Yard sale

Posted By: KB on 2006-06-14
In Reply to: Having my first yard sale. Any suggestions? - Moving in August

The 4th would be okay if your area gets a lot of traffic. A lot of people "running around" on the holiday weekend. I have known people who did very well on holiday weekends.

Just to warn, clothes don't sell well. Toys, baby items, household items are good sellers. I like to price toward the lower end so that I get rid of it. Those who price high take the risk that the buyer won't bother to "haggle". But you should stand firm if you feel a price is fair, maybe give in if it is getting towards the end of the day.

Have a good one!!!

Having my first yard sale. Any suggestions?

It will be some time in July.  Any particular weekend that would be best?  Probably not around the 4th because people will be out of town, right?

Have lots of clothes and other stuff.  Anything that I haven't used in the last 6 weeks or that was not a gift is going.  No more clutter for me!

I've never had a yard sale before.  Is there anything I should know?  Oh, and I hate to haggle.  Should I price to high and take the first offer or just price low and stand firm (who me?).  I'm not looking to make a fortune.  I just want to get rid of my junk and have a little to show for it. 

Thanks for any suggestions.

Does anyone know how to reset a DVI? I purchased one at a yard sale and *sm*
it did not come with a manual.  I am trying to use it for the first time and the dial tone comes up but it is asking for a log in ID.   I would also like to purchase a manual if anyone has one.  I do believe I can go to the DVI website and ask about purchasing one but that will not help me throughout the weekend in trying to figure out what do do now!  Assistance is greatly appreciated!
Yard sale maybe? I have a friend who made $600 in one day

Don't know what it's like wherever you live but in my town yard/garage sales are some people's weekend hobby lol. Get friends to sell stuff too so it is a big one that people will stop at, make the signs big.

Yard sale! If you have anything in your house you can part with

have a yard sale, or post a cheap ad in those little throw away papers like Pennysaver, NOT the regular newspaper as the ads are too expensive.

Remember that things can be replaced.  Good luck!

Without too much effort?! A good yard sale takes a good deal of effort, IMO.
Sale - as in company sale, but
don't worry nothing seems to have happened yet.  They've only been talking about it for months now. 
What can we use on the yard for fleas? I got a
cocker spaniel a few months ago to go along with the cats but since the end of June/beginning of July we have been fighting fleas. I'm surrounded by neighbors who both have 2 dogs but their backyard grass is about 3 feet high so now matter how much spraying I do in the yard, the fleas still comes back. I've had the yard and house sprayed a few times this month but the fleas keep coming. We never have a problem with fleas until summer months. I just wish the neighbor would cut his grass more than 3 times a year.
yard work

Did some yard work.  My husband mowed the lawn Friday evening.  Got delayed for half an hour because I disturbed a yellow jacket nest.

Went to a state park in the p.m. and watched my baby while my husband fished.  Didn't catch any as raine poured on us, so we ate at a nearby fish restaurant and got us some good good fried catfish.  HHHHmmmmmmm good.

Anyone ever have problems with sink holes in your yard?
My grandson was just walking across the yard and his foot gave way and went down to his waist. There are other areas, some large where the ground appears to have sunk somewhat. They live in southeast georgia. If you have experienced this, please share.
Camping in the back yard with the kids sm
when they were small. We had the most fun there than anywhere we went. We had big bonfires, cooked grilled cheeses over the fire and just plain fun. We live near the woods so we had the raccoons, etc, just like being at a campground and it was all free! 
hit some yard sales early in the morning

Buying and planting a tree or shrub in their yard,
something that blooms/flowers so that they can seek comfort every year and it is symbolic too. 
That happened to me once... guns drawn out in front yard..
lived in a track house, so houses were real close together.  Turns out the single woman living next door who seemed to have no end to her money to buy nice stuff was running a racket out of her house, somehow tapping into computers in warehouses for big companies and having merchandise like applicances and computers sent to people without them having been paid for.  FBI surrounded the place, digging in trash, etc.  They finally got her and she went to federal prison for a while, then came back and skipped parole and they were back for her again.  Weird.
I worked grave yard for years but then my jobs all
disappeared by midnight. This very large company said they needed help late and I always did my work, did all the preop hps, etc., but now I am lucky to get 5 jobs a night. This happened to several others that I know, too. It is simply that the off-shore do it cheaper. I did not get paid a differential, either. I just like that shift, but I also need work, so good bye big company
Also, be careful that little girl/parents don't throw something toxic in your yard sm
for the puppy too eat.  Sad, but a lot of sickos out there.
Try ebay, yard sales, Recycled Software or BuyCheapSoftware.com
to find inexpensive software. Also, see if you can find a newer version of MS Works because I think it comes with Word now, or you can buy a standalone version of Word without springing for MS Office.

