Well the garage was a mess. Tubs everywhere! Junk everywhere. Grass from the mower rotting on the cement floor and smelling of cat pee where the stray cats next door had left their mark. My garage left nothing to complement a homemaker. I was reminded of the proverbs that says a wise woman builds her house but the foolish plucks it down. So I set to work. Sorting through children's clothes, books, and treasures saved for a rainy day. Finally three days later....I was starring at a much more organized garage! Howbeit still full due to the garage sale mound on one side! But I was so happy as was my husband. The garage had been a great source of stress for him and now he could breathe just a bit easier! His stress levels and that of my children were going down. I could already see the benefits of the life I was pursuing!
Well, the first thing I decided to do was start throwing the things I knew weren't keepers in bags and boxes. That was the easy and fun part. It wasn't hard for me! I began to mound a section of my very full garage with just garage sale items and also began to enjoy the benefits of a clean home!!! Even with three small children at home. We are trying to build our emergency fund right now, so instead of donating everything right away, I decided to sell it very cheap. Doing it this way would not only allow me to help build that fund but also be a blessing to the people in my tiny town! so prepping for a garage sale I began!
