Pass it to your right.


I love a good yard sale. And today was our village’s annual yard sale day! So, I set my alarm to get up early. I wanted to have a cup of coffee and hit the road to get the best bargains.

Here’s what I bought:

  • cookie press – $.50
  • lava lamp – $.75
  • box of very cool blocks (on wheels) – can’t say. it’s a gift for one of my readers’ kids
  • Catcher in the Rye – $.10
  • 4 mysteries (for Andrew & Alice) – $1.50
  • Huge (and I mean huge) box of Lego – $10
  • can opener (for cat food!) – $.10
  • Camelback water thingy – $2
  • Farmers Almanac – free
  • Donut – $1 (for Reed)
  • GO (the game) – $4

And the amount of fun I had in the 2 hours we drove and walked around?

Priceless.

As much as I love this stuff, I will never forget this guy Glenn I used to know in New York who had what I thought was the very best idea. He said that every year, on some specified day, everyone – I mean everyone – should pass their junk to the right. You’d get new junk from your neighbor on the left.

What a great way to get rid of your stuff!

One man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Right?

Who’s game?

  1. I just joined freecycle.org. Anyone can have the junk that others post, as long as they pick it up. I gave away refrigerator water filters that were sent to us, but didn’t fit our fridge, and the company didn’t want them back. Someone got a great deal, that was worth nothing to us. One man’s junk is another man’s treasure.

  2. We’re having our community yard sale in two weeks. Rob wants to sell stuff, I want to buy stuff. I think we’re going to have to split up!

    I second the Freecycle recommendation. I was on it in Virginia and get some amazing things there.

  3. Suppose you now have a solid hosting provider and
    offers amazing service but still your page speed loading time is much more.
    Search engines are far more ‘intelligent’ today and effective SEO requires actual
    meaningful content pages, social networking, articles
    submissions, and a focused marketing effort.
    SEO and web developer professionals vary on the prescribed keyword density, usually ranging from a one to three percent density rate.
