Garage Sale 2014 part 2

We were very tired last night but very much relieved at our success from the first day of our garage sale. The piles were much smaller today when we opened for business. Yesterday was sunny, hot and humid but today we started with clouds, a nice breeze and a little less humidity. We even had a few folks come back today to see if we had anything new that they couldn't live without. Fortunately, we did. Some lamps, TV, more clothing, clocks, pictures and miscellaneous housewares. I think it helped that people knew we were in a mood to sell today. We were at the point of "make me an offer". And they did and more stuff flew out the door. Traffic was a little slower today and it did start to get more sunny and humid as the day went on but we persevered and fruits of our labor paid off. Once we closed we got the leftovers boxed up for Goodwill or the local mission. We may take some to both places. Now we are pretty much down to the large furniture I spoke about in the last post.

Compare yesterday
To today...and this was in the morning before we opened.
I forgot to get a photo of the end of the sale today but we only have about 6-8 bags of "stuff" to send to the local charities. The garage looks so much better. We can even get the car in the garage today.
Tomorrow is the "BIG" day. We move in to the Bighorn. Very excited. We filled some totes with things we will be taking onboard and cleaning out some of the cabinets in the kitchen. The tired I feel today is a very good tired. We have been up at 5:45 am the last two days so tomorrow we will be sleeping in and preparing for the move. People have been so generous to buy our things, we are so grateful. Thank you for the comments and encouragement. As I always say, it won't be long.

  1. Getting rid of your "stuff" is both heart wrenching and exciting at the same time. Congrats on moving into the Bighorn. Lots of adventures ahead for sure!
