Selling More Stuff!

Garage Sale

I woke up feeling a little spunky yesterday and prepared for a good day.


My Garage Sale yesterday was more successful than I thought that it was going to be, especially since not one person came from 7:00 – 8:00? Anyhow, I was selling and giving stuff away left and right and made all sorts of new friends. I’m a terrible sales person. If I got to talking to somebody for a long time, I was like…..”You know what? Just take it. I’m donating everything that doesn’t sale anyhow.”

One lady and I started up a conversation about Book Club while she looked through some of my older books, then I came inside and got the Rosie Project, one of the books that I just finished, and gave it to her. She was so appreciative! Remember the Random Act of Kindness I said that I would do the other day? Well, I tried to do that yesterday. 🙂

Food and Beverage

I ate a breakfast full of protein before I opened up the Garage door,

I found this creamer at Whole Foods and gave it a try yesterday. 2 T. = 1 SmartPoint



I closed up for lunch and went to Whole Foods. It was cold and rainy, and all I could think about was the Turkey Chili I saw on their Hot Bar the day before. I ended up getting some fish and steamed broccoli too.

I went to a friends house for two beers for our Friday Happy Hour.

For dinner, Mike and I went out. I was craving my Shrimp Fajita’s, and they were perfect! I like to order them with No Beans, No Rice, Extra Fajita Veggies, Corn Tortilla’s, and extra Guac. They don’t usually come out that way. They either come out with random steamed veggies (broccoli, carrots, etc) or they come out with one extra slice of bell pepper and lots of onions.

Last night, perfection! They came out with tons of extra peppers, the shrimp was perfect, and they forgot the tortilla’s, which was perfect because I usually don’t want them anyhow. I drank lots of water with dinner and I didn’t eat ANY of the chips and salsa.

Okay, I gotta go sell more stuff!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 7 SP

Scrambled Egg Whites and Veggies with a little Sweet Potato and Fruit. Coffee with Coconut/Almond Milk Creamer




Lunch – 8 SP

1 Cup Turkey Chili, Fish, Broccoli

    Oh my gosh Ronda, you should see my dad’s house. He and my stepmom emailed American Pickers to see if they want to come hunt. He’s got a lot of cool stuff. And….they don’t seem to have that rule, One in, One out.

    Have I shared a picture of my grandma’s piano that is in our living room? The reason that I got it is that my dad bought a Player Piano and needed a place for grandmas. I’m like….I want it! I want it! So..I got it. 🙂 The room doesn’t look crowded, just cozy.

    Happy to hear from you!

  2. what fun it would be to go to your!! As we love the same stuff, we could just move our treasures from one house to another!!! However, my husband and I (well, I say “I” just so it doesn’t sound like he’ssuch a meanie, but really he’s just him!!) have a rule: “nothing in, without something going out” when it comes to buying stuff! …I haven’t told him I’ve found an old upright piano yet…. I know just where I want to put it, I can easily get rid of the side table where it will go, but I also think it would involve having to replace my two big brown leather chairs (that are basically brand new) with a smaller version so the room won’t look so crowded. As you know, I LOVE BUYING CHAIRS…. buying chairs is not the problem – its trying to justify getting rid of the almost new ones I have…. such problems…. =) hugs, ronda
