Is October too late for a yard sale?

My husband had back surgery, so ALL of our summer plans went out the window. I want to have a yard sale...especially since I've been stockpiling a mountain of stuff to sell all year and we have to do SOMETHING with it. I just don't want to wait too long or it's too cold for people to want to come buy! :( What do you think?

  • I think if you get a weekend with nice weather, people will love to stop for one last yard sale of the year.

  • perfect time for a yard sale! "end of the year sale" the weather is cool, yes, but it's not mitten weather ya know? it feels great outside and a yard sale is a great excuse to be outside and find some great deals!

  • Go for it. You'll have less competition than in the summer.

  • I have been wondering the same thing.....In Minnesota it's hard to predict the outcome of each day. July was cold and September was hot. Go figure! lol
