Talk To Me....

So T & I are in the beginning stages of planning a garage sale. And by beginning stages I mean we just decided to have one last week. We are trying to become more minimalists and get rid of stuff that we have no need for and haven’t touched in years.

I think the last garage sale I helped with was maybe in high school?!?! So since T & I are on the inexperienced side with this, we were wondering if any of you had tips/tricks for us? And what are things going for? CD’s, shoes. Purses, clothes, etc…. What is a reasonable price for stuff that is good quality?

Any tips on this would be MUCH appreciated! In the meantime I will be watching some episodes of Clean House to inspire me to start throwing stuff away and to see how to garage sale! Oh that Niecy Nash!


  1. Just a little tip, they make garage sale stickers at the dollar store. Like ones with .25,.50.,1.00, and 2.00 on them. They are great for pricing all the little odds and ends.

    Also Cd's are usually no more then 3.00.

    If you want to get rid of your stuff, just put them all in a box and mark the box with the price. People think they are getting a bargain when it's all together.

    Good Luck!

  2. Organization is key for a lot of things. People will lose interest or think it's dirty if they have to dig through random piles.

    I've based prices on what stuff goes for on eBay.

  3. I love Niecy Nash!

  4. Who wants a clean house? (I say that in my Niecy Nash voice while I am cleaning. Yes, I have a Niecy Nash voice.)

    I'm taking part in a neighborhood garage sale in two weeks. I am equally clueless. Good luck to you!

  5. That sticker idea is great - thanks! I also like the idea of using ebay as a reference!

    I don't really want a clean house....but holy crap we gots us alot of shit!!! Good luck twit!
