You Sold What???

Pride is what you feel when your kids raise $271 conducting a yard sale. Panic is what you feel when you discover your car is missing.

It’s Spring and yard sales are popping up everywhere. There is a fine line between yard sale merchandise and trash. It’s usually measured by how close the ‘merchandise’ is to the curb. Some people hoard stuff to sell at their yard sales. Unfortunately, the timing of their yard sale seems to be 30 years away.

I don’t like yard sales at all. I know people get extra cash that the IRS will never know about. I guess that’s cool but I’d rather donate it all to charitable organizations and get the tax write off. It’s a great way to be nearly certain that those items will end up with the people who need them most.

Some ‘yard sale people’ go to other yard sales, buy a bunch of stuff and then have their own sale with the same items and try to turn a profit. Instead of flipping houses, they flip trash. I know! I think there should be a reality show about flipping trash. I predict it would be a big hit. You go to a yard sale and buy everything. The person who earns the most profit gets a $1M prize. That would be fun!

  1. ” Some people hoard stuff to sell at their years sales. Unfortunately, the timing of their yard sale seems to be 30 years away.” {Dead from laughing!} That’s like my family. Nobody understands why I have adopted the Marie Kondo method of getting rid of clutter. It’s like a huge weight lifted. I’d love to have a blowout yard sale with everyone’s (dad’s) belongings.

    1. Thanks! I once had a do it yourself yard sale. I put everything on a table with a coffee can on it with a taped note reading ‘put what you think it’s worth in the can and left for the weekend. When I returned, everything was gone, including the table. To my surprise, the coffee can was sitting in the yard with more than $400 in it. I was pleasantly stunned.
