    Since I'm having a yard sale October 6 & 7, I thought this might be a good opportunity to earn a little bit of cash for the IEFF petty cash fund. (money to use towards copies, EZ-Up, event entry fees, and such)

    Please bring any items you want to get rid of (not necessarily SW stuff, anything that you don't want and were planning on donating to Goodwill anyway) to the September 30 meeting. Any money made from these items at my yard sale goes into the IEFF kitty. That's it. No work for the group (I'm gonna be doing it anyway); you'll get rid of some unwanted clutter, cloths, crap; no money comes out of anybody's pocket. Win-Win-Win!

    AaS, ask Mrs. AaS. Not to stereo type us women folk, but we almost always have stuff to get rid of! (gotta make room for the new goodies)

    So, come on folks, start cleaning out those closets for the IEFF!

    Remember, this is NOT a Star Wars sale, it's a YARD SALE. Your junk is another persons treasure! My friend and I always end up making over $1000 between us at every two day yard sale we have.

    Bring me your "stuff" at the September 30 meeting and I'll sell it for the IEFF the following weekend.

    I might have a couple of things, but in the last 2 months I've cleaned out my storage unit and been working on my garage and I gave so much stuff to good will and a small church here in town, I really have gotten rid of most everything that I didn't have room for or no longer needed.

    Hey Gang, I hope everyone is going through their closets and under the beds to gather things for the yard sale. Remember, you'll need to bring them to the meeting next weekend.

    I sorted out the closet at the weekend. I've got a couple of board games to get rid off and now GP is cancelled I have an Alien Costume to throw in too.

    Not got much to get rid of cos we throw most stuff to the goodwill usually.

    What about old clothes, shoes? What about stuff that doesn't sell?

    Clothes, shoes, toys, books, nick-nacks, furniture... whatever! You'd be amazed what sells at yard sales. If somebody wants something back if it doesn't sell, just let me know (write it down) and I'll save it. Anything that doesn't sell will be donated to a local thrift store that supports mentally challenged adults.

    My friend and I've been having 2 yard sales a year for the past 4 years. Even after all those sales, what people buy still amazes me! If you advertise, they will come. If you put it out, they will buy it![face_money_eyes]

    This is a family friendly yard sale. Those types of pix wouldn't be appropriate. Blackmail might work, though? Who can get to DH first to get the photos? If it's me, get the checkbook ready!! [face_money_eyes]

    As of last night, the IEFF officially has credits! [face_dancing] A whole 15 of them!! [face_money_eyes] That's better than a punch in the eye! [face_beatup] There are still 2 more days left for the yard sale so I'm expecting great things. HSF and Delta, I didn't ever hear back from either of you on whether you might have an item or two to donate.

    The IEFF has a total of 30 credits to it's name. Not much, but at least now I have some credits to "keep".
