No Friday Finishes for This Girl -- Yard Sale

For the last two weeks have been filled with a lot of craziness! I decided two weekend ago that I should host a yard sale this weekend! YIKES!

I have NEVER hosted a yard sale and I can't believe that I'm doing this! Thankfully my sister and also one of my best friends are pitching in to create a GIANT yard sale! There is no telling how much STUFF will be on my front lawn this Saturday!

Right now I have over a dozen boxes ready to go for tomorrow. All priced and ready to go! Probably 6 of those boxes are just books! My husband and I spent a good bit of life collecting books for both leisure and for school. My philosophy is to basically get rid of it all! If I haven't opened the book or looked at the item in the last 6 months then it is gone!

Another side effect of this is my storage unit is nearly empty! Hopefully if I can get it completely emptied by the beginning of next week, then I can cancel my contract on the unit and save that money!

I mention all this because my hubby and I are focused on getting out of credit card and student loan debt in the next couple of years. Reducing our payments out (storage unit) and getting rid of excess items (yard sale) is just one of the steps to becoming debt-free! We currently rent and would both very much like to move and purchase a (nicer) home.

I'll share some pictures soon of our yard sale and let you know how much first time went!
