My husband and I have been trying to sort and organize decades worth of junk and are trying to decide what to do with it. I want to just donate it all to the Goodwill Industries and be done with it. My husband wants to have a big yard sale but that just seems like so much work and such a hassle. Have you ever had a yard sale and was it worth all the trouble?

Haven't had a yard sale. However I have tried to give things away to "good home" on fb before and had no takers. So they wound up going to Goodwill. Right now, I'm trying to figure out what to do with all of the LIttle Tykes products that we have and my daughter has out grown.

Hi Nancy,

I have to agree with you about yard sales. I personally prefer to haul everything to a charity rather than bother with a sale. My sister on the other hand loves having yard sales and looks very forward to her annual event.
