We spent a good month sorting through the house for the yard sale. I went through every cabinet, closet, nook, and cranny twice. If an item hadn’t been used in the last year it went in the yard sale pile. We then spent 2 days pricing everything….dear lord there was a lot of stuff!
Saturday morning we are up at 6 a.m. to set up. The weather started out with a bit of drizzle, but didn’t full out rain. After everything was set up, Emma and I headed off to the 4H fundraiser and left the guys to tend the sale.
There was a steady stream of people all morning. Emma and I came back around noon and worked the sale for the next 3 hours. The above photo was taken about half way through the sale. At 3 p.m. there was still a lot of stuff left so we packed Alan’s Tahoe up and he took it all to goodwill.
All that work and we made a whopping $190. Can I say it was so NOT worth it. Not even a little bit No more sales for us…everything can go to freecycle.com or Goodwill.
Do you bother with yard sales??? Do you think it is worth it?
