The BIG Yard Sale

OMG!!! I did not realize this was going to be such a chore. Our closet was over flowing and that is saying a lot considering it is about 8 foot by 10 foot. It has rods for hanging and the wall are lined with shelves for folded clothes. Believe it or not it was so full of tubs of outgrown clothes that you could hardly get to the clothes that we could wear. 15 tubs 8 boxes and countless bags later I am still trying to get it all sorted and hung up for our big sale. Yes, it is all getting hung up on hangers and my husband is going to build me a contraption to hang all 1000 outfits on. That does not include a couple of hundred onsies and socks. Oh and blankets and shirts and pants that never had anything to go with them. My thought was maybe we could make a little money to help with their next clothing purchases. Now I am wondering if it is going to be worth it. I have bought about 700 hangers. CRAZY. I actually do have pictures but I will have to download them later, time is precious at the moment.
Let us not forget the four little ones who are not helpful and cannot understand why there is stuff everywhere and they can't seem to get to it, not for lack of trying. Never a dull moment, that's for sure!!! Someday I will look back on all this craziness but not today and not tomorrow.


  1. wish i could be there for the big sale! :-(

  2. believe will make some MOOOLA! i had a sale after my quads turned one and i made a lot of money because people love buying baby stuff! and some things hold their resale value very well ie Bumbo seats--i sold those for the same amt i bought them. Good LUCK!
