Garage Sales are not my Forte

Marcy had a garage sale Saturday so we took some stuff over. I’m not good at garage sales with either the pricing or bargaining. My husband gets upset with me so I don’t offer prices very often. My usual strategy is to start at $1. If they hesitate I say 50 cents then move straight on to free. Sometimes I get to free within less than a minute.

My kids (who are saving up for a Wii) sold lemonade and brownies. They sold quite a bit and would have come out ahead except they bought a lot of Marcy’s toys. They ended up about $3.00 in the hole. They managed to replace some of the stuff I got rid of, thus managing to negate the reason to have a yard sale. And I got a sunburn.
