My Middle Name is Resourceful

Well, it should be. I don't really like my middle name anyway.

We're having our garage sale this week. Here in our area, you start them on Thursday. If you don't, you miss out, because apparently that's the big day. And since we are having a subdivision-wide yard/garage sale, I'm having it on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 9 until 4. I don't think I've ever had one past 2:00 in the afternoon, and I usually close up at noon. I'm breaking out of my shell.

I'm also having a garage sale with four tables. How do you have a garage sale with four tables? You get really resourceful, hence the new middle name.


29 large U-Haul boxes later, I have makeshift tables lining the entire fringe of my garage. To make them look a little nicer, I put tablecloths on them, then when I ran out I used a couple of flat sheets.

Mulitiple uses? Maybe I should let U-Haul know.

Here we are Wednesday evening just prior to the subdivision pre-sale.


Of course the last couple of days are when it's finally warmed up and felt like summer. But I don't care too much — it's no worse than anywhere else we've been, it's short-lived, and I know I'll have a lot less stuff in my garage when this is done.

Clever idea with the boxes! Hope you sell lots, too. Be grateful it's not a heat wave there like it is here. AR is H-O-T right now:)
