Clear Out Your Clutter

It may feel like summer outside, but the calendar is officially proclaiming spring. I love spring, for the promise of fresh beginnings, for shedding off layers, and for seeing more of the neighbors again. I also love it for cleaning. To put away the coats, organize the garage, and renew the landscaping are all welcome chores. I especially relish the glorious results of cleaning that are often found in garage and attic sales that will quickly be popping up. The time is here to give away, hunt for the unusual, and grasp the bargains of secondhand goods.

Once upon a time I enjoyed hosting my own garage sales. The work it demanded was well worth the reward of the cash I received in return. With three kids now, you couldn’t pay me to hold my own sale. Thankfully, a local church, Faith Church on Hamlin Road, hosts a big attic sale every year to kick off the season. I love this sale because they pick up anything you want to donate, but can’t transport yourself. It’s also nice to not have to worry about the weather since it is held inside. Every year our family donates to this sale, but we in return find some incredible deals and unique things for everyone in our family.

The Attic Sale proceeds last year were able to provide 25 scholarships for local kids to attend summer day camp. This year they hope to exceed that number, as well as donating to other local and international organizations that specifically benefit children. The sale is happening this Saturday, March 24th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at 160 West Hamlin Road.

Clear out, or clean up with this great event! If you have any questions, or are interested in donating to the sale, please contact Faith Church at 248-651-3535 or email at
