For those of you not
hanging onto my every word following my blog super closely, we are planning on having a garage sale (two actually) with donated items. Our friends/family donate their items, we sell them, the funds go towards our adoption. Since we live in a townhouse, my college friend Lainey and my co-worker Megan are hosting these sales for us. We are doing them at the same time as their neighborhood sales in the hopes of driving more traffic.
Today the date was announced for Lainey’s sale- May 14th! Mark your calendars! This will be in the Northland/Liberty area. (Megan’s will be in the Overland Park area). Also, clean out your houses! We will start taking donations mid-April, but if you have stuff you want to get rid of before then, let me know and we will figure something out. We’ll take clothes, furniture, household items, athletic gear…anything you want to get rid of and don’t mind the proceeds going towards a great cause. And please spread the word about both the need for donated goods and the garage sale itself to everybody you know!
This is good for many reasons:
- It gives me something to do for our adoption (see previous post)
- It will help relieve the financial burden of adoption
- Garage Sales mean that SUMMER IS COMING, BABY!
