We held our garage sale this past Saturday and there was SO much stuff to get rid of. We probably sold about half of what we had and took the rest to Goodwill. It amazes me that we had a yard sale last year in Carrollton with just as much or more stuff for sale.
Where does it all come from? This time though, we did a thorough purge. Nothing went into the house that was not absolutely loved or needed. It is so nice that we don’t have overflowing cabinets or stuffed closets. (Although our master closet looks a little sad, since we got rid of most of our clothes!) At this point the only things we have stored in the attic are empty totes and holiday decorations. And for the most part, our parents’ houses are cleared of our things.
Now, we have turned our efforts to the open house we are planning. I am so excited to have our loved ones come up and check out the new house! We decided to make a whole day of it. Our family will come up for lunch and our friends will come in for dinner. That way we can spread everybody out, but still only get the house ready once and buy/ cook food once.
How the rooms look so far:
