Just received an email from a pal this morning:
“I was going to have a garage sale. Then I wasn’t. Then I was. And now I’m not again. Instead, I’m just giving my stuff away to peeps I know. The front room is filling with perfectly lovely stuff that I simply don’t need/want/cant be bothered packing and I’ll be throwing open the doors to friends this Sunday from 1-3pm and you can help yourself to whatever you might like.”
She also noted that “if you see something that you once gave me as a gift in amongst all this, please don’t be offended”.
I love my pals strategy in lightening the load as she wanders toward more travel and not-tied-down choices. Have you ever done something like this? Or does the thought fill you with terror? Or have you been sprung disposing of a gift perhaps?
