Garage Sale Mania In Our Town, Just A Personal Note

By

Is it just me or has our town just decided to clean out their junk?

There was actually competing signs on every street corner on parts of Main Street in Billings Montana this weekend, with colorful directions to a yard or garage sale.  As I look around my garage, and my office, I have to wonder who else would want any of this shit stuff?  And for all of the garage sale mania going on, why do people even want more stuff?

Why are we so attached to this stuff?  Well, sometimes we spent hard cold cash for a really great thing we might need some day.  Or, maybe we inherited some really good memorabilia from some of our older family members (I think they were just trying to clean out their crap so they could buy new stuff). 

About 20 years ago I left my husband in charge of the movers and headed to our new home and work in another town.  When the movers arrived I had 5 couches instead of the 2 I had when I left.  His thought was that we had a bigger house and we could handle a few more couches that some other people in the family didn't want anymore.  I do love this man, so what have I done to handle this situation?  Built a 30 x 50 foot shop.  This way we can at least close the doors and no one is the wiser!

I wish I could have a garage sale, but what would I put in the sale?  It's all really good stuff right now, or so I'm told.

Wanda, I love going to garage sales but the older I get the only way I pick something up is if I KNOW IT HAS A HOME.  If something comes in then usually something has to go out.

Hi Marchel, what a pretty name (my daughters middle name is Rochelle).  I'm hoping to have one "some day", but I'm afraid of the feeling of being organized, I think.

Is there any better way to spend a Saturday morning. Hagling over the stuff is where the real fun is. I like to go at least once a month that is about all the time I have for it.
