The weekend is here, the moving sale is finally done! We worked hard Friday and Saturday morning, got rid of most of our "inventory" and we are about $700 richer. Albeit, the majority of our stuff is now in a truck on it's way down to Mexico........it doesn't matter to me, we got rid of what we needed to and I have a wad of cash in my pocket (well actually it's in a plastic box). Here is the final picture of what was left when we closed up shop at noon:
That's it, pretty cool huh? (Everything behind the large cardboard box we are keeping) There are several bags of clothes which we will be donating to an organization that provides necessities to the homeless that have served in the military. The rest of it will be going to Salvation Army or Goodwill depending on which one can pick it up the fastest.
Now that we are done with the moving sale we can enjoy the rest of the weekend! I am going to relax and spend some time with my family before we really have to get crackin' on Monday. You see, the movers arrive on Friday to load all of our possessions onto a truck. We have to be completely packed and ready to go on Friday morning. They will be meeting us at the new house to unload on Sunday so that gives us all day Saturday to do the post move clean, then drive all the way to Phoenix. It's gonna be a busy week so I am gonna rest up!
This weekend Fazoli's is offering free kid's meals all weekend. That's where we are going to have dinner tonight because we have all worked hard and we deserve it! Let's face it, we aren't going to be eating out much in the near future or at least until our "reinvention" is complete. Although we have a financial cushion saved to prepare us for this drought of income, we intend to live as though we are poor until the drought is over. We may as well treat ourselves one last time even if it is just a little Italian fast food place with free kids meals (the frugal monster in me can't help it!).
So that's it, Welcome to the Weekend Everyone! Sorry it's a little bit late, I plan on enjoying mine, I hope you do too!
