Fragrant Aroma – NOT

There is absolutely nothing fragrant about a garage sale.  Well…there is, but certainly not good.  🙂

As you are reading today’s post, I am having a garage sale with my two daughters – complete with a lemonade stand operated by my 3 year-old granddaughter.  None of us are in the mood to have a garage sale.  In fact, we didn’t price a thing!  If you live in the area, come by and make an offer – we’re VERY motivated!

What does this have to do with romance?  To my husband – everything.  He loves a neat garage.  He loves order, but our garage has been filled with piles of garage sale bags for months.  I am finally making it happen, so I can bless my husband with the garage he’s been longing for.  I believe it will help him relax when he comes home in the evenings.

This has been my word for the year – declutter!  As a result, I joined The Clutter Diet, and I am proud to say I’ve lost 200 clutter pounds since the beginning of the year.  It has been very motivating, as Lorie gives bite-size assignments which are quite do-able, no matter how busy your schedule.

My goal is to have the garage completely restored in time for Valentine’s Day.  Who knows maybe it will be clean enough to eat out there….okay, that’s a stretch!  But one thing’s for sure – I am going to lose some serious clutter pounds this weekend!

What project have you been putting off that would bless your spouse if you were to finish it?

    Oh my goodness I am with you on this one. We have had two garage sales and both were very non successful. We did not have our hearts in it and we did not want to go to the effort of all the work. I have a spare bedroom that needs to be done and my den where I am sitting is becoming a mess, with a large mountain of ironing to get done.
    MOTIVATION is needed.

    I have given up on garage sales. However, our church does a semi-annual rummage (aka garage) sale with the proceeds going to support missions. The leftovers from the sale are given to a local ministry that gives away clothing and household items. Win – win – win situation. I don’t have to deal with a sale, the church makes money for missions and the local missions benefit. (By the way, the church doesn’t price. They sell clothing by the bag and other items are negotiated at check out.)
