Suffering with my addiction

I suffer from an addiction to auctions. I don't care if it's live or online, I just can't keep myself from bidding.
Last night I went to an auction w/the intention of buying some parts for some vintage campers I have (another addiction), and while I bought a lot of item I really need (underground water line/snow fence/wheel bearings/ladders) I also bought a pick-up truck.
It's only got 58K miles on it, no rust, and it runs fine, and I only paid $1,000 for it, but I don't need it. I bought it to resell, figuring I could flip it easy enough, but I really don't need to be in the car/truck resale business.
Two weeks ago, I was on a cell phone call w/a rep friend of mine. I pulled off to the side of the road because I was going to be going out of range. As I talked to her, I had my window down, and could hear noise coming from the back of the blg . I was parked in front of. I hung up, walked to the back of the blg., and sure enough, it was an auction!
They were auctioning off a brand new nautilus type weight machine, with 9 stations, and couldn't get a bid. I bid $25, and guess what...Yeah, we now have a home gym. To be fair (to me) my wife and son have been asking me for one, and they are very pleased with the purchase, so I guess it's not all bad.
The problem is (as other Optiboarders that have seen can attest) I've got too much "valuable";)stuff sitting in my warehouse. I think there's only one solution:
I need to have an auction!!
