We’re (hopefully) down to two more week-end garage sales. We’ve been busy trying to sort stuff. It’s the little things that will kill you!
We’ve been putting together boxes of little things to be sold all together. That’s worked well on some of Al’s tools, so we’re doing it with other things, like cans of spray paint, insecticidal soap, garden tools, kitchen utensils, and any kind of thing that can be grouped together in a box. I’m trying to keep like things together, but I usually end up throwing in whatever I find. Most of this stuff isn’t worth much by itself, but it has some value to other people and I hate to just throw away good stuff. This way, someone else gets the use of these items, and best of all…they take it with them and save us a trip to the dump!
I went through my kitchen drawers yesterday and for the life of me, I can’t understand why I have so much silverware….but not a complete set that matches! How did that happen?
We still haven’t heard anything on the buyers loan. The last we heard is the bank wanted some additional financial info from them. I guess the fact that they haven’t denied the loan is a good thing.
The Realtor said the buyers are interested in some furniture and once the loan gets approved, they would make arrangements to come see it again. I guess that means they are in town? The problem with that is, we don’t want to wait until the last minute to see what they want. Of course if their loan doesn’t get approved, we won’t need to rush selling furniture. There is a lot of furniture that we could easily live without, even if we need to move back into the house. We want to give them the opportunity to buy the stuff, but we don’t want to pass up any sales. It would certainly be easier for us if they bought the stuff…especially the heavy items. I had intended on putting more items on Craig’s List this week-end….but now I don’t know.
This is getting old. I want to be done!
