Did my bootsale today

I was up at 5am to go to the car bootsale, this is a bit like a yard sale but you go to a specific field (normally) pay £12 (about $18) set your stall up and sell all your junk!

I made the princely sum of £225 (about $345) less my costs my "profit" was £175 and almost everything I didn't sell I gave to charity so I came back with nothing (apart from 2 Dorothy Koomson books and a Jodi Picoult which cost me 60p (about $1)

We are going on holiday tomorrow and at the moment we're a bit financially embarrassed so it should cover most of our spending money, private school fee's are killing us.

The scale said 16st 4lb again, 228lbs, I didn't have a great day yesterday and its my TOM so not so bad really, would like to get under 16st soon.

Anyway, won't be blogging for a while as we're away until Friday, keep well, will miss you all!!


  1. Sure wish we had the time to put together a garage sale. We have donated soooo much stuff just to keep it out of the "move to the new house" pile.

    Congrats on having a successful bootsale!

  2. Congrats on your successful sale. Hope you see the number on the scale that you want soon.

  3. Isn't it great to get rid of clutter - I dropped off 5 boxes of books for a charity sale last week - feels good to be losing that extra as well as the extra weight!

  4. Hope you have a great trip and the scales become nicer after TOM goes away!
