I'm still here. Planning the Largest Yard Sale of the Century. Okay, not really, but it seems big to me because it's SO much work. And here's the thing: don't ever buy a house with an unfinished basement...not unless you plan to finish it RIGHT AWAY. Because it becomes the biggest (free) storage space ever and when you put things down there to store "for a little while" they multiply. Something happens down there, in the darkness, and what was once a small collection of treasures quickly becomes a huge collection of junk. And then, if you're afraid of spiders, or allergic to dust, or just plain lazy (or some combination of all three) you never go through all that stuff. Because there might be spiders! Or dust! In fact, there are spiders and dust guaranteed. Not to mention the work involved. And isn't normal everyday life work enough? So you continue to purchase treasures at other people's yard sales (some of which might occasionally find their way to said basement) while rarely having one of your own. Plus, don't even get me started on all the gear that comes with that tiny little creature known as a baby. And after three of them (babies, that is) there is a lot of gear.
This is just a very small glimpse of what I'll be selling.
Anyhoo, I've got to get rid of it. All of it!
To make room for stuff (from other people's yard sales!) like this:
What bargains have you found recently?
Oh, and if you're in the Oregon City, OR area and you want to come to my sale, just send me an email and I'll give you the location. :-)
