Remember I said we would need to get rid of 1/6 of all our stuff at our garage sale?
Well, we didn’t even come close. Not only did we not make much money, but we didn’t get rid of much in terms of volume. We sold a grand total of $126.
We had an ad in the local paper, but it turns out not many people read the paper.
We had a few signs out, but not nearly enough. Lesson learned.
I was afraid being out in the country would hurt us and it apparently did.
When we had the storage lot in town, we found just putting signs on major roads brought in lots of people. The storage lot we had last fall is no longer available or we might consider doing that again.
Next week, we will have signs everywhere!
In the meantime, we are going to start loading up stuff for the trash and Goodwill. We have got to get rid of stuff, and not wait until the last minute.
We also have decided we need to drop prices and make these items “too good to pass up.”
After our sale, we went into town for a few groceries and we treated ourselves to lunch at the local country buffet. Yumm.. We had worked really hard this past week and decided we needed a good meal and then a good afternoon nap.
Unfortunately our nap didn’t pan out because we got a hail storm. Nothing like hail hitting your roof to wake you up. I’m reminded why we prefer Florida weather. I hate these strong winter and spring storms!
Today we’re going to the local diner and have breakfast. We went there one day last week and I had a wonderful breakfast with country ham. I’ve been wanting more country ham ever since. After breakfast, we’re going to get things together for a run to Goodwill tomorrow. “Stuff” is going to leave the house today!
