Organizing Toys for Sale and Planning for Future

I'm finally making some progress in my grand reorganization project! I had three days off and found some time to bag up more preschooler toys. I even had to go buy more bags. Then I set up the room in a semi-organized way. I enlisted the help of my husband to take down all the shelves from the walls in the two daycare rooms.
It's been quite a challenge to sort everything out. My next step is to price everything. There are lots of people waiting patiently for me to "open" the sale so I'm working as fast as I can. I bought price stickers at the store and have started pricing the toys. After I get the toys thinned out, it'll be time for a household garage sale too.
While taking down shelves and cabinets, we decided we will definitely need to paint the interior of the house before we put it up for sale. Since we're so busy, we decided we'll hire a painter to do the walls and then a carpet cleaning company to fix the carpets. There is so much carpeting in this house and I'd rather hire out the job. Between the preschoolers, the teenagers and the dog walking all over the carpets constantly, I'm sure it'll be a dirty task. My old carpet cleaner broke and I hope to have wood floors in the next house, so I don't want to buy a new one.
It's so exciting to see all the changes taking place because even though it is the end of one part of my life, it's also the beginning of a brand new chapter! Stay tuned for updates!


  1. Don't forget when you sale the toys and other items. It's a CASH only sale. You don't want to take any more checks. :)

  2. It sounds like you are making great progress! I wish I was in the area for your upcoming sale! It's nice that you already have biyers interested. I hope that your sale and home touch ups fulfill your intended goals! Have a nice weekend!

  3. Lol, please forgive my typos on the last comment. I spelled buyers as biyers. Either way to touchy phone keypad or a tired lady here! Love for you to visit over at http://www.mommiesandbeyond.com I'd love to hear your thoughts on the controversial Reviewer Card.
