Garage Sale Indecision

Our town is having one of those city-wide garage sales next weekend and although I haven't officially signed up, I am hemming and hawing over whether or not to haul stuff out for sale.

The pros:
1) Clear out the stuff
2) Make a bit of money
3) Lots of buyers making the rounds

The cons:
1) No time to get ready
2) Everyone else is selling that day
3) Bad guys casing out the place

Big J thinks I should wait until we have more time to prepare and for a date with fewer sellers. Being a bit of a procrastinator, I have a feeling the garage sale date will come and go and I will be thinking "maybe next year".

I do occasionally like to check out garage sales, as does my Mom, and in fact my Mom has a lovely collection of brass knick knacks many of which are garage sale finds. You never know what you might find.

Someone in our neck of the woods found this at a garage sale:

For the paltry sum of $100, this person walked away with 2 paintings which may be valued at over $200,000 !!!  Here is the news story: Garage Sale Find.

Being a thrifty person I don't like to shell out a lot of money for anything.  Big J and I were talking about this and decided these happy accidents would never happen to us because we would hesitate on the price and everyone knows about he who hesitates.

    1. Isn't it? Wouldn't that be a fabulous surprise? Thanks for visiting and commenting.

  2. Our city wide garage sale was this very weekend. I didn't get out and go to any because the weather (Kansas) didn't seem to suggest it was a very good idea. I say do a garage sale on your own schedule.
