Estate Sale: Day One

Wow, what a success!

We were out WAY too late last night, but for a good cause: we got to see Jay and Brad’s respective bands play out @ Exit 6C and had a rockin’ good time. I got to sleep at about 4:30. At 6:00, I had to get up and go to training…seems I needed some additional role-playing experience since I haven’t sold any AT&T landline products this month. Meh.

Anyway, part of the reason I was up so late was because I did a little work once we got home, including placing our Estate Sale signs out and about. Might as well get it done while the roads are calm, eh? Well, we had an unintentional side effect with that. Seems the fact that no time was displayed caused Indi to get awoken at 7 AM via doorbell due to the fact that the signs had no time informaiton on ’em. Whoops.

Anyway, it was a total gangbusters day! We sold a ton of stuff. The master bedroom is completely empty and all other rooms are seriously low. We raised more than $3,000! So excited!

Now we are staying with Indi’s folks down the street. I just got the Wi-Fi running so I wanted to check in. Tomorrow’s another sale day, hopefully just as good.
