Yard sale over

Saturday, July 21, 2012

I learned so many many things today and yesterday. When in Florida, do no yard sale in June, July, or August due to the heat. Do not take anything to sell that you like because you will be totally insulted when something cost you 45.00 and you didn't use it and then they the shoppers insulted you with a 2.00 offer and then are annoyed that you would dare say no. People just don't respect your things, as they pick them up and inspect them and then toss them aside like trash. It was way too offensive for me to deal with and I really had to just walk away from them. I have learned the lesson that it is not worth it to go to all the effort to gather things that you can live without and then then to make little to no money. Now the good part is that I ate only cheese and a hard boiled egg for lunch two days in a row. Blessings to those who have learned lessons today.

    I know what you mean.... I think I told you that's how i feel about garage sales too. Today, while I was at work, my landlady and sil came in and laid lineleum and then dd and sil cleaned up my apt., packed up all of dh's stuff into garbage bags to drop at Value Village. I feel I should go thru the stuff, but it's like you said, I value it a lot more than anyone else and knowing me I would want to keep it ..just in case..... but he didn't care enough about the stuff so why should I worry about it!

    Glad it's over and done with, hope you gave to charity whatever you didn't sell, that's what we've done before, drop it off, cuz you've already decided you could live without it, and it's really not worth the heartbreak... emoticon emoticon
