Made it Easy on Myself

We love neighborhood yard sales in our neck of the woods. Not only do you get to offer up your trash as treasure for someone else but you get to hang out and gab with everyone while doing so. And hopefully, when all is said and done, you've carved out a bit more breathing space in the house and earned enough profit to swing by Chipotles for dinner (which can then be noted in your menu book under the heading of Family Fun!)

The only thing I don't like about yard sales is pricing the items. First there's the quandary as to what something is worth, then there's the effort needed to attach all those hundreds of little stickers, and finally on the big day comes the brain challenge of  tallying the items in each sale. 

This year, however, I decided to make it easy on myself.  No stickers. No awkward equations. No big finances. Instead, everything goes for 50 cents! Take three and get one free. Want the lot? No offer shall be refused and we'll even help you load your car. This should be easy breezy and oodles of fun!
