Moving all of our belongings 2200 miles across the country is very expensive, so we have decided to sell practically everything except basically our kitchen stuff, clothes, some toys, and memorabilia.. whatever we are able to fit in a small trailer we will tow with our mini van. Therefore, I have been going through our house from top to bottom sorting everything into one of three categories: save, sell, or garbage. I have been selling items we don't use on craigslist left and right, and yesterday we did our first ever yard sale with two other families in our ward. I was pleased with how much we were able to sell and get rid of, and that we were able to make $175 on items we don't plan on replacing anyway! It was a lot of work and though I am glad we did it, I am glad it is over too.
I hate to do a post without pictures, so here is the one shot I caught yesterday at the yard sale. This is Maybrie and her best bud Sadie. I found them sailing in the boat that didn't sell while we were cleaning up! :)
