Garage Sale


I am sitting at a garage sale all day today and tomorrow… We have been working in the basement for 4 weeks getting rid of junk and pricing stuff for a garage sale and today is the day! Unfortunately it is raining and I’m not sure that is good for business. But the good news is I have gotten rid of a lot of stuff….and as the tables empty I have been going back into the house and getting more “stuff”. So by the end of the day tomorrow, I’ll be packing up as much as I had originally I think! We decided to continue our de-junking and work in the attic as our next project and have another garage sale in October when our town has its Oktoberfest!

My philosophy on having a garage sale is to bless others....when I was a stay at home mom I really appreciated being able to go to yard sales and finding gently used clothes and household articles that I could use. Molly and I could get pretty excited about nothing much at all.... and now I'm passing that feeling onto others as they find GAP jeans for $1 and American Eagle shirts for fifty cents. So that said, I counted my money and even at all the 25 and 50 cent items I made more money at the yard sale today than I would have working....so I guess I can justify the day off.


We are supposed to have beautiful weather this weekend... I hope you all have beautiful weather where you are!!!

Kay, I sure wish I could go through your "junk". Garage sales are lots of work but can be lots of fun too, especially when you see someone purchase something they really love. Good luck on your next one too.
