Defining "Destash"

I've been seeing the term "Destash" more and more recently, and I'm wondering what the official definition is. I'm pretty sure I know what it means (as in, it means to rummage through your own stuff and put it up for sale) but I'd like more input.

Thank you!

It isn't necessarily putting your stuff up for sale, but using (up) the materials you already have. Many crafters have the tendency to buy pretty supplies without having a specific use in mind, especially if the supplies are on sale. Over time, one can develop a large quantity of these. Destashing is a way to save money by not buying more new stuff, get a return on some of the money already spent, convert the pretties into something that can be appreciated rather than stored, and/or clear some space. Working only with what you have on hand can also be more creatively challenging.

This makes much more sense to me now. Thank you. I was looking for a concise but descriptive definition for the term, and you did just that.

Getting rid of stuff you already have to make way for new stuff! Usually doesn't involve making much profit.

Perfect. "Crap relocation program", the perfect name for my future craft room (making plans for my son's room for when he moves out). :D
