Get started on Summer by attending or hosting a Rummage sale. Teach your kids about saving money and making money for things they want. This summer sell toys, clothes and things you no longer need. Look through closets and find things that are in good condition for sale. "Someone else's junk is another persons treasures." You may find that you will feel lighter at home. Which means easier clean up time and a better summer. Of course the extra money will help you pay for the movies or dinner at a local restaurant.
The field trip on this experience is finding things you have not used in a long time and getting rid of them. To let go of things that are not important is sometimes the hardest thing to do. But remember you can take a picture of your item and still keep it in your heart. You don't need to live in a pile of unloved or unused items. Let go right now and start a clean summer with extra summer cash. Let me know how you do.
I am on my third day of Goodwill runs and my house already feels lighter.

Summer events - Rummage Sale
Hi, My name is Alma Bosek. I live in Southern California with my loving my husband and kids. Writing has always been my passion. I can recall being a writer as early as eight years old. I speak two languages and can understand three. Let me explain. My parent's first language is Tarasco, a language spoken by Indigenous Mexican people that are from the state of Michoacan. Spanish was a second language for my folks and I. My folks wanted my life to be more American, so they did not allow me to speak Tarasco. Tarasco was spoken so frequently that I learned to understand key phrases and directions. This is why I only speak two languages. My unique upbringing has given me an advantage on family, fashion, food and travel. If that isn't enough my household is filled with American/Euro traditions and food. All of it translates into a wonderful life. Follow us on the blog as I share great family moments.
