{help my ears}

i'm getting ready for a garage sale. out with the old! out! out!

our house, as i've mentioned before, is 480 square feet. there's a place where i can stand and see all of the rooms {excluding the basement} at once. this is the kind of space that i need--it requires me to constantly purge.

out with the old! out! out!

so. the process of getting ready for a garage sale is maybe a little daunting. but the very very first thing on my list of important preparatory things to do today is make mix tapes so that we don't get bored sitting on the lawn in the quiet, and so that we feel summery, and so that the rain doesn't make us lose heart by noon.

here's the beginnings. if you have anything to add, by all means: the comments section is your oyster.

it's almost summer, i suppose. by suzy krause on Grooveshark

  1. We are having a garage sale this weekend too. Good luck with yours! As I was rummaging through things I was amazed at what all I have kept over the years.

  3. "Don't Think Twice" as done by Mike Ness. Even though it's a breakup song, it never fails to make me feel awesome.

  5. i don't know if you saw my post about these guys, but since i am currently obsessed, i cannot help but mentioning once again the asteroids galaxy tour. they are spunky and poppy and, well, the opposite of boring. so, perfect for garage sales. more specifically, i highly suggest "suburban space invader" and/or "the golden age." good luck with your sale! purging is hard work :/ you can do it!
