Most people's families get together to share Sunday dinners, maybe meet up at the lake or local hot spot. What does our extended family do? Have a garage sale. Yep. I know. Makes no sense at all that I haul my treasures 2 1/2 hours. Yes. You read right. 2 1/2 hours.
Why, oh why? It's definitely not about the cash. More moolah is spent on gas driving there and back than what is pulled in. But, we get to enjoy Aunt Angie's delish cinnamon rolls (do I dare mention I had two?), reminisce about all the goodies that are up for sale and question each other's decision to get rid of something.
I get to spend time with my cousins, my kiddos host a rockin' lemonade stand and we laugh at how impractical we are. Yes, it would be easier to donate it all. But we'd miss out on the memories of our quirky family time.
