Our First Garage Sale. Why do we love yard sales so much? It saves us money on so many things. You find unique items – the yardsale seller may be someone who has traveled the world and is downsizing. Buying at yardsales helps the environment since you are not getting all the excess packaging that comes with stuff when it is new in store. You meet interesting people. You never know what you will find or who you will meet when shopping at a yardsale.
After their wedding last year, Sara and John moved to a house on the biggest street in the suburbs. They have a lot of items and their house is small and unspacious because they still can’t afford a bigger one. So they decided to get rid of old clothing, books, toys, household decorations, lawn and garden tools, sports equipment and board games and some home appliances.The young couple decided that this weekend will be perfect for their first garage sale. Instead of giving away or throwing away miscellaneous items this season they will sell them and use the money to buy new items for their new home.
It’s Saturday and the weather is good. Sara and John placed the items in the yard this morning for the sale and they are hoping for some ‘early birds’. It’s almost afternoon and no one is arriving.Wait! The first buyers are here. Sara and John start to bargain. This is a routine because items may or may not have price labels affixed. Some of the people even buy their goods to restore them for resale. It’s finally starting to go well and Sara secretly sends a smile to John.
