Organizing 2009

I haven’t forgotten that I commited myself, Mr. Wonderful and the rest of the clan to a year of organizing.  This past weekend was spent having a yardsale.  Since we only made about $130 I’ll be going to work tomorrow.  I wasn’t that impressed with what we made, but I was VERY impressed with the two trips that Ole Blue and Mr. Wonderful took to Goodwill.  Yes, I said two truck loads.

My chairs didn’t sell, but I’m ok with that.  I have a box of books for The Ronald McDonald House, both children and adult books. 

I traded retired Stampin’ Up stamps for two Coach purses.

Seeing My Baby Girl’s bike in the back of the truck made my heart hurt.  I think that’s when I knew how determined I’ve become to getting organized.

I am so happy to see my car parked back in the garage.

The Marketing Director in my asked each customer how they heard about our sale.  I have to say overwhelmingly it was from Craig’s List.  I had paid $27 for an ad in our local paper and not one customer said they came because of that ad. 

I should take a picture of my craft room because it is a hot mess, but instead I better just get off this computer and get some organizing done in there.
