Is it Time for a Garage Sale?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with QEC Internet Services

Spring is a great time for a garage sale to get rid of all those things you have accumulating in your home or office that you'll never plan to use or things you no longer want.   When my children were small, I used an annual garage sale as an opportunity to stash some extra cash to fund our summer vacation.

A garage sale is not hard to prepare for and can be fun for the entire family!  It can also serve as a tax write-off, as you can make arrangements with a local charity to pick-up all the items left after the sale is over.

This is a good idea and it has been overdue for me. I might take action on this soon

There are a lot of multi-family garage sales out here.  So even if you don't want to host one, you can still sell your stuff.

Good Tip, I am used to bagging up and shipping my unused goods to the Salvation Army and Good Will and waiting to use as tax write off.

I need to clean out some of my stuff I am thinking that is a way to make some money.  I also think giving it to charity is a great idea also.

Terry,

Much luck to you and can be a long hard day without a plan of action.  I hope you also have good weather.
