Yardsale profits?

This past Saturday we had our yard sale and it turned out great!

We managed to get rid off 8 boxes of stuff as well as our Jumperoo! Soooo happy!

This yard sale was held at our library's annual Community Yard Sale. So we had to pay a $10 fee for each space. We've done this for 3 years now and in the past we've only gotten one space.

This time we decided to get 2 spaces and paid $20. We could have fit all of our stuff in one space and we could have even spread out and taken up a little more than one space without it being a problem. So next year, we'll definitely just do one space and save the $10.

Anyway, we ended up making $149.20! Just from selling the kids' old clothes and toys. And like I said before, we came home with 8 less boxes and without the Jumperoo! I was so happy to do that well considering it was threatening rain all morning and then it actually rained for about 15 minutes or so.

We'll be having another yard sale at my parents' house in a few weeks so we hope to make another $100 or so there. I'll keep you posted on that.

Coming up soon... hopefully later today, if I can get my act together.... I'll post pics of our project in progress.... painting and getting new flooring in our living room, kitchen and hall. Busy, busy, busy around here.
