Rummage Sale

garage-sale_~k5616302 My neighbors and I are planning a neighborhood rummage sale the beginning of June, and I am in the midst of gathering and washing items that I want to sell. Have been going thru the basement and now need to get into closets, cubbyholes and the garage attic. Trying to get my husband to go thru his things but he is just sure that everything little thing he has, he either needs or will certainly use in the future.  (uh huh…..)

I don’t have that problem. If I haven’t used it in a while or have no further interest in it, I don’t have a problem either selling or donating it.

I’m not as into houseplants as I used to be – so out goes my collections of pots, stands, hangers, tools, lights and other items. I will be happy for the space. DSCN1566


I find some kitchen items that I don’t want, an older hotplate that I never use,  drinking glasses that no longer fit in my new quest to have only clear (looks better thru my glass cabinet doors),DSCN1563


and oh those zillions of coffee cups that somehow accumulate – out lots of them  go, so I only have 6, the amount of cup holders I have.DSCN1564


I’m not one for selling clothes, maybe only if they still had the tag on, and I don’t have any of those. I usually “use-up” my clothes pretty badly. So no, no clothes.

My son will bring over some of his outgrown little girls’ clothing and that always goes over well. Also toys.

My sister will bring lots from her mother in law’s broken-up housekeeping and hopefully she will do well with that.

Haven’t really been involved in one of these for many years – and haven’t really stopped at one either, so hopefully I won’t overprice or underprice anything. I guess it’ll be trial and error.

Talking to neighbors, they have tvs, furniture, lamps, clothing, outdoor game equipment etc. to sell – so we should be pretty varied.

Chance to make some extra money and clear out unneeded items. Whatever is left we will donate. Should be fun!


Just look how excited these 2 are!!DSCN1560



  1. I need to do the exact same thing! It always feels so good to clean out things you don't use. Hope the rummage sale goes well!


  2. That sounds like a lot of work! Good luck on the sale. I am sure your two furbabies are exhausted from all the planning this type of project requires.
    Have a wonderful day!
