This past weekend we participated in a garage sale with 22 others from our Young Marrieds Sunday School class. We had SO MUCH JUNK! It's incredible--we had a garage sale this same weekend last year, and Joel and I still hauled 2 car/truckloads of our stuff to the sale. We had about 16 tables and 4 clothing racks full of stuff (not just Joel and I, everyone). And here's the thing: most of us have been married 5 years or less--where do we get all this junk???
We even included a bake sale--which went over very well. We did quite well at the sale. Joel and I made much more than last year (but still a modest amount), but our sale in all brought in $2000! At the end of the sale Saturday, we still hauled away 2 truckloads and a mini-van load full of stuff that didn't sell. One advantage of having these sales is that we get to get new clothes from other people in our class. I brought home 10+ shirts, skirts and pants to wear. It's like having a whole new wardrobe!
