We were able to buy our microwave and put a little extra into our emergency savings. A yard sale is a lot like painting in that what really sucks about it is all the prep work. But like painting it definitely pays off in the end. I would throw a yard sale again any day. Our total profits were $483.00, which afforded us our goal the micro hood combo. Now if I could just come up with 20 grand to redo our attic. Ah, dreams.
