Hoorah! I made more than enough money at my garage sale on Saturday to pay for a new pair of shoes, maybe even two.
The sale officially ran from 9am to 4pm, we ended up setting up early and going from 8:30-2:30. I had two friends who brought items to sell, that way it made the sale look bigger and brought in more interest. I ended up selling all the large items I wanted except for an old desk. The desk ended up getting picked up by a junk man, I didn’t want to carry it back to basement and there was zero interest in it all day.
I made much more money than I thought I would, but none of it was my doing. I am not a salesman, but my friend is a natural. She hawked our wares like they were gold and was very successful in getting us good prices for our items. I think she should rent herself out.
I was a little short on money for the next three weeks and this helps. Payday is Thursday, but this is the check the mortgage comes out of so sometimes it gets a little tight. I am working my way, hopefully with the help of YNAB, to have an extra month’s cushion, but it will take me some time to get there.
