yard sale

    i love a good yard sale. i love the thrill of the hunt. finding something for nothing. seeing how much I can buy for a mere $10. i love it. i love spring and summer for the abundance of yard sales that can be found here in good ol' lancaster county.
    so i thought since i love yard saling so much i would help my mom as well as get rid of some of my stuff and have a yard sale this year. it was a lot of hard work and at the end i made a whopping $36...true it was rainy, i gave stuff away, and priced items low... but i kind of was left thinking is it worth it? when i loaded almost everything i brought back into the minivan i really had to wonder.
    after donating the leftover stuff i am now five trash bags fewer in clothes and a few boxes less in knicknacks and toys which does feel good. memories were made and the kids loved the whole experience. so it was good....but i think i will stick to the thrill of the hunt. much less work and more fun!

absolutely. the thrill of the hunt is the best part, although my husband tries to keep me accountable in the accumulating department...if i bring something in, then i must take something out. :)i think i had the better deal this weekend, by sending a small amount of my stuff to my inlaws yard sale, and LEAVING, and they sold most of it, and what they didn't they delivered to goodwill. yeeee-haaaa. here's to the weekend. :) mis.
