We've been getting ready for another big yard sale. It's been a pretty constant pace of gathering and pricing and today will be all about getting it organized, scrounging up tables to put stuff on. I'm certain that people with wads of money will be on my driveway waiting for the garage doors to open up!
I had a yard sale for Becky about a month ago and raised $250 to go toward her big trip. We had several big ticket items which made it go faster. That yard sale was at Becky's old house in Las Cruces, NM. It couldn't have been timed better as she was moving to her newer, smaller apartment and needed to get rid of extra furniture, etc.
This yard sale is being held in El Paso at my house. My boyfriend recently moved out of town and donated several items to the sale and my oldest daughter has also put in a bunch of items. We have enough to almost fill one side of a two-car garage.
This will be my last big fundraising effort that requires actual physical exertion! Since I have Lupus, physical activity is often very challenging for me. I'm definitely feeling the effects of all the exercise I've gotten getting ready for the sale. That's how I came up with the idea of using the internet to help me raise $ for Becky. I can sit and be on the internet all day...or even lie in bed like I am right now!
Wish us luck!
