My mother-in-law recently moved out of her two-bedroom condo and into a one bedroom, one bath assisted living facility. Needless to say, there were years and years of “stuff” that we all tend to accumulate as the years roll by no matter who or how old we become. So, my wife decided to hold a garage sale for all the things that wouldn’t fit into her mom’s new living space as well as some things we had that were no longer needed or even knew we actually possessed.

Of course, I was selected as the designated helper, and so the day before the sale was spent setting everything up and doing all those things necessary to making it a successful sale.
