yard sale success!

Good morning.
I've just returned from cleaning the Salon.
It's a wet rainy morning.
Fortunately, yesterday I made it through the yard sale with only a few sprinkles here and there.
Here's a pic near the start of the sale.....
I had 6 tables full of stuff and numerous boxes more. Then a whole bunch of larger items I spread out on the gravel area next to the driveway.
When we packed up what was left at the end of the day, I was 40% over what I had hoped to get.   :-)
We kept 2 boxes of things I think I can sell in the next sale if I redo the prices, and the rest we bagged up and I took it in to the dumpster at work this morning. I'm always amazed at the stuff people buy. I would guess nearly 75% of the stuff I sold I would have easily thrown away. Remember the portable decking I tore out on the back patio? I sold all that in the sale!
Anyway, we got rid of a lot of stuff! Our next and last sale when we sell the house should be a bit more manageable.  :-)
Now time to go and do our usual Monday running.


  1. Glad that your sale was a success! It's fun watching your road to retirement. We'll see you guys in LV!


  2. Must have been real junk if you didn't want to donate it.
    Enjoy your weekend!
