Enjoying all the simple pleasures in life...family, friends, ice cream, and chocolate!

The lake community behind us is having their community garage sale coming up here in May. It is well advertised and from what I hear, they get a really good turnout. I've never participated in a garage sale before, but since Barry and I are getting out of the "baby business", I have LOTS of things to get rid of. Like tubs and tubs of baby clothes, both sexes. And a changing table and a daybed and a crib and an exersaucer and bedding and well, you get the picture. I am so looking forward to all this stuff being gone, because I can't even wrap my brain around the fact that I will have ALL THAT SPACE. I sold my 2-child bike trailer on Craig's List for $70 this week (I'm becoming a Craig's List fanatic folks!)...and I am sooooo excited about that!
So anyway, back to the garage sales. Being that I've never done one, I am having trouble getting started. It seems to me that the biggest part of it is pricing everything. I can't even imagine how long that will take! LOL! And how do you determine what price to put on the various items? I've heard from a lot of my friends that they think it is a ridiculous amount of work, and they would rather do Craigs List or Ebay. But I don't know that I want to deal with the shipping. So I was wondering....what are your thoughts? Any advice? I just KNOW Logzie will have some!! Ha!
I'm a thirty-something mother of two, wife to one (haha), trying to live a simpler life in the log home my hubby built just for us. I've been called a tree-hugging granola cruncher by some of my friends, but I'm really not. I'm just trying to appreciate all the simple joys life has to offer...my rugged and handy hubby, my silly kids, good friends, great food, lots of fun, and of course, ICE CREAM & CHOCOLATE ! I love to laugh, so my day is not complete until I've made time to watch something funny before bed...mainly The Office! Come and spend the day with me... we'll have a great time, I promise!
