One Homeschooler’s Trash is Another Homeschooler’s Treasure
I’m excited for the weekend – more specifically I’m excited for this Monday, June the 1st. We are doing another A.T.I.C in the park, and if you are within driving distance to Pigeon Forge you really really really ought to make plans to show up.
A.T.I.C is basically a huge free garage sale. We used to do this at our church in California. Everybody is welcome to participate (even if they do not contribute). But here’s the basic gist of it:
You go thru your house and put all the stuff that you don’t want anymore in a big bag (or box), and then bring it to A.T.I.C and put lay it out on the different tables. Boy clothes, girl clothes, mom clothes, dad clothes, books, shoes, pots, pans, curtains, nick nacks, roller skates – whatever. And then you browse thru the tables and take whatever you want and as much as you want that others have brought. It’s a real keen idea, eh?
This used to be a real life-saver for our family back in Cali. Our church actually did this every month and my kids always had clothes, schoolbooks, etc; and we always had things to contribute because we were always outgrowing things. The best part is that EVERYTHING IS FREE.
Plus it’s fun to visit with everyone who shows up. Try and make it! If you want more details email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
June 1 from 11 – 2 Pigeon Forge City Park Pavillon #2.
