Garage Sale

This past week end was pretty busy. My daughter Natasha, bff Theisa and my nieces Raina and Vanessa with friend Allan, and pretty girl Jordan, spent a beautiful day having a garage sale. I woke up about 5am, got ready and put out signs~ Vanessa and Allan helped me with the rest. We made a day of it~ we had some homemade bread and coffee for breakfast, and homemade pasta and pizza for lunch. I was able to check off a lot from my 'to do list'~ get rid of "stuff" (de-junk and clean my garage in the process), did a little bit of crafting, and my favorite part...have loving and bonding time with my loved ones.

I enjoy doing ( and going to) garage sales! At least once or every other year I do it. Such a great way to clean out and get rid of stuff.

It wasn't as busy as I would have wanted...we didn't have much "bigger" stuff like furnitures or kitchen appliances to sell, ( well we sold a boombox!) but we sold quite a few things. We had old cds, sunglasses, clothes and accessories, girl's golfset, lots of bags, purses and shoes, photo albums and picture frames, books and toys and many, many home decor/accessories.

That evening, it was move in day for Tasha. We spent some time with her at her apartment...a little bit more family bonding time. I miss her already!

Sunday morning, Theisa and I were still in the garage sale mood, so we continued on for a bit. Theisa got busy with jewelry making projects and organizing her supplies, got rid of some unwanted beads as well.

Around about lunch time or so, we started to pack-up. The left over stuff were all packed in bags and boxes, ready for pick up on Tuesday by Goodwill truck. My hubby took care of our food while my son Derrick helped me take off the signs down.

I love week ends like this!
