I am trying to get ready for a yard sale next week. The idea is good....sell all the crap so I don't have to pack it and move it into my new house. In reality, it's not going so smoothly.
Hubby is a collector. A pack rat. A man attached to his belongings. His contribution to the yard sale so far has been "Do not sell any of my stuff. Do NOT." Well, it's mainly his stuff that falls into the "crap I don't want to move" camp. Do we really need multiple copies of "The Hobbit"? It's a good book, but a person can only read one copy at a time! Other things I don't think we need to keep include a homemade trebuchet, swords, various pieces of armor, 4 long boxes of comics, many, many boxes of role-playing books, clothes he hasn't worn for years, chainmail making stuff, 3 pairs of winter boots (he's a Yukoner. He wears the same shoes year round.) and an old printer. That's just the tip of the iceberg.
If any of you have a way to get him out of the house next Saturday, I'm open to suggestions. He needs to be gone for at least a few hours while I unload this crap!
