Weekend's over

No photos this post, just wanted to say that we survived the weekend! We got through another Fri/Sat garage sale. Our second in a month's time. I can say that I don't see any garage sales in my near future! They are so much work!!

I need to upload the photos from my camera to show it, but we had so much stuff. I wish I would have taken photos of the last one too. There was very little traffic this time around. I'm not sure if it was because at the last one school was still in session and people were still in town. Perhaps it was because people were saying there were TONS of garage sales everywhere and people just didn't make it all they way to our side of town?

We only did about 1/3 the sales we did at the first one too. It wasn't a bad amount, but the last one we made more than I've ever made at a garage sale. This time there were lots more people asking less for items than last time. The good thing is we got rid of some bulky items that just take up too much space and Chico made a run to Goodwill right after and took a whole Excursion full of stuff, so that feels good to not bring it back into the house.

Then yesterday I was perusing craigslist (love craigslist lately) and I found a twin bed from Ikea that I had purchased for Mateo when he was about 3. I've always wanted a matching bed for Jaxon since they share a room, but it was discontinued a long time ago. Well, much to my surprise I saw the bed on craigslist yesterday morning, called the lady and we took a quick (ha ha) trip up to the boonies of Battleground WA (about an hour & 20 minutes from our house). I'm so excited! I'll take a photo once I get it in the room.

Well, that's enough rambling for now. I need to get ready for work and get the boys ready for Boys & Girls club. Week #2 for them, hopefully they're having fun. Have a great day!

You are a brave woman! Garage sales are so much work! Since I have been packing and getting ready to move, I have been thinking about having one after we move. Then I start thinking a trip to Goodwill is so much easier!

Which Goodwill did Chico go to? J/K. Looking forward to seeing a picture of the matching beds.
