Garage Sales...

I'm wiped out! We started on Wednesday to put together the garage sale items, putting tables, together sorting items and carrying endless boxes up from basements. Then on Thursday we tagged everything and opened up on Friday at 7am. We closed at 5pm but stood outside with the neighbors till 11pm. Then Sat we left the guys in charge (yes they did really well!) and did a little garage saling ourselves and some country store shopping. When we got back they had sold almost everything...

Now I know your eyes are going to bug on this but Mike sold Ambers used gap/limited too clothes in a huge lot (20 outfits or so) for $41!! I know its a garage sale but dang it all - they should have been going for more than that.

I was able to get rid of a few things and threw in our dressers/crib from Amber (she's 12 lol) and the dressers matched the crib - when she got a new bedroom set, I got rid of the bachelor items and took her dressers from the nursery. NOW I get to purchase a new bedroom set!! *I'll show you later*

My gf Laura did really good! She got rid of a lot of country/crafty items and her new dishwasher from when she moved into the house. (Our houses had kinda cheapy appliances, the obvious one was the stove with no clock on it lol)

Now the fun part is going tomorrow to order my bedroom set. I went to American, Slumberland, Ashley Furniture and one more place today with Mike but Furniture Row was the best quality for the best price. With the garage sale I made enough to make a large dent into our new set and Furniture Row has a 30 month no interest plan - too cool!!

I Love this bed - Basic but still has charm and the color is rich in person. The wood has nicks and gauges in it to make it look worn. I really love that character in the wood. Makes it feel homey.

They came out with a cool revision of the armoire - its a tv chest. Has room for the DVD player and the cable box. It's not as deep but I like it alot! And it's half the price as the armoire in the collection!

Here is the whole set - I am debating about the tall dresser or the long dresser for myself. I'm just not sure which yet. I don't need a mirror and I'm not sure if I have long enough space for the dresser. The chest can go on the one wall perfectly. I got a deal on the nightstands - one free if I got both with a set.

I'll take before and after pictures :)
