It seems like forever since I've posted anything. Even though I think it's only been maybe 2 weeks I don't know : ) Life has just been super busy and just plain chaos even more so than normal (if that's even possible).
School stuff with the boys and drama. I'll just save that for another post. I've also had poor little sickies from throwing up, tummy aches to runny noses you get the idea. That's been spread around since the second week school started. That is one thing I really don't look forward to when school starts. Cause it seems like from the time school starts till it ends someone is sick : ( Allergies have been just terrible this year to!
I also ended up participating in a local moms fall consignment sale on Saturday. I've never done anything like that before but I have been wanting to go threw and declutter the hundreds of bins of clothes and stuff I've been hoarding of the boys stuff in the basement.
When it comes to my boys I'm such a hoarder of there stuff! I save everything clothing, toys I mean everything. We'll I guess I can't say everything cause I have donated slot to but I still have some how ended up with tons of bins of stuff stacked up to the ceiling in the basement.
I don't know why but I just get so attached to the memories that I associate to the stuff I just want to save everything. I will say though that with my older two boys being exactly 2 yrs apart in the same exact season alot of stuff got passed down. There's even toys from my older boys that little man plays with now so that's nice.
But I figured I should go threw some of it and get ride of some stuff. I've never done a garage sale or Craigslist or anything like that but after looking into it decided I'd try selling some stuff at a local fall consignment event. I did find out about it last minute and only had a few days to get stuff together but I did what I could.
It was $10 to register to be a seller and you had to enter each item in the computer and print an electric tag and pin it to each item. I will say that was a little stressful. Then I had to drop off my stuff on Friday at the church they were holding the sale at. Drop off was between 11:00 & 1:00. I had to cut little mans nap short so I would make it there in time. Then you had to check in and put your items up were they belong yourself.
I wasn't aware of that till I got there. So I had to hurry up to make it home in time before the boys got off of school. The sale was Saturday from 8 to 12 so it wasn't very long and I did volunteer so I could get a higher percent of sales back. After volunteering I ended up getting 70% of my sales back. Little man did come with me while I worked my shift he was so good and patient we were there for 2 1/2 hrs.
I ended up selling $274.00 worth of stuff and after they took there 30% I ended up making $191.80. I'll be getting a check with in a week so not to bad for a 4 hr sale. I'm just gonna put that towards new clothes for the boys. Anyways that's what's been going on with us : ) Hope you all had a good weekend : )
