In our progress towards getting rid of 2010 in 2010, Kara and I had a two-weekend yard/garage sale.  Our original hope was to only do the event once, a community yard sale held at our condo complex.  The intention was to build relationships with our neighbors and help promote community involvement.  Despite two weeks of advertisement around the condo complex, turnout was low and we sold only 1/3 of our total items.  Even passers-by, which are many in our area, didn’t stop often!  Regardless, we did meet a few new neighbors.

Hickory Place Yard Sale

Since we were not able to sell as much as we liked, our friends Gabe and Libbey let us use their garage over the holiday weekend.  Friday was tremendously busy with people garage sale-ing, so we sold quite a lot.  Saturday was really slow, maybe slower than the yard sale at our condo.  By the end of the day, there were maybe still 75 items left unsold so we just donated them to Goodwill.

Packing/counting items – Can you find Bean??

We are now near reaching our goal of getting rid of 2010 items.  The yard/garage sale has given us a count 788 total items eliminated!!!
