration for the few days she’s around. Instead of letting this crap rot in hand-me-down purgatory, why not sell it on Krrb? But shh, we won’t tell mom if you don’t!
Do you have any “junk” your mom gave you that you’d like to get rid of? List it on Krrb and let us know in the comments!
