Well, the count down to moving day has begun! Well the count down actually started a while ago but it is officially less than 30 days until we head out on our cross country move! To lighten the load of some unnecessary crap, we joined in the 19th ward Annual Aberdeen Square Community Fair which let you have tables for a small fee to sell items. This community wide flea market started at 10 am but we had to be on site at 8am to set up.
I had a ton of movies and playstation 2 games that I was trying to get rid of and also a ton of glass ware that I did not feel like trying to pack and move!! The movies pictured here is not even half of what I had at home, but we are in the process of dubbing all of our VHS movies to DVD, and that is a lengthy and time consuming process. so we only brought the ones that we already dubbed.
My mother also had two tables full of glassware, stone ware, figurines and almost anything else you could name!
My oldest daughter and
My youngest daughter were definitely on hand to help out!
This experience was fun but very exhausting! I was determined not come back home with any of this stuff! The games moved pretty quickly, but the movies were a bit slow on the take. It seems everyone and their mother no longer watches VHS movies!
I had these movies prices at $1 each at 8am, we sold a few. By 11:30am by 2 get 1 free. By 12:30pm they were buy 3 get 1 free. By 2:30pm it was "Got $1 fill a bag"! I was stuffing 5-7 movies in these peoples bags and they thought I was crazy! But when I said "I REFUSE TO BRING THIS STUFF BACK HOME" that is exactly what I meant!
Do you see this bunch of movies!! No way I was taking this back home, to pack and move!
Oh did I mention that it was about 92 degrees out there!
Oh, By the way, special note to a friend of mine who will probably read this in her downtime... I saw 2 of our former students, and their moms. Chelsea & her mom (I have no words and nothing to say about mom, except bigger is not better), Mom complained about dad for the full 20 MINUTES that she stood there, not caring that I was IGNORING HER! And Kishad and his mom. He has gotten very tall and looks exactly the same as he did 4 years ago!!All of which asked how you were and what you were up to. I assured them you were doing extremely well and were happy!
Most of the glassware was very slow to move, but being at a table right next to my mom who had TONS of glassware didn't help. I started giving that away too! At 4pm (the fair was 8-4) I left and there were maybe 5 movies and just a 2 or 3 glass items left, I figured someone would eventually take them!
All in all I made a nice little piece of change (considering I was going to take all of this mess to VOA or Salvation Army!) and got rid of some stuff. The less I have to tote across the United States the better!!
So that is pretty much how my Saturday was spent! Exciting isn't it??
Peace & Love
