Garage Sale for Utah

We had a garage sale this weekend...we have never had one before, so it was a new experience for us. We did great! Megan had some of her jewelry outside and she sold a few pieces. We earned enough money to pay for our gas to get to Utah and back...so we are planning a trip out there in October. It feels so nice to be rid of a bunch of stuff we didn't need anymore. When it was all over I packed up what was left in the back of the van and took it to Goodwill. What a lovely feeling to let it go.....

Oh I love gargage sales. We do one every year. It is such a great feeling to get rid of stuff and make money at the same time. Such great times!

Yay-I'm excited your coming to Utah. The other day I was wondering when you might come. Hope we can see each other while you are here.

What a great reason for a garage sale! Maybe you could time it so that you are here for a Balmoral GNO?!

I love to rid myself of stuff...we don't have the patience for doing a garage sale ourselves, but we make a lot of donations to DI throughout the year. My children know that every summer and again right before Christmas, they'd better have a pile of stuff to say good-bye to.

On the flip side, everytime I take a load to DI, I am discouraged by how much "stuff" we have that we don't use or need. Consumerism at its best unfortunately.

That's awesome! I hope to see you, too! Doesn't it feel so good to get rid of some things sometimes? It has been far too long since I've gone through our stuff! I think you've inspired me to do it again! (And, believe me, Matt will thank you!)
