Facebook Garage Sale

Facebook is a strange, strange place.  There is a facebook page for the the county I live in garage sale.  "******* County, IL Garage Sale" 

Some of the stuff on there is hilarious.  One lady wanted to sell a litter box for $5. Some one else was trying to sell some VHS tapes.  One person was trying to sell empty wine bottles.  Another lady has put a big ole heavy camper on there about 100 times.  People are trying to sell kids clothes, purses, couches, ect.  Some people are just trying to advertise their actual garage sale.

Matt sold his three wheeler Tuesday night.  Not on the garage sale page, but in our front yard.  Hallelujah!

I think I'm going to advertise our pool on there.  I mean the pool was kinda a spur of the moment, impulse buy.  It was 110 degrees with like 80% humidity.  But, in reality, we are too busy to take care of a pool.  They need cleaned and chemicals added. Plus our neighbors tree blocks the sun by the time we are home in the evenings.

Last night someone was asking if anyone had any Verizon phones to sell.  I responded back to her.  I started out by saying, "Verizon Phones - I have a whole drawer full of Verizon phones."  We messaged back and forth and I'm selling her a phone for $20.  I only used it for about a month and I hated it because it was slow.  I told her that though.  She's an older lady so a slow phone might not be a bad thing.

I'm going to look in the closet tonight and see what other kind of junk I can get rid of.

Ah Facebook. You really can do just about everything. That is a good way to find a new phone or something like that. A big ticket item that you can get cheap because it's used. And no one puts that type of stuff out in a rummage sale since it's too easy for someone to steal it.

What?? $20 ? What a steal!

I need to have a garage sale but I wanna pay someone to do it for me. It's a nightmare!

This is why I'm addicted to Craigslist. Whenevr we are in a pinch for money, I look at DH and say, "alright, what can we sell?" It's been a lifesaver, all of our crap. People like junk!

lol! If anybody ever sees a glockenspiel or xylophone or other wierd instrument on there for not too much, tell me and I will get my mom to get it and mail it to me. The avalibility of junk isnt as good in the city. They call it vintage and mark it up.
