What a Steal

Saturday was the church yard sale and I forgot to take my camera! It was on my 'to-do' list, but at five in the morning my mind wasn't able to remember everything!! So - no pictures of the grand event!!
A few of the youth group girls spent the night and we arrived at the chapel at 6 in the morning (everything had been set up the night before.) All the signs and newspaper ads said that it would open at 7am, but deal obsessed people were there at 6:15!! I think those people need help! Who gets up at 6 to hit yard sales??
Ah well - everyone who came to our yard sale got amazing deals! All of the books were 2 for .25 cents, stuffed animals were fill a bag for $1. Nice lawn chairs went for $1/piece. Two play pens went for $6 each. We had a little bit of everything at the sale, and our goal was to get rid of as much as possible so we didn't have to take it to the local Good Will. We didn't end up selling everything, but we did clear out a lot of what we started with and we made a bundle of money in the process!
Our grand total for our Garage Sale and donation based Car Wash was $851.17! A lot more than any of us expected!!
