Today’s Clean It Out Sale!

Oh my word – is it weird that I get a rush out of doing garage sales? I love the busyness and the bartering and watching old items find new use. It’s great all the way around.

It is also a LOT of work! We started with a garage that looked like this:

I know you can’t really tell but the boxes on all sides were about four or five deep in all directions.

Then we began by dragging boxes in every possible direction.

Okay, I know it still looks like a total mess in these pictures . . . that’s because – it was! It took us almost all day and selling a good chunk of what was out there in order to get things even remotely sorted and organized. If you come tomorrow it will look much better. In fact, it looked better when we got it put BACK into the garage at the end of the day. Ha!

All in all, I think the day was a success, and I know Cheryl and I are looking forward to doing this on a fairly regular basis.

If you are an avid garage saler in the DFW area – please send us an email at cleanitoutmckinney@gmail.com and we will add you to our mailing list to be alerted each time we hold a sale.

If you are overwhelmed and needing assistance cleaning out your junk drawers, cabinets, closets and rooms – email us and we’ll be glad to talk to you about the best way we can help you.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
