We have been cleaning out the house and that prompted the idea of having a yard sale, That is not so unusual, What is more unusual is the wide assortment of items I am pricing for the sale, We have swords, two wheel chairs, two walkers,wedding flowers, stuffed animals and clothing from my skinny days in between days and fat days, Kids clothes and golf clubs, Not to mention a computer tower and pretty everything else in between including furniture,

It finally happened tonight that I was buried alive in yard sale items and I mean that literally, I now know exactly how many boxes of clothing you can stack and it is three and not four, My sons and daughter said they knew I was ok from the language coming from under those boxes that would make a Marine blush, The punks had the nerve to think it was funny, Then the pet rabbit managed to escape from his cage and start running laps in the living room evading capture, His hiding place of choice turned out to be under the hutch in the dining room with the yard sale crap stacked in front of it, After carefully moving the boxes we managed to coax him out with some fresh cilantro. Then my granddaughter realized she had dropped her mom's cell phone in one of the boxes, Fortunately the phone was not dead and a phone call located it in the last box I priced, Quentin made the remark that tonight was straight out of I Love Lucy, Actually it was typical of us trying to do anything as a family, My oldest son had quit pricing and laid down on the sofa and my granddaughter Christina put a ten cent price tag on him, He was not amused, Everyone else was, She said it was ten cents because he was not working, He did get the hint and got back to work,

I will be glad when this sale is over and done, the left overs donated and life returns to what passes for normal around here, I am never having another yard sale in my lifetime,

Delightful read, greenie for ya I thought the avalanche of boxes was funny also Some of those things like swords might be better on CL. That one item for a dime might be a bit over priced So is the sale happen right now, this weekend?

Never say never...I've said that after the last 3 garage sales I've had. I'm hoping to do only one more and that will be holiday items sometime this October. I've quit collecting anything. Sorta takes the fun outta thrift shops 'n auctions. We went to an auction this morning and I bought a sweeper for my daughter...her request as theirs died. I paid a whole $9.00 for an upright Dirt Devil.

Yeah, I can imagine the circus of setting up a garage sale. I always have to wonder where all the crap came from in the first place!

I guess ten cents is better than 'MAKE OFFER'...horizontal teenagers doesn't go for much in that position...lol.

Good luck though...hope you make a lot from your sale!

yard sales can be fun and profitable but a real hassle with getting things together,pricing things then haggling and boxing the rest for donations,

Actually the yard sale was washed out by torrential rains, So we have moved it to the local flea market next weekend where we will be under s shelter, More traffic and should mean more money,
