Listen to me my friends... no really, really listen. I want every one of you to go into a drawer, cupboard, closet or pile in your house right now and choose one thing to get rid of. Toss it. Yup toss it out. Unless you know you are going to actually take a pile to a charity or have a pickup scheduled already you are going to toss it in the trash or recycle bin. Trust me. Nobody wants your stuff. You don't even want it. Then you know what. You are going to do the same thing next week. Choose something and remove it from your home. Keep doing this week after week. You will thank me for this wisdom one day when you are going to move.
Garage sales are usually a total waste of your time and energy. We carried so much stuff down the stairs and outside. Lots of it was heavy. We were sweating like waterfalls. We were exhausted before we even started.
We sold a bit of stuff but it really wasn’t worth it. Not worth our energy. Not worth our time. Not worth the frustration. Not worth the jerk who looked up our address online and phoned the house the day before to see what kind of stereo equipment we were selling. He then showed up 25 minutes early on a sale that specifically said do not come early and wanted to scope out the stereo equipment. I told him to get out of the driveway and wait until 9:00 like everyone else had to. When his buddy walked up at ten to nine and said let’s go in my husband heard him say…”no…she yelled at me”. Lol.
Well my friends. There you have it. My advise. My wisdom. My experience. Purge that house one piece at a time. Start now and when you have to move some day you will not have to entertain the insanity of a garage sale.
