When the garage door goes up at a quarter to eight am... there are people WAITING in their cars to come and lay claim to my JUNK. They scavenge over it as though they are rare and valuable treasures... however, sadly most of their purchases will end up in the same place... their garage sale next summer!
We as a society are so in love with the "thrill of the deal" that we often don't stop to ask ourselves:
- "Is this purchase something I will use again?"
- "Is this purchase meeting a need in my life or my home?"
- "Is this a purchase I was looking to buy already?"
No most of the time we just see the price tag of a quarter... and decide at that price... we will FIND a use or place for it.
Garage sales can be a huge pit for clutter collectors... so I encourage you... buyer beware! Make sure you have a need for it or a purpose for it; otherwise, you may as well leave the price tag on it to save yourself the trouble of having to reprice it next year for your sale!
