Got rid of soooooo much stuff to Boy Scouts garage sale!

Tomorrow is the big day - the H-U-G-E garage sale my sons' boy scouts troop puts on every summer. We started setting up at 2:00 last Sunday and have worked every day since.

My goal was: every time I drove down to the church to sort & set up, take a FULL van load of my own clutter. I did it! 8 trips - 8 vanloads GONE.

It's only stratched the surface but I can tell a big difference in the garage & the 2 younger sons' room. (Oldest son is pretty neat & not a clutterbug).

2 old bikes out of the garage, about 10 old lawn chairs out of the garage, 2 shelving units, 2 sets of unused skiis & poles, a big box of outgrown soccer cleats, dozens of bags of outgrown kids clothes, a HUGE box of shoes from all of us, box of purses, tons of my own clothes. It feels SO GOOD to get all that out of my house!

Wonderful, the best part is whatever doesn't sell, the Boy Scouts will get rid of it or donate it, it's never coming back to you! I donated a bunch of stuff to my daughters'
school when they held a giant White Elephant sale. Thw most embarassing item was an electric breast punp from my breast feeding days. Wht did I keep that around so long?

Sounds like you did a good thing - both for yourself and for the Boy Scout troop. Congratulations!

Yay, mommabird!

That's a lot of space reclaimed in your home.
