I'm getting ready for a yard sale

My mil is having a yard sale and I get to be a part of it. We're trying to sell some stuff so we can have more spending cash when the whole family goes to the beach in a couple of weeks.

So I started going through closets, the shed, and my pantry (which houses much more than food) looking for things that I can get rid of. Out in the shed I found my Grandma's Ronco Food Dehydrator. Wow, what a find; still in the box and everything.

"Are you going to sell that at the yard sale?", my husband asks?

"No!, I'm going to make you banana chips, apple rings, and beef jerky!!!", I proudly pronounce! And I have too. Currently, I'm working on pineapple. I love my "new" dehydrator.

Then I worked my way through the pantry and I found my mom's old bread machine.

"Are you going to sell that at the yard sale?", my husband asks?

"No!, I'm going to make you homemade bread!", I proudly pronounce! And I have done that too, two delicious loaves. I've had to use my weekly points allowance for that but it was sooo worth it.

I also found a "whirly popper" my grandma had. It's the coolest thing. It's a pot with a cool lid on it to pop popcorn on your stove. But instead of shaking the pan around to keep the kernels from burning it has the nob you turn and that spins the metal hands on the bottom of the pan. I seriously made popcorn in under four minutes using this pot!

"Are you going to sell that at the yard sale?", my husband asks?
"No!, I'm making spectacular popcorn with this bad boy!"

So needless to say, I haven't found much to sell at the yard sale. I'll keep looking but at the rate I'm going it doesn't look good.

You sound like me, I keep everything, but I use most of it so thats ok, right???
I have a food dehydrator but I have never been brave enough to try it. I will have to give it a try.
