Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday: Garage Sale

In a few weeks, I’m helping a friend host a yard sale so that she can clean out her home in time for Christmas. She wants a peaceful and serene holiday season this year, and I’m all for that: I consider purging junk a form of entertainment.

Clutter literally stresses me out.

Want to know what else stresses me out though?

Yard sales.

Hate them. Yuck. Ick. Bleck.

Why? Because I don’t have the patience to haggle with people who throw a fit because they’d rather not pay $2 for an Ann Taylor Loft bag that originally cost me $50!

Wow. I thought I was over that.

I digress. Despite my reservations, my friend wants to do this and I’m supporting her.

Here’s what I’ll be wearing and listening to {have you heard Pink Martini? So swanky and smooth … I just love ’em!} as I’m resisting the urge to slap someone.

    LOL, Michelle you crack me up! If you wind up in custody, call me and I’ll bail you out. 😉 I think you must REALLY *LOVE* this friend, because I can recall a couple years ago when I was doing a tag sale, your saying, “A tag sale? No way would I do one. Over my dead body!” Just goes to show how much you treasure friendship… and how sensible you are about not cluttering up your life with, well, clutter! You’re definitely my role model in that department, babe, and I will always thank you for introducing me to FlyLady so I can tame the clutter monster in my home. 😀

  2. I feel the same way about yard sales! I would rather donate it all to Goodwill! You are a good friend and you will be looking adorable in your little ensemble. Good luck!

  3. LOL so true about yard sales. It’s just VITAL to go into it saying at the end of the day, you’re just going to donate it all anyways! (if you’re not willing to say that, don’t try to sell it!) Then you’ll sell everything for whatever people want and you’ll make a lot more money. Lollll

  4. Yard sales do kinda …bite… and they really can be a lot of work — which is why I tend to suggest that my clients donate instead of doing a sale. You *are* a good friend! Kudos to your friend for going the clutter-free route and making the effort to recoup some money. Big kudos to you for your support…and for resisting the urge to knock out the hagglers.

  10. Michelle >> I’m so glad you found me! Love your lil spot. And I’m hoping you might be interested in contributing to my series this month–only makes sense! Let me know 🙂

    PS, clutter stresses me out too. The only reason I ever did a yard sale was to finally be rid of the clutter. And it worked! Kind of 🙂

  11. That outfit is adorbs! I love the pink converse. I think I’m going to buy a pair! I MUST get around to checking out Stella and Dot.
