On the Purge of Something Good
Today we are hosting a garage sale. But what makes our garage sale different than most is that, well, everything is... free. Yup, we are having a FREE garage sale. Sure, we could probably list every individual thing on craigslist and maybe make a couple hundred bucks, but the problem is we have a lot of LITTLE things. Things that would sell for $5, if that, on CL. And the time it would take to sell all of our junk just isn't worth it to us. Which is why our junk has been sitting in our garage for a few years collecting dust.
We really want to clean and organize our garage and make it a functional place, so for us, unloading all this stuff and letting them go to better homes, will be a major blessing. We have 30 RSVP's coming to our free-crap giveaway, and after that I removed the posting. We don't want any fights over free stuff, now do we?
What will I be most sad to say goodbye to? I bought 2 chairs on craigslist last spring and was really excited to refinish them. Okay, I guess not really excited because they sat unfinished in my garage for a year, but still. I had a vision for them, and with a nice coat of white paint and some fun new upholstery, those chairs would have looked like
The frugal part of me keeps telling me that I should have just spent the time and listed the stuff individually, but this will make the hubby incredibly happy, and that's worth it. And I know that deep down, I would probably never get around to it, so sometimes you just have to be honest with yourself and PURGE! Even if it means giving stuff away for free :)
