Raise your hand if you love garage sales! Ok, I know I am not the only goofball sitting here with my hand in the air, because garage sales are great, right? Let's see, you can get stuff you need for cheap and save a ton of stuff from languishing in a landfill for eternity. Win-Win!
If you are on the other side of the table, as I was this week there is also the benefit of green in your wallet. What better way to make money then to get rid of things you don't need by selling it to those who can put it to good use. So, this week we packed up all of Everett's old baby clothes, random gifts I have been given that I won't use, and any number of toys that the boys don't need or play with anymore. I priced them reusing old stickers we had around the house, placed them in reusable containers, and took them to my girlfriend's house so I could take part in her neighborhood sale.
We smiled at people, talked with each other, and took in money while enjoying the beautiful sunshine. We even had someone drive up to the sale on a lawn mower. Is this normal? Anyone?
So who's having a garage sale this summer? Who's getting their stuff from garage sales this summer? Any great garage sale-ing tips?
