Act 264

Have a yard sale. But don’t expect to sell the yard.

Over the last few weeks I’ve brought together quite an assortment of things in my house that I no longer need. Kitchen gear, sports equipment, clothes, books, even tires.

Today we set up shop in the front yard to sell it. And we sold a few things. But not as much as I would have liked. It’s no wonder, really, that my neighbourhood wouldn’t convene on a cloudy Sunday in my front yard to buy all the stuff I can’t be bothered with anymore.

But the sale isn’t the most important part. It’s the parting with items you realize you no longer need that’s important.┬áSo, what’s left will be donated or possibly sold online ’cause it isn’t coming back into my house. And what was made will be stashed away for another day. I have less stuff and more money that I did yesterday. And I can live with that.
