I’m taking part in a garage sale this week. However, I don’t really know what I’m doing. I’ve never participated in a garage sale before. Partially, because I have trouble parting with stuff, but also because I’ve never had enough stuff to sell to fill an entire garage. In the past, I’ve opted to sell a handful of things here and there on Craigslist and eBay.
But we finally hit a point with the kids, where we have an entire playroom in the basement filled with toys they have outgrown and no longer use. (Sound familiar?) Add the baby gear and clothes they’ve outgrown and I have a massive amount of stuff to purge. Since we’re pretty sure we are done having kids, I’m ready to part with the baby stuff.
The timing is perfect, since the moms group I belong to is coordinating a multi-family garage sale (and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity). So I have my stuff, my date, and location. Beyond that, I’m lost.
I know I have lots of frugal readers who are experts in the garage sale world. Now’s your chance to teach me everything I need to know about having a garage sale. Any and all tips are welcome, since I truly have no idea what I’m doing!
