Garage Sale Prep

Thursday, August 27, 2009

I'm gearing up for a garage sale on Saturday - boy do I have a lot of "Stuff". Of course some will go to the garage sale, but what I really need is a big barrel to sell burn stuff in... LOL. Way too much paperwork from too many years ago - with today's technology do we really need all this stuff? I need to look up how long I have to keep stuff.

On the good note - walked earlier, did Jazzercise at home today, my buddy came over and took a few garage sale items she was interested in - less to put out - Yeah! So, plenty of exercise going on. Been up and down the stairs about 30 - 40 times already. And I'm not done by any means.

So - I'm taking a break, drinking some water and it's back to sweating and sorting.

Enjoy your day!

    garage slaes are alot of work and my hat goes off to you. Yesterday I worked in the garage attic and probably lost 5 pounds sweating. How is the sale of your house going. My son is trying to sell to houses and it does not look good.

    I wanted to do a garage sale for all the stuff we no longer use but is too good to toss out but I was too lazy. Then I took tons of stuff to Goodwill. Then I learned about a thing called "Bakersfield Freecycle" where you offer your things to others and you can find things that they have that you want. Now I put my stuff on line and if you say to pick up quickly, you rest, they come and take the things you've offered sometimes in an hour and you feel relieved. It's a great feeling to quickly de clutter your home while letting someone else get some use out of it. Some people just arrange for someone to come get it, put it in the driveway and you don't even need to stay home to wait for them. I love it.

    I did a major yard sale several years ago, what a monumental task! So I think I know how you must be feeling.

    When I moved to Edmonton 3 years ago, my sister and I said we would have a yard sale come summer, but the next summer, her son had cancer so of course the yard sale was the last thing on anyone's mind. Last year I ended up in the hospital, so again no yard sale. This year, her son is getting married (yes, the same one - he has recovered and is still in remission, praise be) and the wedding is tis Saturday. We are catering the luncheon, and the brides' family is looking after the evening reception - plus her daughter came up from Utah for a visit earlier this summer so the summer is gone, and no prep made for a yard sale.

    How can you tell, we really are not into having a yard Sale?

    I don't know about where you live, but in Canada, if anything relates to tax returns, the average time to keep stuff is 7 years, but if it is not used on income tax returns, you can throw it out whenever you are comforatable doing so (after any warrenties have expired of course)

    Have a great day, and enjoy your yard sale!
