This morning has already been a busy one. I have been getting ready for our yard sale tomorrow and for some reason it has made me very anxious. I think it's because I don't like getting rid of things. I have always been that way, a pack-rat. My biggest problem is that I look at things and think "what if we need that someday?" That is rediculous. I mean yeah there are going to be some things that you should hold on to for the future but the things that I have are things that are old and probably wouldn't serve our purpose anyway. I am also overwhelmed because there is so much to do and I have to do it alone because Matt is working. There are so many boxes to go through and so many pieces of furniture to be moved and I just don't have it in me. The yard sale is supposed to start at 8am tomorrow and we don't have half of the things out that neeed to be out. Nothing is priced and I feel like I'm having a heart attack. I think we need to leave the house for a little while and then try again later.

I totally understand!! We had our first garage sale a couple of weekends ago. I was suprised at how much money we made. I hate letting go of things too. It's so hard. But I made myself a promise to take what we didn't sell to DI. I did!! I was so proud of myself. Normally I would've just let it sit and then it would've ended up in our house again collecting dust. I lost 200 pounds in a weekend!! It was awesome. And so far I haven't missed anything. Good luck!! You can do it! I love you so much and miss you!

Don't worry about pricing stuff. Lisa Mower did one where she just said make me an offer on just about everything, minus the big stuff, and she made a bunch of money too.

Yard sales are hard work but it will be worth it... take the rest to a charity like your friend did! NO bringing it back in the house.

Read Marla Cilley's "Sink Reflections" and Peter Walsh's "It's All Too Much." They'll help you put keeping stuff in perspective! Love ya and GOOD LUCK!
