My neighborhood had a garage sale this past Saturday so I decided to participate instead of donating my items like I usually do. Was it worth my time and effort? Absolutely not. It was my first and LAST garage sale. I’ve always felt that it’s just not worth the time you have to spend sorting and pricing the items and still have to deal with the items you don’t sell. I spent about 3 hours on Friday putting the items out and pricing them and then had to be up early on Saturday because the garage sale started at 7am. At noon on Saturday I decided to call it quits and packed up the many remaining items that didn’t sell to donate to charity. I know that some people make a lot of money on garage sales but the little I made was just not worth my time. I was better off donating everything to charity and taking the tax deduction. What’s your opinion on garage sales?
