Make offer?!?!

Yep, our 2009 garage sale has come and gone! Whew...
It was kind of a last minute thing. I had planned to have my annual sale the first weekend in September, until it dawned on me that would be Labor Day weekend. I decided that wasn't a good idea since Justin will be on-call for work, and I wasn't sure what our family would be doing for the holiday.

So, Thursday morning I began the "running around like a chicken with its head cut off" routine, to prepare for the sale. I always pack "sale" stuff up in boxes throughout the year and keep them in the attic, but I still wanted to do a full sweep of the house (closets, drawers, cabinets, nooks, crannies) and get rid of some more clutter! I L.O.V.E. getting rid of junk! Ahhh...feels so good.

Have you seen the show on A&E, Hoarders? Oh my goodness...Justin had it on the other day and I was getting sick to my stomach watching how these people lived! If you're interested, this is a clip from the show I watched, a lady that was a food hoarder. She didn't see a problem with keeping a bag of shredded cheese that had been sitting in juices from rotten food & meats! She claimed the cheese wasn't expired, and it was in a sealed bag! Uck! Hoarding is a disease, and I really don't think the majority of these people will ever change. It's sad that they don't see a problem with living that way. I go crazy if a dirty dish sits in the sink overnight...these people let dishes sit all over the house for months!

So anyway, back on subject...I am in NO way a hoarder, but watching that might have been just the kick in the butt I needed to get rid of some junk. If it's just sitting around collecting dust, I don't need it, and it deserves a better home!

My sweet little niece, Kylie, was my AWESOME helper all day today. She loves counting money, and she's mature beyond her years, so I totally trusted her to help me add up totals and count back change. She did great! It was also fun for Barrett to have her here to play! I was excited that we made over $500.00! I'd be the happiest girl in the world if I could use that money to buy a NEW lens, but I'm sure it will be used for Bluegrass and other necessities instead.

Barrett enjoyed an early morning donut

I didn't sell my DELL 3100cn color laser printer...
So if anyone is interested, let me know! You might remember my post awhile back about having to get a new version of the printer. The 3100 still works fine, if you just need a color/black & white printer. It will occasionally make a single thin line on your printouts, but I think with a new drum, that problem might be fixed. I just have to have perfectly flawless printouts for paying clients, so it had to G-O! I'm asking $70.00 and it comes with a new black toner cartridge.

  1. I LOVE Hoarders but I get a little freaked out after I watch it. It definitely makes me want to clean but at the same time it makes me feel like I live in the cleanest house ever. :)
