Have you ever gotten rid of tons of things and felt very accomplished? Well thats how I was feeling yesterday afternoon.
ON the spur of the moment my sisters, my mom and myself decided to have a yard sale. We started by putting tons of stuff by the front door. Here is how I get rid of things. I ask myself-
-would I miss this_________ if I got rid of it? NO. Probably not.
-Is it doing me any good sitting in the back of my closet/ downstairs? NOpe!
It also helps a lot to take a pile of stuff you can't decide about and put them in a box. Then hide them in your attic or some place you rarely use. If you start needing that thing more often, you should probably keep it. If you forget about it, sell it. Use the money for something you need more, or save it.
One thing that a lot of people get confused about is saying "next time we move we need a bigger house with more storage space." The truth is people, that you need to get RID of all that stuff so that you are scrounging around for one more space in your closet.
Getting rid of things puts a lot of stress off of you and cleaning isn't nearly as hard.
OK, back to the yard sale-
Next we put everything in nice and neat piles putting tags on things. We got up bright and early to sell some stuff!! So refreshing! We ended up making a lot more money than we expected. (that means we actually sold a lot of stuff!) Whatever we didn't sell was taken straight to Goodwill. (I am so glad we have a place to dump old junk in!;)
My grandma's 80th birthday is today. We have been cleaning, and decorating. The food is going to be spectacular!!
Carmel pound cake, cucumber sandwiches, crab dip, vegetables, fruit, and AhHHHH so much more!
I decorated with Japanese lanterns, and flowers. (the theme is a garden party) We are hoping that the weather will cooperate!
