The Happiest Yard Sale!!!! Guess what was so rewarding better than Money

Saturday, June 08, 2013

We had our yearly yard sale in our village. I had a 2 huge tables . One table was full of my Mom's books she is 84 & an avid reader. The table had over 100 books soft cover & hard cover read one time. Books I bought for Mom for Christmas. Mom loves the Christian inspired romance books. I put free on the one table of books, I was so happy & so was Mom because so many people were taking them some of the women said they wanted them for their own Mom & grandmother. Even the teenagers were taking them.
On my one table I had things also that were dishes & bowls curtain's sheets, I over heard their conversations & gave them to the folks, the one her daughter just moved in to her first apartment. One child was into art work I gave her all my brushes & paints her face lit up she had the biggest smile. Oh my what a feeling.
I only had one small box left. With all I gave away I still made some money, but the joy was seeing others when I told them they could have it, that was priceless better than even making money!!!

    After helping my former mother-in-law with her garage sales, all the work and cleaning and researching prices (back in the day before the Internet - in the 1980's), I long ago burned out... these days, I put things out on the driveway and say #FreeCycle or Free - take it with you etc... and it disappears! If people ask me what I want in price, I tell them to donate whatever amount they feel it is worth to their favorite charity or spiritual organization that they feel is best for them. And of course, other times I just grab a bag or two and donate it to charity.

We are given so many blessings, it just seems better to me to release what we no longer needs and let them be blessings to others! And I'm finding this attitude reinforced the more I read from FlyLady.com and her team here on SparkPeople etc. So I totally get your happiness in giving these books and paints and other things that were blessings in the lives of those who received them!!
