US 40 Statewide Garage Sale

This year the garage sale was not fun at all. We fought downpours almost everyday. Severe thunderstorms with winds of up to 40-50 mph. We had to tie our 10x20 tents to the blazer and one to the van. My husband who took the week off to help me, stood inside one tent on a dresser to hold down the roofing during one of the storms. The heat was in the high 80s and the humidity was awful. We decided next year, we will have a garage sale at home. I lost a lot of money buying 3 new tents, tie downs, paying someone to help me set up, my husband taking off work etc. I prob came out even or lost money. It was not worth it.


  1. Boo! I wish I knew about this US 40 state wide garage sale it would have been right up my ally, but the rain doesn't sound fun! Looks like you had a lot of nice stuff!

  2. Sorry about all of the rain! It did look like they had a lot of neat stuff!

    I hope you have a wonderful week!


  3. Thank you. I was so upset over all the problems. This US 40 sale is every year. Next year I will be shopping, sounds like more fun!
