That's how much we made at our yard sale on Saturday! Now I must admit that $130 of that came from selling one item of Kristian's. However I'm still pretty pumped that we made $100 on the rest of the stuff we sold, especially since nothing went for more than $5 and most items sold for more like $1. Even though we were hoping to make money we were also mainly interested in just getting rid of everything so we were slashing prices every hour.
Since we live in a condo and therefore have no yard we had to go to his buddies house down the street to set up shop. We got out there around 6:15am to start setting up since there are a lot of early bird shoppers. Fortunately the neighborhood we were in already had a bunch of signs up advertising other yard sales so we just put up a few signs leading people to the court we were on. I was really surprised by the number of people that showed up. At times we were 6 cars deep. It also surprised me the way that people would haggle over the prices. There were some people who would see the $2 sticker and then want it for $1.25...REALLY?? You really are trying to save 75 whole cents on an item that we probably paid $30 for in the first place. Sigh. Oh well, we made a good amount to help fund our OBX trip this month and we now have a cleaned out guest room that we can see the floor of again. All the items we didn't sell we dropped off at Goodwill.
Yesterday I had lunch with one of my old roommates Lauren. It was great catching up with her and hearing the latest drama in her life. I've noticed that living with a boy has really made me appreciate my girl time even more. It's nice to have the extra estrogen around every now and then. Oh and I got to bring home a monster piece of chocolate cake from The Cheesecake Factory that was basically an orgasm for my mouth. Bonus!
