My poor sleep deprived brain read this as "earrings"--TWICE. I was like, "how's that work?"

We are helping with a yard sale this weekend, and having one later this month.

We are having one this weekend! I am so excited. usually my yard sales are last minute things when the neighbors have thiers... I end up with one little table of stuff after running around the house. The first year of the last minute one day yard sale got me $30, the second $50.

This time I have loads of stuff, have been preparing for about a month. We will ahve it set up two days. The kids are getting rid of about 1/2 the toys! I let them choose what to get rid of, to make it easier on them (and me : )

Serenetabbie: Imagine that! we're both having yard sales!!! I only managed to get Annaleee to willingly part with 4 items. Aidan couldnt see his way out of his area and he DOES not want to part with anything.

It's 11:10 I have priced a bunch of stuff and have more to do. I MAY get some of it put out tonight or get up real early. I have to anyway- I'm going to work at 8:30 and will be back at 11:00. My freind is going to be here bright and early to help

Good lUck!

: Hey Lauress! How's it going? I am heading out as soon as I finish my coffee It's 8 am here, been up since 6:30 finishing up. The sale is supposed to start at 9, but you know there are always early birds.

Well... it wasnt all that great for us. My dh sold this giant 'tool box' and made like a hundred but besides that my friend and I only sold a few small things. Yea, then theres the set of out-door furniture that came from my inlaws that we're holding for another friend. She will buy it buy that wouldnt be our $$. I put some of the stuff back in boxes to try again another day, and I'm heading to the Good will in a minute with the rest.

Oh well, at least my freind and i got to hang out a bit!

Mine was pretty bad too. I made $5 We only had 3 people stop! I think the weather here kept a lot of people away, it was overcast, windy and cool all morning. I am going out in the Am to check the signs, hang new ones at a few other spots and will try again tomorrow! It's supposed to be nicer weather.

Okay, I'm happy to say that the outdoor furniture that we sold for the inlaws was really advantageous to us since they 'donated' it towards our family.
I'll have to try the good will tomarro since when i got there they were closed and dont take drop-offs after hours. My car is stuffed with boxes and bags so thats a good thing.

Wow, well that is great Laura! So you got to keep the cash for holding the furniture? Awesome!

I tripled my sales today... to $15 $7 went to DS and $2 to DD for sale of thier items, and I keep the rest (Whoo hooo, don't let me spend it all at once).

I found out from a neighbor who stopped by that the street above us (one of the 5 in the whole town) will have a group yard sale on the 24th. Since I have everything tagged and ready to go, we will just throw everything back out again then
