One of the items on my 101 List is to go through the paper, list out the yard sales, and hit the sales. Well, mission accomplished. I came home with nothing. And burned lots of gas doing it. Yard sales just aren't for me!
***People have yard sales primarily to get rid of the junk they've collected around their house. OOOooooh, sign me up! Can I buy your junk?
***When I go to yard sales, I find that I'm searching for that one perfect "thing" to buy. If I didn't know I needed it three minutes previously, do I really "need" it now?
***I have to try clothes on before buying, so there's no sense in looking for clothes.
***I just really don't like digging through other people's things.
***I feel awkward leaving the sale without buying anything. Obviously that doesn't guilt me into buying stuff, but still.
***I dislike clutter. I work hard to keep the clutter out of my house. So why do I want to go around and collect it?
I realize that you can score great deals at yard sales! We have before - we got a cedar chest for $5 a few years back! Kevin refinished it and it turned out beautiful! But the whole yard-saling process just isn't for me! I think I'll leave the yard sales for those who want to go to them! ;-)
