Although it was like pulling teeth, I forced my kids to go through all their stuff, or crap as I call it, and pull out what they wanted to try and sell in our garage sale. They ended up with piles everywhere and in the end, they did great. For a dollar here and three dollars there, they ended up netting over $500 in the sale, not too shabby! They sold bikes, scooters, clothes, electronics, games, toys and more. As they say, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure, right.
It seemed as though they got rid of alot of crap around the house and they were even able to make some room in the garage at the same time. BUT, a few days later when I got a burst of energy, I decided to go through their crap to see how well they really did. I ended up spending about 4 hours just in their bedrooms, the family room and the office. I didn’t even have time to get into the garage. And we all know that when moms clean up, it’s a bit different than when the kids clean up. I kid you not that I stuffed another 7 garbage bags full of crap, crap, and more of their crap. I was on a roll and wasn’t going to stop until I went through everything. It’s clear that they just picked off the top without digging in too deep. The funny thing is, they won’t even know any of the stuff I took is missing. The poor little saps could have made another $500 if they were smart!
