tag sale

This weekend I'm having my first yard sale at our house and two of my friends are bringing over some of their stuff to sell, too. I'm actually pretty excited about it, to 1) get rid of stuff, 2) make some extra cash, and 3) set up and organize the display. I've been reading all the tips and tricks to having a successful sale, so I think I'm ready - we even have refreshments and music (radio) planned so it's basically a party on my lawn this Saturday.
