I am generally not a fan of garage sales, going to them or definitely not having them. I am much more about giving everything away and have made the kids do that a few times a year. This year however after Serona's encouragement I agreed to have one. I invited friends from our homeschool co-op to join me and ended up with three wonderful families. I could not have done this without them and they were such an encouragement and blessing to me.
I can't say my opinion of garage sales has changed as they are a lot of work. But I will say this. We raised enough money to purchase the GPS we wanted and the kids got several playdates and we moved a lot of stuff out of the house. So all in all I must admit it was not a bad deal. I won't be jumping to do one next year though. I will concede if we have a specific reachable goal and enough stuff to sell I might do it again in a few years. Until then it is back to the free giveaways for us.
Now we are just waiting for Monday when our Garmin Etrex Legend Cx finally arrives and we can head out and start geocaching as a family. You can be sure to see updates here.
