Recycling At Its Best

I'm pretty sure a yard sale is recycling at its ultimate best.
You typically can't get better then most prices and you are shopping used while supporting locally. (the local part is a stretch I know)
But MAN even on a gray, cold, semi-misty rainy day we had people out in Droves at our sale which netted us quite a haul for our son's school tuition.
People in general weren't too bad with the prices. I had to go low on a few things, but it was worth it in the end. After all I don't need anything else to be added to my own personal load of stuff! I would say that about 85% of the stuff we had our sale was donated by others who also didn't need anymore stuff in their lives.
Any of that stuff that didn't make the cut was sent to the free pile that was taken from about 8 boxes to 3. Oh the Free stuff. More junk you don't need or could even want.
But no sense in sending it to the dump - someone might actually use it and it'll stay out of the dump for at least one other person. Here's hoping anyway.
So how well did we do? Well we did about $1000 just for one sale. Thats not too shabby dontcha think??
Thanks to everyone who helped and made it fun and FANTASTIC!
