Chairman of the bored
My sister in law just got done with her quarterly garage sale. Grossed I think somewhere around $118. Not bad for 8 hours of sitting in the hot sun, practically giving away cherished (maybe not) household items you paid 30 times what you sell them for. Not bad for enduring 38 episodes of dickering over a perfectly functional toaster 'its worth $1.50' 'no it should only be.75 cents'. Not bad for 4 hours of hauling tables, sorting items, tagging items and setting up. Not bad for hauling the same tables and unsold items back down into the basement..........why would anyone want to hold a garage sale when one could with far less effort haul all the things you don't want anymore down to the local Goodwill store, dictate your price, write it off on your taxes and be done with it?
