Garage Sale...

or should I call it a yard sale because all the shi-ot we are wanting to sell won't fit in our garage because it is full of crap too? Hmmmmmmmmm


Some questions for you guys....
Do you think Halloween costumes will sell yet? (Are garage sale peeps checking out those yet?)


Do I put my daughter's sun dresses/bubbles out this year or wait until next spring? (Which will give me more money honey?)


Do I try to sell some of the 'good' stuff on Ebay to get more money or is one just as good as the other these days?

This is my predicament these days...to do Ebay or not to do Ebay? I've not had too much luck and the prep time for Ebay with trying to think of some enticing description of my stuff and then finding the appropriate box and then getting to the dang post office...I'm tired just thinking about it.


But I do like the power of the mighty dollar.


I've also got a cute train comforter with shams and sheets that I could try to sell on Ebay but not sure?? I'll post a pic here:

And what do you price a high chair for? Exersaucer?
Pretty much all of my stuff is in really good shape, so let me know what you guys think!

I'm no expert, but I would say yes for Halloween costumes .. Old Navy just sent out their email promoting they they are in stock. I know here, people are cheap with most clothes, so I would ebay any clothes that you think should get good money. I would probably ebay the train comforter too. good luck!

If the halloween costumes are in excellent shape I would try Ebay. We just had a sale in June and it is amazing how people want your "stuff" for NOTHING!!! Another good option for the big baby items is a consignment shop if there is one in your area!! Sometimes is good to just get rid of and something is better than nothing!!!!!!

I gave up on garage sales because I always end up getting ticked off at people who just want me to give them my stuff. So now I just give it away, we need the tax break. It's a PITA to list everything, but it's not as big of a PITA as a garage sale.

My BFF is the garage sale empress and she always scored great halloween costumes all year round.

Good luck, tell us when you're having it and I'll stay on my knees that day praying for your success (and offering thanksgiving that it's not my garage sale!)

Depends. I think in life you can either save time or money. Not both. Yard sale is easier and less of a time commitment. Ebay is more time, but more money. Your call my friend. I say chuck it all at the yard sale and call it a day.

Except for the comforter set. I'd take that to consignment or Ebay...
