One Man’s Junk is Another Man’s Treasure

Garage sale homeschooling. That’s what I would like to think of our garage sale experience two weekends ago. Elijah got to put his math skills into practice. He earned 1,500 pesos for selling toys. The other boys sorted through their old things and put prices on each item.

This was a collaborative effort between Tan-Chis and Mendozas that turned into a fun bonding day for all of us. Our own family didn’t earn much, just 7k at the end of the day but hey, people were willing to buy our junk and our home was majorly de-cluttered. Plus, Elijah learned how hard it is to make money. He was trying to convince a whole lot of people to buy our old toys and I thought he did a great job.

We can’t wait to do this again!

  1. Hi Joy,
    When you will hold another garage sale? I want to buy some old toys for my son. :)
    Godbless. Thanks so much.

    A bit off-topic: WHOA! Elijah grew! (At least based on the pictures!)

  3. OMG! I should’ve known you’re having a garage sale! I’d like to buy pre-loved items that I can use to homeschool my 3-year old girl. :)
