The garage sale we had today was the best thing we've done for a very long time. I've realised that having a garage sale is a very social thing to do. You know, we got to meet some lovely people. We got to meet people who told us all about their children, people who told us about their dog, their neighbourhood, their garden, their hobbies, their collections, their love of old furniture and all sorts of other things. We had people who wanted to smell my roses and people who wanted to pat my dogs. We had neighbours who popped in for a chat. If you've never had a garage sale, clean out some cupboards, put out a sign and enjoy the day. At the end of the day you'll be tired but happy. You'll also have a little bit extra cash to enjoy something just a tiny bit special.

  1. I think of garage sales all the time, but just the organizing of it makes me pack stuff up for Goodwill.
