It’s finally Sunday. And I’m still exhausted. The past two days have been exhausting but successful. I am not looking forward to work tomorrow because I would rather take another day to lay in bed and relax. Oh well…back to real life. But first, a recap of garage sale weekend!
I took Friday off from work and we had the sale Friday and Saturday, 8-2. I had everything mostly labeled in the garage Thursday night ready to move outside Friday morning. Jammed. Packed.
Friday morning I was up at 6am and was out putting up signs. I was so stressed about the signs, about where to put them, and then that morning I just got it done. Tip: just bring a hammer and take existing nails out of the telephone poles and reuse them to hang your sign. I also used foam board to make the signs because they don’t bend and held up a lot better to the morning dew.
I dragged everything out and just sat back and let the people come.
People came in waves both days (we probably sold more big stuff Friday and smaller stuff Saturday) and if someone made an offer, I usually took it. I just wanted the stuff gone and the way I saw it was it’s money I didn’t have yesterday and that’s a little more room in my house.
We made about $300-$350 overall, but it was split between 4 people, me, Kev, my mom, and my stepmom, because we all had stuff that was out to sell.
So much work but so worth it in the end!!
Have a great Monday!!
