Ashamed of Myself

So the Jetplanes are having a yard sale this coming weekend, and the house is in full yard sale mode. The garage has been overtaken and Mrs. Jetplane's stuff is all there in its obscene glory.

Okay, I know that I have a ridiculous amount of clothes, shoes, purses, etc. But honestly, I didn't really understand the full magnitude of the situation here. I guess I've always just cleared out a bag or two of clothes and dropped them off to goodwill without a lot of thought. But now, really seeing it and getting rid of it, OMG people.

I'm still without my laptop or I'd show you what I'm talking about. I hope someone buys some of these clothes because there is some seriously good stuff here - 2 formal dresses, about 15 purses, luggage, 20 pairs of shoes (5 of which have never been worn...yes the shame), BR jackets, BR shirts, crap load of Old Navy, F21, jewelry, unopened stationary, Columbia fleeces and coats, cookware, home decor, etc. etc.

I'm totally ashamed of myself and the amount of crap I have. Mr. Jetplane and I had a talk last night, I'm going to really think about my clothing purchases before I make them. I'm going to try my best.

Pray for me and my shopping addiction... And if you're in Pcola.... WE'RE HAVING A YARD SALE THIS WEEKEND.... PLEASE BUY OUR STUFF.

Ah! I was just in Pensacola - is that where you are?! My fiance was on TDY so we drove down there for the weekend. I would've stopped by to peruse (and buy!) your stuff! good luck with the sale :)

Seriously is it possible to break a shopping addiction? If you do please let me know because I have the same problem.

Oh my do I know what you are talking about! My hubby and I had TWO yard sales already this spring just to get rid of stuff... It's crazy!

Good luck with the sale!

I'm right there with you. we're having a yard sale next weekend. By the way, how are you displaying the clothes? Do you have a table or some sort of clothes rack?

I wish I were in Pensacola! I hope that you have good luck selling your things. I've been really trying to reel in the spending/shopping as well-- it's a difficult habit to break, especially when you have the money to spend. We're increasing our auto transfers to savings to tighten things up.

Oh, no - yard sales are a LOT of work but it will be totally worth it when you have cleaned out your closet and have room for soooo much more. Haha!

What are you going to do with the money from the yard sale? Buy more clothes? :)

Aly said...

I wish I was there, I would buy your clothes!

Good luck with your sale. I bet you have some awesome stuff to sell but a 12 hour drive to peruse is out of the question for me. I always go through my closet before I shop so I don't buy too much of the same thing and make a list. Last time I did NOT do this, I bought three pairs of shorts before I pulled out my summer clothes box.. whoops. Good luck this weekend!

Where exactly do you live in Pensacola? I lived there, and have a very good friend that does yard sales every weekend- I'll be sure to send her to yours! You will both end up as winners, it sounds like! Good luck!
