Yard Sale galore....
Moving is really hard work. And it really makes you realize that you have a ton of stuff! And you also realize that you don't want to pack and move all of this stuff. So, back in March when I was interviewing and hoping to get a job, I had a yard sale. I sold all of my first grade teaching supplies that I've been holding on to "in case I teach first grade again". I sold home decor, some furniture, and basically a little bit of everything. It was really successful and made a good chunk of money. Then in April, after I got a job offer, I started selling things online. That's more work than a yard sale, but you usually get more money that way. So I figured it was worth it. Then in May, the weekend before I moved out of my house, some neighbor girls and I had another yard sale. We made some pretty sweet signs! I wasn't as successful at that sale, but I still made out pretty good. And ofcourse, I took the unsold items to D.I. The less I have to pack and move the better!
Our sweet yard sale signs!
Multi-Family yard sale with some of my neighbor friends.
Just a glimpse of what I sold at my yard sale...or tried to sell lol!!
The beginning of the packing. Ugh! It takes forever! And it seems like you're accomplishing nothing...
I sold this sweet table. We call it the "up and down table". It's been in our family for a long time and it was sad to see it go. But I don't need it anymore, and either does anyone in my family.
I sold this great computer. It's in great condition. But I wanted to buy a laptop, so I no longer needed this desktop.
This old thing was actually in great condition. But I definitely don't need two TVs anymore. So ofcourse, I kept the flat screen and got rid of this thing.
I ended up giving this to a friend because it didn't sell. My friend ended up painting it and making it look absolutely adorable for her little girl's room. (Sorry about the poor quality picture.)
I parted with all of these awesome organizing drawers. I will have much less room in my new place, so I was trying to downsize.
I also sold this great bedroom/bathroom set. I have loved it but I'm ready for a new color scheme!
