Karl and I had a very successful morning at Trader Jacks this morning (although if you ask Karl, he'll swear we were at Trader Joe's - I've given up hope on him figuring out the difference). When it was still raining at 4am I started to get nervous, but the weather ended up beautiful for us, although a bit too humid for my tastes.
We made just over $100, and got rid of nearly everything we took with us. Considering my car was packed to the absolute brim, this was no small feat! We stopped at the dumpster on the way home and got rid of about a bag full of stuff that would never find another home. I still have some books left, but I'm doubting it's even worth my time to go to Half Price with them.
As long as the weather holds next weekend, my neighbor and I will be putting some stuff out in front of our houses in a garage sale type of deal. Since I'll only have 20 feet to go, I'm planning to drag all the furniture that's left out to the front yard and hope that someone driving by sees something they like.
The house is looking awfully bare! The curtains are down, which makes everything look just that much sadder. And my pile of boxes seems to grow right before my eyes. My next plan is to split the boxes between stuff going in my car and Karl's car, and stuff that needs to go in the trailer. Then it might seem like I have enough room!
