My neighborhood is having a community Garage Sale this weekend. I saw the sign on my drive to work. I never participate in these sorts of things because I’m generally freaked out by strangers milling around my garage. However, I decided that I would participate this weekend in the name of (financial) science. It’s Eat What You Earn Weekend. Okay, I made that up. But why not?
We are going to use the money we make in this impromptu Garage Sale to pay for dinner on Saturday night. If we make $20, then we eat cheap. If we make $150, then I’ll be calling a cab…kidding.
