  • Probably not this year. In years past, I was on a hundred mile garage sale route over Memorial Day weekend. Last year, in two days, I made over $400.00! I don't think I can top that now, plus, I think I got rid of most of what I needed. LOL! Garage sales are a lot of work... very interesting people stopping by! Oh and it was soooo hot!

  • I like going but I hate having them, I usually just drop off stuff at goodwill instead.

  • I plan on donating to Goodwill rather than a gs

  • Nope, I don't go to them, and I do NOT like having them.. I will be donating, and throwing A LOT away this spring.

  • My neighborhood has one every spring and fall. It's a lot of work, but we generally get a lot of people coming through and it cleans out our house! My kids set up a coffee and doughnuts stand on the corner and make lots of money. Ours are in April and then again in October. I don't generally go to them, but we usually participate in them at least once/year.

  • I *should* have one, or 5 lol, but I doubt I will. I live in an apartment complex, so we could probably get rid of everything we need to, but I really don't feel like going to the HUGE trouble of having a yard sale. Maybe I'll just take it all to Good will or something. lol
