Are. So. Much. Work.
For over the past week I've been spending all of my free time over at my mom's house helping to get ready for the first garage sale she/we have ever had. In the past we've thrown things into other people's sales, but never really had our own.
In September, my mom is getting married. This means combining two households. Fun stuff. They decided that they would rent out his house (mostly because of location) and would live in her house. Both my sister and I have moved out and live in our own homes and we both may have had entire bedrooms of stuff at her house still. Oops.
So, I've been cleaning out my old room, going through all of my old stuff, tossing stuff, pricing stuff... I also made a sweep through our house and brought over a bunch of stuff.
There was an insane amount of stuff in this garage sale... the night before it started, we had stuff down the driveway covered in tarps because it wouldn't fit in the garage for overnight.
I would say it went decent. It would have been great if more had sold (obviously). The rest of it is being donated or tossed, depending on what it is. As soon as this posts, I'm on my way over to half priced books and another place that buys and re-sells household goods to try and see if they will buy some of the nicer stuff that was still left. Maybe make a couple extra bucks...
But that's where I've been and what I've been up to for the last couple weeks.
