We Were Hustlin', Hustlin', Hustlin'

Things are moving on quickly this summer, and our garage sale day was finally here. Layne is the master project organizer, and this was really a breeze. We pulled everything to sell last weekend, priced some things throughout the week, and Layne was up bright and early to get things ready. I joined him outside as our first customers pulled up at 6:45am.
Layne was pretty creative with the set-up. We used Granny's kitchen table chairs and old doors from the renovations to make extra tables so we could spread things out. We had clothes, jewelry, shoes, purses, plates, serving ware, books, frames, 2 Weber Grills, TVs, and the list goes on. At noon we started packing it up, so we could be showered and on the couch for the USA vs. England soccer match. (Insert a GEAUX USA!)
And we even had a layaway department for those who needed to go pick up their paycheck or run to the ATM. It's all about moving volume, and we got a great deal ($15) for a couple sets of old sheets and a wedding shower gift we have never used.
So yes, we spent our morning hustlin'. And it really was worth every minute of our time. We made $375 off of things we really want to purge anyway, and you really can't beat that.
