Sold Out!

Last weekend we had a yard sale at John's parents' house because they live on a main road and we thought that we would get lots of customers. We got plenty of customers but even after sitting out there for 2 days in a row, we didn't make as big of a dent in all of stuff that we had hoped to. Despite having lots left, we made $170!

We decided to do it all over again this weekend at our house just because we already had all of the stuff priced and throwing it out in another yard sale seemed more logical than putting it away. Boy were we right! Our yard sale opened up on Friday morning and within 5 minutes we made $150!!! Our brand new Pack and Play (that we bought for Bailey, only to have her hate it) and baby swing went first thing that morning and after that, we were satisfied. However, much to our surprise, we went on to more than double our earnings throughout the next 2 days! I'm excited about the money but I'm even more excited to have all of this space back in my house.

Even though we made lots of money over the last few weeks, it's safe to say that I don't want to have another yard sale for a very long time. Man alive, it was A LOT of work and exhausting, too. It will be at least another year before I'm even remotely ready to do it again!
