There are two really popular times for garage sales in my area, and it might just be the same for you as well. When? Spring and Fall. In particular, during weather that is not too cold, and not too warm, since those climates tend to make it impossible to enjoy the task of either running or visiting garage sales.
I’ve spent the past week or so, sorting, organizing, cleaning and planning for a garage sale I am hoping to have next month. I forgot how much work is involved to get one ready as it has been a couple of years since my last one. It also makes me sad to realize how many things we have accumulated in that short time period that must now go. Our “stuff” is taking over our lives, and if I am vowing to live a more simple life, than I need to vow to remove all this clutter and STUFF (because really that is all it is) from our lives.
I have written HUNDREDS of articles over the years on organizing your items, sorting through stuff, getting rid of unwanted junk and hosting garage sales. I plan to share with you along the way, what I am doing and how it is going. Cross your fingers, but we are hoping to walk away with a whole lot of money at the end of this sale. I’ll show you how as I am going.
What are garage sales like in your neck of the woods? Do you enjoy hosting or would you rather visit one looking for treasures?
