Our garage was stuffed to the brim with 3 years of “stuff”. We had boxes of old daycare toys, tubs of out-grown clothes, knick knacks, office supplies, kitchen items, bikes, books and more stuff that you can even imagine in there. So, when our neighborhood yard-sales came around, we decided to grab a couple or six tables from our church and just start pulling stuff out to start selling.
We started setting out items at 1:30pm for the sale to start at 3pm. Yep, we’re crazy like that sometimes. But, with a house full of kids here daily, there doesn’t leave much time for planning and organizing something like that. If you did, you’d be WAY overwhelmed.
So, we just jumped in and decided we’d get done what we could and wouldn’t stress about it and boy, am I glad we did! The weather was beautiful and the die-hards were out in full force. We sold a ton of stuff between the both days, made some cash PLUS cleared out a bunch of stuff. I could actually pull my van in now if I wanted to! Yay! You have no idea how much better I feel!
The kids even got into the yard-sale fun and sold Lemonade to our shoppers. They didn’t make more than our first famous attempt at a lemonade stand, but they did make $8! Much more than I ever made! They were so excited!
Both Ella and Andrew were such troopers for the long two days of mom and dad being so busy and having to hang out, so we took them to a fun pizza and game place for dinner. They were more than thrilled and I am worn out!
Looking forward to a much slower pace tomorrow! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!
