Garage Sale has begun and Full timing soon

Time is moving on...We sold the house and now it's time to purge. Garage Sale today and tomorrow. This is most of the things we plan to sell other than the furniture which will be sold individually at a slightly later date. We decided not to put the larger furniture in the sale since you typically don't get the kind of prices we think our "good" furniture deserved. So once the sale is over I will take photos of the "good" stuff and post on the company website and Craigslist.


I can't believe even after taking some things to our daughter's a few weeks ago we still have this much stuff. The photos shows what it looked like at 8 am as we opened for business. We had a good day and actually had some fun. It was interesting as folks asked where we were going once we closed on the house that we were going to be fulltime RV'ers. Most folks thought it was great. Other's said they couldn't do that and others told us stories of their parents or grandparents that were full timers at one point in their lives. It's amazing the great responses and the great help we got in selling our "stuff.

Tomorrow we have some additional items that hopefully will bring some people back. The house is looking less cluttered and hopefully after tomorrow there won't be too much to take to Goodwill or The ReStore.

Since we will have sold most everything in the house that would make it still live able we decided to move the rig over to the RV park a coupled days earlier than we planned to go on July 1. So Sunday June 29, 2014  marks a big milestone, we will be full timers but stationary. We will be half way to our RV Dream. I got my MiFi modem from Millenicom yesterday so we will have internet connection once we move but we're not sure if we will sign up for satellite TV right away.

We found out the woman buying our house did get her loan approved so as far as we know it is still a go for closing on July 25. Will keep you posted on the progress of the sale tomorrow and as I continue to work to retirement and it won't be long.

  1. Isn't it amazing how much stuff houses have them that we don't really realize, Our garage sale was a great way to say goodby to folks we'd know in town over the years but didn't see on a regular basis since the kids all grew up. I remember the last night at our house, we hadn't sold it yet but were optimistic and were set to move into the rv for the summer, lots of emotions but the final walk through was the worse, then when we got the check in our hands at closing-freedom, wouldn't trade it for the world. Almost time to say hello to your new life :)

    1. It is amazing. It was fun talking to so many people that know someone, knew someone or would like to be full time RV'ers. Very grateful we made it this far. Freedom is around the corner. Thank you

  2. Like you said over the years we collect allot of STUFF that at one particular moment we just had to have. That is what commerce wants us to believe. Big house, multiple vehicles and all the bells and whistles to go with it. It's all a way to make you part with your hard earned dollars and keep them in business. You don't own the STUFF it owns you and the sooner more people realize that the better off they'll be. Doesn't it feel enlighting?
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. The stuff is almost gone. Garage Sale was a success. That's the capitalistic society we live in. Finding out we don't have to part take of as much of it as we think we do. Thank you
