Yard Sale for Haiti

September 25th was our Yard Sale for Haiti. We have some great friends here and they run a school in Haiti. Tony and I have been looking for ways to get involved and help them out... so we planned a yard sale!
 We received  a ton of donations! Which is really a good thing, but for us it was a bad thing- we spent $45 on stuff that never made it out to the sale! Not the greatest plan when we are trying to simplify our home!

We had quite a bit of children's clothes & toys. We sold very little of them too.

We also had a ton of adult clothing, but we didn't sell much of that either! 

At the end of the day we loaded all the unsold goods into our garage and now I have things listed on Ebay, craigslist and our church site.  
So far we've made around $400 and we hope to add another $100 to it with online sales. 

I think the sale was successful, and it provided a great opportunity to spend an entire day with friends!
