Garage sales...

I have one every year, and every year I say no more. I am hot and exhausted. But we made a good amount of money. We are going to do it again tomorrow. Hopefully all of this stuff goes away. We are moving in a month and so much I don't want to take to the new place.

Dh wants to do one (which means he wants me to do one!).  I would rather call Goodwill and have them take it all away!

I'm like Decca I'd just give it to Goodwill. It makes sense to sell it and get the money though.

I have never had a garage sale. It seems like it would a lot of work for little return.

Quoting Marti123:

It is, but it isn't. I just feel better trying to sell the things I paid for, then just donate it. I usually use the money towards the kids clothes for the next season. 

But boy is it a lot of work

I haven't had one in a while. Once I'm done with kids I'll have a giant one lol

I do one once a year at our city wide garage sale. It is alot of work, but I like getting the $$ :). What doesn't sell, then gets donated.

I haven't had one in a couple years. For me it's just too much of a hassle since I wouldn't end up selling much. I've been just donating the stuff I don't want or we don't use to Goodwill so it's not hanging around forever in the chance that I might decide to have a garage sale.
