The neighborhood had a huge yard sale yesterday. I decided to participate at the last minute, and made several trips down (and up) the steep driveway with a big bunch of the stuff that’s been gathering dust in the garage. Several people stopped in – maybe half walked away with something. I pretty much gave the stuff away, especially the kid’s toys.
I ended up ahead by a little, but I bought a bunch of stuff, too. Everything I bought ended up being from our next-door neighbors.
The best part was that they placed our kitchen table and chairs, and I bought the one they were going to sell. Big improvement! I’ve been waiting for years to get rid of that set. Yay!
I also got a big whiteboard and a big oscillating fan for John.
For Ben, a little fan.
For me -
An adjustable table/stand thingie.
AND a vacuum cleaner to replace the one that’s been giving me grief.
AND sushi dishes.
AND a hallway rug.
AND oh! clothes! Several outfits! Gorgeous stuff!
So I’ve made the first cut into the garage project. There’s a nice slice of stuff that’s gone now.
Today, I’m sore from all the hauling and climbing – but it was worth it.
I’ve got a ton of other work to do today, though – so I’d best get back to it.
