What Did You Do? Wednesdays - Garage Sale Glory

You know, once I actually got started with my garage sale prep, I've kind of been in my glory.  I have truly enjoyed the organizing, the pricing, the sorting, the straightening, the WhereAreWeGoingToPutAllThisStuff decisions.  The colors make me happy too.  All the bright colors of the toys, the little girl pinks and purples, the sea of book covers....I feel pleased when I look around.

I'm content with the memories I have with each item as well.  Most of the items were more well used by our oldest daughter.  It's different with the second, isn't it?  They go right into whatever the older ones like/have.  So, maybe I remember what my oldest and I played in the time she fit into a certain outfit, or where we went, and what we did.  I recall the vast amounts of time spent doting on her in a tiny, little house far away from any family or friends, while we played with many of the toys we're now selling.  It's bittersweet, you know?

It's like Where's Waldo....could you find me in any of these pictures? No? Of course not.  I'm buried under all the other stuff I didn't post shots of. Oh,trust me. There's A LOT.  I've overflowed from the garage significantly.  If it rains, we're in big trouble.

You can also list all things for sale online on www.privategaragesale.com. It's totally free – no commissions or fees whatsoever, you get to keep all the money. It's just like a regular garage sale but runs forever.

Awe... I'm right there with you. I am giving all of the Little People stuff to my neice and I'm slowly giving the toys to friends' kids or to the school. Loads of books have been donated to the school. Giving them away slowly makes it easier on me. I know it makes it easier on my boys too. I love clearing them out, but it doesn't make it much easier.
Eventually I know the toys will all be gone. That will be a sad day.

Thanks for subscribing to my blog! I hope you enjoy it and I'm glad you liked the bug cupcakes.... even if you hate bugs. LOL!
