Why a Rummage Sale is like Weight Loss
Day 1 of our first ever rummage sale went awesome. I really had no idea what to expect as I decided to go for it this week. We've had tons of stuff accumulating in our basement. It was amazing to clean it out and actually see the basement floor once again. Our trash treasures brought in $275!
Why didn't we ever have a rummage sale before? Well, it's a lot of work! The first step was the hardest. Deciding to do it. Once I started gathering stuff and pricing it, that was easy. The sale itself has been fun. Hearing my 8 yr old announce after each sale how much we made was priceless. The kids were having a blast playing with toys we hadn't played with for years. It was a great day and we were totally exhausted. Today, has been quiet, but it's a beautiful so we are still enjoying the weather.
It's that first step that's always the toughest. Weight loss, rummage sales, whatever it may be, taking the first step is always the challenge.
Sadly, no one has wanted to buy any of my WW stuff ;)
