Wish me luck! I am fundraising for curriculum with a garage sale this weekend. The kids are out there running the show right now while I take a break inside with the little ones. We haven't had any customers yet , but it's only Thursday.

I always find it interesting to hear about people having multi-day garage sales. Here they are typically only done from about 7 or 8 until noon or 1 on Saturdays. Rarely do they go more than that.

Best of luck to you!!! I am going to sit my stuff out tomorrow and try to have one myself! I have found so many things that I really needed to put in a garage sale last time i had one.

I also have yardsales on Thursdays and Fridays. On Saturday, there are too many people out in town to both with coming here.

I've been getting rid of stuff, but we donate it. I just can't imagine anyone wanting to pay for my junk.

Good luck to both of you! I had mine a few weeks ago. I had it Thursday-Saturday. That's common around here. Thursday was actually my best day, too.

I was supposed to have one last weekend to pay for my curriculum sale this weekend, but the people we were going to have it with pooped out and we were going to have it at their house so No go. We're supposed to have it next weekend...after BOTH curriculum sales. I guess that will cover whatever I might spend at the sales then too, but it would have been nice to have the money beforehand.
