It’s finally here.  The day you’ve been working towards is here.  It’s consignment sale drop-off day. 
Woo hoo!
I recommend loading your car the evening before the sale if at all possible.  You will probably be unloading everything yourself, so any help you can get in loading the car the night before will be appreciated.  Your back will thank you tomorrow.
Start by emptying everything out of your car or truck.  You’ll probably need every inch of space.  Take a few minutes to clean up any dirt that might get on your items.  You’ve been working so hard to prepare all your items to sell at the consignment sale.  It would be a shame for anything to get dirty now.  If it’s dirty, it may not be accepted at check in and it certainly won’t sell as well.

Then load the tubs and boxes in first. These can be loaded the farthest into the center of the car.  You’ll be able to use the handles to pull them out easily.

 Load any large or awkward items closest to the door to make it easier for you to remove by yourself.  Or if your sale has a large item drop-off area, you can drop it off first and then go park to unload the rest of your items.

Lastly lay your bags of clothing on top and around everything else.  Just make sure that your clothing is protected by the plastic bags so they don’t get dirty.
Here’s what you’re working towards.  A car loaded with items you no longer need.

Congratulations!  You’re done.  You’ve graduated!  Now go get all that stuff delivered.  And enjoy receiving your check in a week or so.
