Hi, today is Saturday and I have nothing to do... so I decided to bring all my junk for sale... I put out the sign for "Garage Sale" and then everyone started to come and go so quickly. within 6 hours, everything that I have gone for 80%. I was so tired and hungry, so I decided to take everything back in the house and start to count the money. I was so surprised when I got $600. I counted again and again and AGAIN... and it still $600. I was like, OH MY GOD!!! my junk worst this much? now, I don't give away my stuff anymore... collect them and sale again... What about you? have you done with Garage sale? how much do you get ? Was it fun? this morning was so fun and easy going too... seem like, it is a lot better then my work place .... please share if you have any experience for Garage Sale, and if you have any advice please let me know... cuz I plan to do it again in the Future.

That is actually really wonderful to hear and congratulations on doing so well during your garage sale. This should be enough encouragement for not only yourself but for the rest of us to clean out our garages and put junk or things that we don't need for sale and see how much money we could sell. I am just curious and I hope it's alright for me to ask but what were you selling exactly smileonstar?

Hello, Harryt123. I sold, frig, lawn mover, old old TV(half of the screen didn't show picture and I sold that for $10), mostly Clothes... a lot of clothes, and kids clothes, shoes, some old or junk stuff that I dont need. Guess what? I sold everything out, really everything sold. only 6 hours I finished my sale and I was so surprised there is nothing left at all. Now, I collect all the thing that I dont need and put in my garage for my next sale... :)

You can make a casual earning like that even easier, but using ebay. That way you wont even have to get out of your chair ha ha .

I am not good with sale on ebay, plus I dont like Ebay either cuz they charge so much fee... listing fee, and final fee and not even include transaction fee when they pay for item yet (paypal fee). for garage sale, I dont pay a penny

My husband has yearly yard sales and makes really good money at them. Usually at least $600-1000. He collects what I consider crap all year long, you know, lawn mowers, motorcycler stuff, just men stuff I guess and then usually his sales are in August.

I would love to see $1000 for sure, but I dont think I can make it cuz I sold big items already and all i have now just clothes and household items
