Call us crazy, but we had another yard sale this past weekend.
My brother just purchased a home, and the previous owner had left some things behind. In an effort to get rid of the things he didn’t want of hers, and to make a little extra cash for remodeling purposes, the sale was more for his sake than anyone else’s. However, I was beyond thrilled to cash out on a few more pieces of “junk”, as was my mother.
We took a couple of months to get everything together, as we weren’t sure if there would be another yard sale in our near future. I mean, after all, we can’t have much left to purge, right?
Wrong. Again, my mother’s dining room (the storage space for our to-go items until the day of the sale) was overflowing with our trash….er, treasures. We couldn’t believe it! The layers just keep falling away with each new purge.
In total, the three of us made over $1,300.00! I pocketed $500 of that myself. Not bad for the millionth yard sale we’ve hosted. Haha!
I’ve noticed this time around, I’m a lot less afraid of giving up the more sentimental items. There are still a few things I will want to digitize for memory’s sake, but it’s becoming a lot easier to let the hard stuff go. It feels amazing.
I had a few items out for sale that most people would probably never consider getting rid of, and someone even asked, “You don’t have a sentimental bone in your body, do you?”
Maybe, but it’s just a teeny one. 🙂
