Ding Ding Ding!!

We have a winner!

First, let me apologize for my tardiness in posting the winner of the yard sale total guessing game. We've had a busy week, preparing for the June kits' reveal at Just Cre8 tomorrow! Be sure to check it out - it's so bright and cheery, it's sure to bring a smile to your face!

We had beautiful weather on Friday for Day 1 of the Mother of All Yard Sales that we had on Mother's Day weekend (get it? Mother of All... Yeah, I figured you'd catch the cheesy pun! ;)) We had a surprising amount of stuff for just three families! As we hauled it out of my dad's basement, it just seemed to multiply!

Because Dad lives on a busy street, we usually had no less that 20 people in his long driveway at any given time! We managed to clear out most of our stuff in two days, and then boxed up the rest of it to donate, sharing it between the local women's shelters and Goodwill. I even managed to sell a huge stack of scrapbook paper!! You know, all of the Slabs that you purchase at Michael's, thinking you'll use it all - only to wake up one morning and discover that it's no longer appealing to you? Not alot of the baby/toddler clothes sold, but I saved only a few items for a friend who recently had a baby, and donated the rest! It felt good to purge through our stuff and lighten our load!

And now.... for the grand total!

Our total net for the two days, between our three families was a whopping $2417.74!! Crazy, isn't it??

And congratulations to Julie for her guess in our Guess-Our-Total game! She guess $1,349.75 - and we sold $1,270.34!! Woo hoo - Mama's getting some new blinds!! And Daddy's already bought his shed! ;)

Thanks to everyone for playing along - Julie, PM me your mailing address!
