bright ideas

june 8

It is yard sale weekend. 

Usually I enjoy a good yard sale weekend.  but usually I am going to the sales, not having one myself.  I am not sure what I was thinking.  It all started when I decided to get rid of my porch glider.  I thought why not try to sell it. I have a lot of other stuff I could sell.  next thing you know I picked a date and my fate was set. 

The next bright idea. Ask the neighbors to join me and have yard sales on the same days, and spilt the cost of the advertising.  Everyone thought it was a great idea.  However those who wanted to participate were all going away on the dates that were good for me.  The rest that I spoke to said they don’t have anything because they don’t keep stuff.  What a novel idea. 

So much for that bright idea was to get The husband to take care of advertising.  maybe list it on Craig’s list and put it in the paper.  I really should have known better than this.  I guess I will be having an unadvertised sale.  although I did ask the 28-year-old to make some signs.  Another thing I should know better than to do. 

My next bright idea is to have a neighbor and the 25-year-old daughter help me get everything cleaned up and priced tomorrow.  We will see how that one turns out.
