Do You Yard Sale?

Hello Lovelies,


As we're starting to pack up and prepare for the big move, there are some items we know we won't be taking with us... some of them clothes, some of them housewares, some of them furniture.


The preppy boyfriend wants to have a yardsale... but I'm sort of anti-yard sale. It's a lot of work, and we haven't ever really had a yard sale that was a big success... and I always feel so awkward camped in my front yard, or my garage, surrounded by all the stuff I don't want watching strangers walk through and turn their nose up at my cast offs... the whole process just feels weird to me.


The preppy boyfriend will probably win, just because the fewer trips I have to make hauling stuff to Good Will, the better.... 


But, what about ya'll? Do ya'll yard sale?

I sort of agree with you on this one...Not that there is anything wrong with a yard sale...I guess it depends on the situation but it is a lot of work for not a lot of cash. I have been into selling stuff on ebay and have been pretty successful doing that...

While I Love to poke around other people's yard sales, I'm a lazy Goodwill donater myself.

I have never had one but I love going to them! If you think the item is worth it sell it here or on Craigs list.

I've never lived in a place where we could have a yard sale, and my parents lived way out in the country, so it wasn't worth it. Whenever I've had to get rid of stuff, I post it on CraigsList (if I'm selling it) or Freecycle (if I'm just giving it away). Freecycle is kind of nice because I just post something, then say, "It'll be in a bag on the porch from this time to this time - if you want it, email me for the address and come pick it up!

We had a garage sale before we moved and yes it was awkward and I was still young at the time! You'll have to let us know what happens!

I used to yard sale, but it is so much work! The whole idea of pricing everything and dealing with people trying to bargain with you and having to get up so early just doesn't sound as appealing anymore.
I hope you enjoy your weekend, yard sale or no yard sale!

Yard sales are SO MUCH work. BUT ... if your boyfriend wants to do the work, why not enjoy the $$ that comes from it?!
