Tip #21 – Beware of Garage Sales

garage-sales1

It’s starting to warm up and people (like us) are cleaning out their homes and spaces.  Next up – sell all your stuff!

I’ve never really gotten into garage-saling.  I know it is a thing, and I know you can probably find some good deals out there.  Honestly, I would rather go for a run or sleep-in on a Saturday morning than go driving around and go shopping through other people’s used items.

This morning, my boys and I spent about two hours picking-up and cleaning our house.  And the whole time I was thinking, we just don’t really need any more stuff.  I don’t want to have to deal with or clean around anymore stuff!

I think the best way to make the most out of garage sales is to have a plan or a wish list.  But most importantly – stick to your plan.  It is so easy to fall to temptation over the cute picture of the cat or another toy for your grandson.  But if it isn’t on the list or part of the plan….ask  yourslef – do you really want to pick it up later, clean around it later, eventually get rid of it later?
