I saw The Mysterious to the bus this morning for his first day of 3rd grade. I told him I’d upload the pictures so he’d get to see them if he checks MyselfBetter at school. Have a great day today, buddy!

We’re having our final yard sale of the season this weekend. Yard sales are a way we both pare down our possessions and make a bit of extra cash every summer. Our family tries for at least 3 every summer. The leftovers are then sent to benefit our local elementary school and fire station at their annual yard sale.
In the past, I’ve suggested to my kids that they should try and sell some things to make a bit of extra room AND money. I’ve always been met with whines and complaints… that is, until this year.
Both The Mysterious (age 9) AND The Adventure (age 3) were able to get reasonable boxes of JUNK (er… uhhh… I mean useful items) out of their rooms to be sold on Saturday. Below is what they’re getting rid of. I’m so proud of how easily this went with BOTH of them.

Good job guys!
How does your family pare down on possessions?
