Garage sale...

Garage sale was FUN! Exhausting... but fun!
I arrived at the old apartment at around 7:40am and there were people already waiting to buy stuff. It may have been because of the newspaper ad I placed that said "Greatest Garage Sale EVER!". I threw my boxes out on the patio and lawn and sold quite a bit in the first hour. Jay arrived and started selling his stuff. Bettina arrived and sold some of her stuff. Andrea arrived with food and we noshed and laughed and noshed some more while we sold our junk and sat in the shade.

Fergus was bored but made the best of it.
Sadly... Jay, Bettina and I all got parking tickets because I forgot it was Saturday and that there is only 2 hour parking in front of our house. Grrrrrr.

I sold a LOT of my junk and I haven't done an official count but minus the parking ticket and the ad in the paper I think I made about $200. *woot* Now I have some spending money for when I go down to LA. :)

After everyone left I finished cleaning the apartment. Cleaned the microwave, stove, fridge, dishwasher, kitchen sink and then set about mopping the floors. By the time I got home I was beyond tired. Took a quick bath and had a snooze on my lovely new and very long couch with my favourite cuddle partner, Fergus.

What a long day. Will someone please make me dinner? I'm too tired.

I'm glad to see there is someone else who really cleans up the old place before officially clearing out. I always do, as a courtesy, but I know A LOT don't. I've moved into some of those places. Blech!
Glad your sale was a success. Are you all settled in the new place now?
