Whenever I have a client who says she wants to do a yard sale, I always groan inwardly. I usually convince the client that a more expeditious route to achieving her goals would be to donate unwanted items or, in a couple of really cluttered cases, get a local auction service to come take away the stuff and sell it for her.
The one exception were friends who wanted to sell some valuable antiques. I helped them organize a yard sale featuring the antiques which brought him a nice chunk of money (close to eight grand). I blogged about it at the time.
On Unclutterer today my friend (and perhaps most frequent commenter), Geralin Thomas of Metropolitan Organizing in Cary, N.C. has contributed a fantastic post called Yard Sales: An unclutterer’s ultimate, how-to guide. As I commented on that blog, if I ever have a client who insists on having a yard sale, I’ll be sure and share this detailed post.
Happy Labor Day Weekend, folks. I’ll be taking Monday off of blogging.
