Giving Away Party

My special sellers held an event at the home they are selling.  With their large family, including four sons, wives, a bunch of grandkids, and great grands, this couple opened their home, and so many came.

 

I stopped by  Sunday after my radio show to see this wonderful home filled with beautiful happy people.

The purpose: a Giving Away Party!

 

Everyone could choose from many cherished items, and they all got fed lots of wonderful home cooking.

What a terrific reason to have a party! The house was filled with laughter, photo-taking, story sharing, making memories, and helping Grandma and Pop lessen the stuff that needed packing, moving, and giving away. 

 

Have you ever thought about how we pay others to throw our stuff away?

Think of all the organizers, stagers, haulers, and others who, for a fee, help you sort what you are keeping, what you are donating, and what you are giving away.

 

It seems one of the most daunting challenges when it comes time to sell.

What do we do with all our stuff?

 

A 'Giving Away' Party is the perfect way to start the process of moving! Have you been to any of these parties?

Let's spread the word.

After the immediate family has chosen their favorite items, before they move, there will be other ''Giving Away Parties'' including friends and neighbors. 

What a great reason to have a party!

Margaret I absolutely love this idea!  We give away (donate) quite often and perhaps next time we'll have a giving away party!  Way fun!

Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 So much less trouble than hiring an estate sale company, or doing a yard sale (tag sale). That's a really fun idea, combined with a party!

Thanks Margaret, I love this idea.. and in my case we already have family names on the "trinkets" so to speak, our mother did the same thing when she was alive. They've become treasured keepsakes and will eventually be passed on to younger ones.
