Project Organization

Here is what I did today...all of these bins are full of clothes my three precious children have outgrown in the last 2 1/2 years! I went through and put the coordinating pieces together and organized it by size. Why? We are going to be moving soon and I am going to have a garage sale to try and "downsize" :) Has anyone else had a garage sale lately? Do you have some tips? I did a couple but they were several years ago. I am excited to get going though!


  1. I haven't had one, but I have a neighbor down the street who has one every day, all summer long. It's a wonder no one comes to buy their yard trash.

    Anyway, I've been wanting to have a one-day only yard sale and get rid of lots of things that we are holding on to, but never use. Please keep us informed of how it goes & offer any tips you can. Pictures, too!

  2. I've done a few before and some group ones too. My advice is to advertise well, craigslist is free and if there are any other free classifieds in your area advertise in them. Put up a lot of signs and have the address on them. Don't over price your stuff. People come looking for a bargain and don't want to pay much. Aim for a price lower than at thrift stores and be willing to negotiate. Would you rather get a couple bucks or end up donating it and getting nothing? Good Luck!!!

  3. Here is a great website on the topic -
