Garage Sale

It happened again....another urge , except this time it's not painting or decorating. This times it's the urge to purge! I'm having a garage sale. What was I thinking!?!?!?! I started the sale today and have only had 4 people come so far......I guess that's what happens when you live out in the country : ) I just hope stuff sells so I don't have to pack it all back up and drag into the basement.

I have decided to part with alot of things that are just wasting space. Alot of that stuff is baby clothes and other baby items. It kind of makes me sad...getting rid of the things my kids used when they were babies : ( I would eventually like to have another baby but with the possibility of a move and building a house...having another right now would be soooo difficult....I know I couldn't be the help to my husband that I would need to be at a time like that. So, I'm going to get rid of these things( that is if they sell) and pray for God to provide things for any future children we might have.

Next weeks plan is putting things back away that haven't sold and clean and declutter my basement. I'm actually excited and can't wait to get it all done. I want the house to look as clean and as inviting as possible before we put it up for sale. It may take a little longer then we would like to put it on the market but my husband maybe doing some home improvement projects that we feel would add to the value of our home and make it more likely to sell for what we hope it sells for.

My 10 year old daughter headed off to Bible camp on Monday morning. It's so strange not having her here but I know she must be having a blast and I'm so glad for her. I just can't wait to pick her up on Saturday. I can send her emails and she can send snail mail but I can't talk to her unless there is an emergency : ( The camp does have a blog though, where they post pictures of the going ons during the week. I got to see my sweetie in the pictures. As a family we were all sitting around the computer trying to find her in the should of seen's like we don't know what to do without her : ) Well in a few more weeks my oldest two head off for camp.......that's going to feel really strange.

Well that's all I have time for today. I need to get dinner started....which is burgers on the grill. I already made pasta salad to go with the burgers. Have a great day!

Hey there. I just put up a new post. Wow, huh? :)

Hey, I was thinking, what doesn't sell, you could send to the Goodwill or Salvation Army or something and use it as a tax write off...? Just a thought and maybe a way to get it out and not have to drag it back down to your basement. We do that a lot because we live in the country too and have never had a garage sale out here. It does help when it comes to tax time.

Hope you sell lots!

Whatever you do, don't haul it back inside!

Good will or a free sign or take some of it to church to give away.

Call someone you know who's hard up and tell them to come pick up anything they want for free.

Just don't reclutter!

I'm going to have yet another sale next Friday. Another level of clutter to purge!
