My community garage sale is next weekend!
I need to blog about this because I need the accountability for actually getting things ready to go and showing up at 6 a.m.
I’ve been going crazy this winter because we have too much stuff in our apartment and I just can’t wait to get rid of some stuff!
Earlier, I said that I would try to sell some things on eBay first, and then take the leftovers to the sale, and then the leftovers from that to Goodwill.
I’m going to revise that somewhat.
I don’t want to mess with seller’s fees on cheap-o items.
So, I think I’ll take it all to the rummage sale first, and for higher-end small things (that I hope to fetch $20+ or so), I’ll sell those on eBay afterwards. And, I’ll still take a bunch of things to donate.
For some people, it works out better financially to donate items and write them off as a tax deduction. We won’t be itemizing our taxes for 2008, since for now, the standard deduction is better for us. So, I’m hoping to make a few bucks at the sale.
Question for seasoned rummage sellers: How much change should I have on hand and in what denomination? Do you have any other tips for me?
