Yard Sale Update

This week we had another Moving Sale, or yard sale. I wound up making $144 which I don't think is too bad for one day. Other people had some stuff at the sale as well and they did pretty well too. It was nice getting rid of some of our extra stuff and making some extra money. After the sale we took some of the money and treated ourselves to a nice late lunch at a local restaurant. By the time we got back home we were all beat.

We're debating having one more sale before we pack everything up and donate it. It's tempting because I do still have a lot of good stuff that could bring me in even more money. It would give me a chance to get some stuff out of our storage unit and sell it too. I will be so glad when we get our house sold so we can get rid of the storage unit. Luckily I do get a nice discount on the unit, but I still hate paying for storage. I've been of the mindset that if you don't have room for it in your house you really don't need it. The only reason we even have one now is because we "decluttered" our house before we put it up for sale. Since we don't even miss a lot of the items that are in there I figure we can probably sell some of them.

Right now I am leaning towards having another sale, but I'd like to wait at least another week or two before having it. But really, after that we need to just pack up anything that's left and send it on to charity. I'm sure that by next year we'll have even more stuff to sell. Depending on where we're living at that time we may have another yard sale or we may just pack it all up and donate it. We'll have to see.

What do you do with your extra stuff? Do you have a yard sale or just donate stuff? If you do have a yard sale, do you donate the leftovers or keep them for another sale?

I hope everyone is having a nice, safe weekend. Come back Monday to see my menu plan for the week. I'm off to work on that now. I'm trying to use the slow cooker more this week to save myself some time on weeknights.

I need some of your frugal-ness to rub off on me! Great ideas here.
