I’ve also written about donating your stuff and taking the tax writeoff.
But sometimes you get the urge to drag everything out on your driveway, put up a sign, and then trade your stuff for money with the strangers who drop by.
My mom and I did exactly that last month.
My net proceeds totaled $318. That went into my found money pool.
To that I added:
- A $65 fertilizer rebate
- A $10 check from Angie’s List for writing a quick review of our doctor
That brings this found money update total to $393.
I wrote on Facebook that having a garage sale is like the pain of childbirth: you swear never again until the memory fades and you think, “that wasn’t so bad.”
I’m currently in the “never again” phase.
Have you had a garage sale this summer? Or is the pain of your last one still too real?
