Yard Sale

by Alissa

Our neighbors decided to have a yard sale, which gave me motivation to look around our house for items we could part with.  We decided to piggyback onto their sale.  The more the merrier, right?  My kids were very excited to have a sale (I remember this anticipation as a child).  They eagerly found toys, books, and movies they no longer wanted and I helped them price their items.  Yard sales are tiring and lots of work, but I find it rewarding to see someone else find treasures in my once-cherished items.  At the end of the day, my kids were thrilled with their sales, I cleared out more stuff from the house, and we all enjoyed spending time with our neighbors.  Our unsold items are already in my car ready to drop off at the thrift store.  Yes, a yard sale can be a fun way to clear out clutter.
