Another man's treasure now...

Last weekend hubby and I took part in our community's garage sale. It's a great chance to catch up with the neighbours, have them snoop through your possessions, hear the latest gossip, you know, all those things hubby loves so much.

The weather wasn't the greatest, but there were enough people around. We got rid of a tonne of junk, but we still have a buttload more.

Although he is talking about adding two of our living room chairs, a futon, coffee table and end tables... we'll have no furniture left!

The weirdest thing was the reaction people had to our casset tapes. People were crazy for them. We ended up getting rid of over half of them. Alice Cooper? Gone. Styx? Gone. Megadeth? Gone. Zeppelin? Gone. C'mon people, what are you going to do with those? Do you even have tape players anymore?
