~Busy Morning Had a Yard Sale~

Jacksonville, Florida
April 15, 2017 2:42pm CST
Hey everyone. This morning was busy for us here because we had a yard sale. We picked a bad weekend to do this since it's Easter weekend-we weren't thinking about that. We didn't do terrible but we didn't do great either. Oh well, another week we will try again. My husband is at work now, repairing a roof. The babies are napping and I am going to be here for a bit. =) I hope your having a good Saturday!

Glad to hear that you were able to sell some things. I am sure another weekend would be better. It is nice that you have some time to yourself to mylotting a bit.

It's been a busy Saturday around here. I've done mounds of laundry, dusted, scrubbed and vacuumed the house and my car. Now I need to get busy folding that laundry and putting it away.

@LovingMyBabies I had my last garage sale "years ago" and it was so much work that I told myself "never again".

Could be better if I could just sit here and earn over the stress of really needing to be up and cleaning the house to prepare for the holiday and everyone being here tomorrow. I do love the family time, just not the stress of preparing for it.

@marsha32 I am sure the preparing is not much fun at all. =( I'm sorry.

I would have thought there would have been lots of people out and about on a holiday but perhaps most were at family get-togethers.

@JudyEv Yeah I think most people were shopping at stores for Easter things or at egg hunts and things like that.

Well, glad you did not do too badly. Maybe in the future, you can have another yard sale that is not on a holiday weekend. Those yard sales are a lot of work.

I rested today, the first weekend of each month is always best for yard sales. I used to have them all the time and I tried every weekend of a month and I always made more money on that first one.

@andriaperry Yeah I think next time we will do it the first weekend and not a holiday weekend.

Last year we had 2 yard sales a week apart. We sold the front yard so I don't have to mow it any more and then sold the back yard to our neighbor.

We want to have a couple of yard sales this spring/summer season. We have a lot of "treasures" that we can part with. Someone was recently telling us that they were at a yard sale and the people hosting it had a "free" table and that went over really well to get rid of some of the small useless things that we put out in the sales and often don't sell. We might try that.

@LovingMyBabies I think 78 is perfect, but we really have no humidity here.
