$20K Update - The BIG Rummage Sale

September 21st, 2015 at 06:57 am

The BIG rummage sale was last weekend and as usual it was crazy! We had beautiful weather (after an initial rain shower) and a great turnout! I won't have the breakdown ready for awhile while we are working on moving (and next week going to Denver!) but I do have the totals. Rummage sale as a whole did $8800!! MO and I did $3080!! We made over $1000 just on snacks! So I will get the breakdown up as soon as I can, but since I already have the money I wanted to get that part squared away.

We made $3080, we round it up to $3100. We are putting $1100 into our savings and taking $1000 each as our spending money to Denver next week. That will cover food, drinks, gambling, tailgating costs, shopping, etc. Hotels, flights and rental car have already been paid for.
Anything we bring home will go into the Mom Loan Savings account.

Current Balance $6,645.00
+$1100.00 3rd of Rummage Sale Money
Balance $7,745.00

Local Savings $1480.00
GC Savings $2540.00
Capital 360 Savings (US) $1450.00
Capital 360 Savings (Mom Payback Account)$1025.00
Capital 360 Savings (Rental Deposit Account) $1250.00
Total Savings = $7,745.00

    Is a rummage sale like a garage sale? How do you keep people from trying to constantly buy your reasonably priced item for like a quarter?

  5. Banker Gurl Says:

    Lena, yes a rummage sale is the same as a garage sale or a yard sale. We do have people occasionally wanting to barter, but for the most part we just tell them that everything is priced as marked and we won't go down on prices. If we have something that has been in several sales, or we really want to get rid of, then we will go down on the price.
