I've never had a garage sale and don't want to attend them either, not my thing at all~
"If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay."
"Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until this point is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be. Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses."
I have had a few yard sales, but they require a lot of work and preparation. BUT I do enjoy going to them.

The few times I've held a yard sale it was because we were moving, and often not through out own choice. Although I have some happy memories associated with them, they mostly make me feel sad, so I don't go to them much any more.
I have alot of extended family hold garage sales, and go out certain weekends of the month. They find great deals in hand me down stuff in kids' clothes and toys....stuff for the grandkids. I don't have the patience to even look the racks at department stores let alone drive around town looking for treasures.

My cousin and I had one in an effort to sell some of our aunt's things after she passed away. It was a lot of work and you have to look for people trying to take things without paying for them. I never had another one. I enjoy going to them from time to time.

It was one of my mother's regular pastimes....going to and having garage sales. She'd have one annually and go to several every weekend, bringing home trinkets and things for her kitchen but mostly toys and clothes for the grandkids.
As for me, my sister and I tried to carry on the tradition after she was gone but found it too much work and not worth our time. I don't go to many anymore, either...
You are too smart to be the only thing standing in your way.
You have 3 choices in life: give up, give in, or give it all you've got.
You may blame your job, your family, or your circumstances for your distress, but the reality is how you perceive anything in life is entirely up to you.
