Well, today I was up and at 'em at five, but DD slept in until 8, so I gathered what I needed to take to dad's for sale set-up, ran to credit union to get coin and bills,but they no longer open early for summer, so I had to come back because the drive in was open, but cannot get coin through that.

Went back home and picked DD up and loaded car up for second load to take, went to dad's and spent six solid hours on my feet on that cement floor putting tables up and filling them pricing everything. Dear friend Karen showed up to help set tables up and suggest prices for me. I now have all but three tables filled and am about 3/4 done emptying boxes. IT is supposed to be thunderstorms tomorrow again..Today the sky opened up at 3pm and we had to haul everything indoors so no more work on it. Thunder and lightning... tomorrow is supposed to be the same..I will pick up balloons tomorrow and DD will make the signs so we can put them up after five tomorrow..
This is so much hard work,, I just want to get rid of it all..

No more garage sales for me until my mom dies and we need to finish clearing out that house.. It is packed and we too boxes out to sell, and filled two trash trucks with junk that could not be salvaged, a few years ago..Like 22 trash bags filled with canned food, canning jars filled wit food from the 1980's and up!! Yup.. I also already tore up five layers of old carpeting and padding in the laundry room in the basement, filled nine trash bags with nothing but empty paint cans.. Another eighteen stretch bags with old bottles, cans and junk form eh basement. Nobody can tell I even touched it, it is so bad.
I could have two garage sales just from what is in one bedroom or the sunporch!

The sale begins Friday and none too soon.

    Sounds like a lot of work ahead. Did a big move for my mom who is still with us at 97 but we moved her from a 1 bedroom apartment to a 2 bedroom trailer but the stuff ,junk ,she had saved right down to old rotten food she was going to find a use for was overwhelming. We had to get rid of so much scrapes of this and that the list was endless. That was 13 yrs ago. And she has already packed her trailer. So know what your going through. Hope you sell all you want!

    Sounds like you have quite a job ahead of you. Not a pleasant one either.

    Don't forget to put up signs to direct yard sale hunters.
