It seemed like a brilliant idea. My house is a mess and I have entirely too much crap. I'm moving from a 4000 square foot house into a 1000 square foot apartment, so a lot of that crap MUST GO. But it needs to be unpacked from boxes that were never unpacked from the last move, sorted through and labeled for a yard sale! Invite a friend to help. She could use the money and I could use the help.
And here I am on the other end of that brilliant idea. The crap did not get unpacked or sorted, the yard sale yielded just enough money for the friend to take $200+ home with her and my part of the yard sale did not exceed the funds needed to bring her here & prepare for the yard sale. End result? I am $150 in the hole and I still have all of the unpacking and sorting to do.
Back to the drawing board.
