We participated in our neighborhood’s yard sale the other weekend. We didn’t have too much stuff (I may have skewed expectations of yard sales from my childhood), but we figured this was an easy time to get rid of some junk. For other ways we’ve been de-junking, see these posts.
The rule was that nothing could come back in the house.* So after we decided to call it quits (about noon-it was raining), we packed up the little Aveo and carted it all off to Goodwill. I think overall we made about $60, but more importantly we got rid of a car-load of crap! Success!
*We broke this rule to allow a fondue pot we’d gotten from our wedding to come back in. We decided to start using it. Phil and I have used it twice since then, and we’re having the neighbors over for a fondue party tonight. So I think it was an acceptable exception to the rule.
