Rummage, Yard, or Garage?

We have so much stuff.

Way back in January, I set a date in my planner to have a rummage sale on June 20th.  I was going to work on de-cluttering this room in February and that room in March...blah, blah, blah.  Though I haven't stuck to the plan exactly, I have gone through a number of areas in the house.

And we still have so much stuff.


I'm still planning to have that rummage sale, but now it's already May (gulp) and there's a lot left to be sorted through.  And we're trying to catch up on schoolwork.  And camp is starting up.  And...basically...I fear I'll run out of time.

So I should get off this blog and get back to work!  I only thought that if I made my intentions more public, I'll be more likely to carry them out.

So what do you call it: rummage sale, yard sale, or garage sale?

Have you ever had one?
Got any tips for me?

(Please pray that it doesn't rain here on June 20th.)


  1. I want to come to your rummage sale! Boys need clothes. :)

    1. I'd love for you to come, but I wasn't planning on having clothes there. Too putsy. I do have a small bag of Sam's out-grown things--mostly shirts & shorts--set aside. (That boy's pants almost never make it to bless someone else.) I had just offered that bag to someone else, but she may not need the clothes. If not, they're yours!

    2. They're yours! She's all set. =)

  2. I'll definently come to your yard sale!!!!! :D
    Um... I think I would call it a yard sale.... It depends on where it is going to be in your yard. Lydia told me she thinks it's going to be in the yard... Or something like that.

    1. Yeah, I think we'll have it in the front yard. You *could* call it a rummage sale though, since you might have to rummage through some stuff to find what you're looking for. My cousins on the East Coast call these "Tag Sales".
