I am not a fan of the Garage Sale.  Let me tell you why.

Firstly, the time they take to set up, run and pack down far outweighs any financial gain.  Believe me, I can think of a million better ways to spend a day, mostly with the ones I love.

Secondly, I resent the intrusion.  I don’t like strangers poring over my things, haggling over prices, arriving way too early (sometimes the day before), inspecting the contents of my garage which are not for sale.  And I don’t need the stuff hanging around before the sale, waiting for enough to accumulate to make the sale worthwhile.

Thirdly, I can think of better ways to get rid of stuff.  Donations to friends – from magazines and books to kitchenware, my friends have benefited from my personal decluttering.  Donations to charity – in Melbourne, where I live, a quick phone call to Diabetes Victoria on 9923 8400 arranges a pickup of my unwanted goods.  There will likely be a similar service where you live.  Or there’s the local Charity Shop, where you can support a charity close to your heart.

And that’s why I’ll never have another Garage Sale.  How about you?
