So, it's done. Yard sale is O-V-E-R. Thank goodness. I really do hate doing them. Didn't make much money (as expected).
However, the stuff did NOT go back into my house. It took 4 car trips, and my boys helped out a lot, but we brought all the left over to my church for it's annual flea market which will held in 2 weeks.
I won't say I feel "great", but I feel good. Glad it's over, exhausted from being out all day, relief that it's all out of my house. It was a beautiful day. I had 2 good friends over to share it with (who were also selling some stuff).
Why were you inspired to do this?
Extra money. Simplify. Get rid of everything w/o just throwing it all out. Whatever I don't sell will be donated to my church's flea market.
What were 3 things you did to make this happen?
Go through my house room by room with a clear head to see what I can get rid of.
Pick a date. I want to have it done before camping season starts in May, so it'll be either April 23rd or April 30th.
Get a permit. Set up and sell, sell, sell.
How did you feel once you had accomplished this?
I absolutely HATE having yard sales. People are rude, and they steal stuff. I'm usually a liker of all people, but I need to be ready and focused to deal with some of these people (not all ~ I wouldn't make that general a comment).
