Tomorrow is garage sale day. Ron is bringing home some tables this morning so we can start setting up. I’m not sure what kind of expectations to have. I’m hoping for wild success. But I’ve learned to keep my expectations kind of low so I don’t get disappointed. So, we are gonna set it up and see what happens!
This was supposed to be the garage sale in Ohio that didn’t happen in June. Our stuff has been piled up in the garage in boxes and bags since then. I can’t imagine how empty the place will be after the sale tomorrow when all the leftovers are sitting in a big semi truck trailer in the Goodwill parking lot. I might even be able to get my car in the garage. OK, that’s probably pushing it a bit. But I’m ready to get it all out of there. If there are a few coins jangling in my pocket that’s all the better.
The best yard sale we ever had was right before we moved from Joelton to Nashville 5 years ago. We made $700. It was beautiful. Oh and we also sold our house that day. Well, it wasn’t exactly that day but we put our For Sale By Owner sign in the front yard. About 15 minutes later we had a couple ask about it. They were asking for the man’s parents who were moving to the area to be close to them (about a mile away). They asked to see the house. Have you ever had a yard sale? Have you ever been packing to move at the same time? Then you know what the inside of the house looked like. And we still SOLD it!!!! It was a God thing.
This time will be a little different. I’d still like to make the $700 but this time the house will NOT be for sale. But we do have a home gym and a piano………
