This past weekend we had a garage sale – FINALLY – and it won’t be the last. We are in the process of purging for a few reasons:
- We have too much stuff. It’s everywhere. And clutter really stresses Hilary out.
- We need money to pay towards debt so naturally, it’s smart to sell your own stuff.
- We are thinking about downsizing and maybe even selling our house in the near future so we need to get rid of a lot.
- We watched the documentary “The Minimalists” and it has us really inspired.
The garage sale was a success! It was really busy – probably our best turnout ever – with over 100 visitors. We sold over half of what we had put out and made $185 which we will put towards debt.
After a few more weeks of purging, we plan to have a 2nd Garage Sale and then probably just donate the rest of what doesn’t sell.
I leave you with a quote by the Minimalists:
