We’ve been trying to figure out the best way to give rid of a lot of smaller things that won’t fit in the motor home when we start to travel.
We’ve sold a few larger things on Craig’s List and E-Bay, but there are
just so many small things that I hate to just trash or give to Goodwill.
It's been too hot to even consider a garage sale, but the fact that we live in a small town and
in the country makes having a garage sale even more difficult.
I hate the thought of going through all the work to put stuff out, and either
no one comes, or no one buys anything and we have to put all the stuff back. Our garage is full of with the boat, riding mower, golf cart and yard equipment and tools. Anything not sold would have to be pushed aside and it's awfully dusty there.
I have been against renting a storage shed. I did not want to endi p leaving town with a
bunch of stuff in a storage shed. When we leave town, I want to take everything
with us…and I don’t want “everything” to be that much stuff!
I got to thinking that maybe renting a storage shed on a month to month basis
might work for garage sale items. We could start taking sale items there now and getting them of the house. I keep trying to clean but I have so much stuff that needs to be sold that it's difficult. I find myself just moving stuff around. If we rented a storage shed in town on a busier road,
maybe we could actually start selling a few things, but at least I could move some stuff out of the house. The nice thing is that what
didn’t sell could stay right there. I don’t know how many people
attend garage sales in this heat but it would be easy enough to just go out on a
Saturday and put a few signs out. We could test the waters. Of course the
cost of the storage unit would probably eat up all our profits!
I just don’t think we’d get much traffic here at the house. What do you
think about the storage shed?
