My yard sales usually start several months in advance. The planning, I mean. I start putting stuff in boxes labeled “yard sale” and tell my parents to start going through their stuff to put aside for me. I periodically go through my closet and take clothes off hangers that I’d like to find a new home but don’t rate me sending them on to ThredUp, usually due to a ripped out size tag or an off-brand name.
When I finally have a sufficient amount of “stuff”, I check our calendar and stop by the local newspaper to place an ad. Yes, our community has a Buy/Sell/Trade FaceBook page – more than one actually – but there are some things that seem to sell better when people can touch & see in person.
I think that I will hold one more sale before the weather grows too cold and then donate the remainder to the local community closet.
