Yard Sale 2012: Bye Bye Baby

We had a "neighborhood" yard sale last weekend, which in summary consisted of 3 houses in total...ours, Insley's and Molly's.  So not so much of a neighborhood yard sale, BUT either way, it was nice to purge some of the baby stuff. It was sad to say goodbye to all the baby stuff.  I sorted through all the clothes and organized them by size, and it was a walk down memory lane for sure.

We didn't sell a ton of stuff, but it was nice to see some stuff go to new homes, and since then I've even placed a few things on Craigs List, and a few of my friends will end up taking some of the bigger things off my hands.

Two of Brad's fraternity brothers just had baby girls so I am hoping we can share some of our girl clothes with them, it will be nice to have them land in a good home, and the bigger sizes will make their way home to Northfield in the Spring for sweet Mags!!

I dread having Yard Sales, but they are such a necessary evil - getting everything together, putting it out and cleaning it up, woof, its exhausting.  We got up around 5:15am, and started setting up in the dark, it took me a good 2 hours to get everything set up, I was still setting up when the first customer arrived, and I don't think I finished cleaning up until 4:30pm - needless to say, for those hours worked, we didn't make enough, but the value to me, was in cleaning it out and at the end of the day, a Yukon XL full of stuff made its way to The Goodwill.
