We do both in this house

  • Both depending on what it is. Little things like clothes we donate, big stuff like cribs/couches/etc we usually sell.

  • Donate mostly. We've sold a few big items on CL, but I hate selling things.

  • Donate, usually. For me, it's a huge headache to try to sell stuff, so I'll either cart it to a donation place or call for a pick up.

    If DH thinks it's worth selling, he tries to sell it.

    We've also left stuff on the curb for the garbage fairies. That works well, too.

  • A little of both. Usually donate though because I always think "who's going to buy this crap"

  • I have sold stuff before but for the last 2 or 3 years I donate to a thrift store for Hospice or give away on our local freecycle

  • If I have time, I do a yard sale. Lately, I give away on Freecycle or donate to the church or one of the local thrift stores.

  • We donate. A garage sale is a lot of work. Hubby has worked out trades on things too.

  • Most of the time I donate because it's not worth it to try to sell. It's stuff like clothes, or old toys that are still good, but just not worth the time and trouble to price and run a garage sale or whatever. If it's a bigger item, like an outgrown bike or a piece of furniture, I'll usually try to sell it.