For that matter, wait until you find a job before worrying about it. Not everybody uses MS Word, and some companies provide their own software for you to use. What about going back to Medware or another company that provides software and/or equipment?
My neighbor had a golden lab that went to obedience school and was shot in their yard because of
We lived on Riverfront Drive with the river running through the back yard.
I always figured it meant riverfront property or the house was in front of the river.  LOL
Yard work, painting kitchen cabinets, sanding and priming
kitchen chairs.  This morning went out to breakfast with DH and then ran a couple of errands, have already spread weed and feed in the yard and used weeder killer in other areas, cleaned off the patio, cleaned off the bookcase in the den, recycled some stuff,  Freecycled some stuff - busy, busy, busy. 
I use round glass lids from old Corningware and other glassware for all my pots. Find 'em at yard
we've lost our sense of community, no more back yard fences, no more coffee klatches
It's the sense of community we miss, and there is some semblance of it here. My son has been online since age 10, and he knows the status of the marriages and pregnancies and jobs and traumas of his gameing friends, from his age on up into the 60s, male and female. They comfort each other, congratulate each other. Ranges from students to cops to medial installers to computer geeks. It's a sense of commnity that has sprung up, but that society doesn't really recognize as REAL yet, it's too new.

Whatever is on sale at 50-75% off the day after Halloween....sm
Target usually has the most "good stuff" candy on sale i.e. the Hershey bars, M&Ms, Snickers, etc.  Usually the day after Halloween it's 50% off and 2 days after Halloween it's 75% off.  I stock up on enough candy to last until Christmas, then after Christmas get enough to last until Valentine's Day, then after Valentine's Day I grab whatever I can because there's no major "candy events" for a while to get it cheap!

Partition of Sale

I wanted to get out of owing a house that I co-owned with a boyfriend after the relationship tanked.  He would not cooperate whatsoever.  Thus, I was being held hostage to a property I no longer wanted and I could not free up my credit to purchase a property on my own.  I got a free consult with an attorney.  I was told that I could file a Judgment for a Partition of Sale.  The court will then file a judgment to put the property up for sale when parties do not agree and divide the proceeds among the owners.  I could also have him pay legal fees too.  I informed him that it would be far cheaper for him to cooperate, and since he wanted to keep the house, he wouldn't be court-ordered to sell it.  After researching the matter himself, he followed through and refinanced the house on his own and settled with me without court and attorney fees.  I did a Google search and found that this applies in Arizona too.  http://www.azcentral.com/home/hb101/articles/0129combs29.html



More off, but Penneys is having bra sale, buy two,
That's because we're always *on sale*. nm
Seems like everything in this country is for sale
nowadays. Property owned by people who aren't US citizens. Ancient west coast redwoods being cut up and sold to Japan for lumber. And of course good U.S. jobs. And the lesser jobs, the ones are taken by people who have sneaked over our borders. I wonder who is going to pay the country's taxes 20 years into the future.
I have one for sale still that is brand new...
I bought mine from Dictran in May but have never used it as I ended up taking another job that doesn't use this. I'm asking $85 if you are interested. You can also E-mail me.

KVM switch for sale
I have a KVM switch I'd be willing to sell for $20.  I think i paid $50 for it.  I used it when I had 4 different jobs and needed to keep some of the software separate.  It worked perfectly fine and saved me from having to move back and forth from one computer to the other.
Means probably getting ready for a sale....sm
That's what happened at Edix when they brought in Bill Keena. The company was sold within a year.

Disk and hasp key in perfect condition.  Will sell for $50.00 via paypal.  Item will ship out with tracking number via USPS.

If a sale, great! MTs will be fine! As for perhaps a corporate
restructuring, ya think??? Like maybe they've been doing that for a year now??? Its history, as in way taken care of already. I think they even hired new cleaning ladies! EVERYONE of import is NEW - brandy new.
I have a Radio Shack one that was on sale for about $79 but it usuallySM

is around $100 -- a portable one that I bought a power supply for.

I hear everything. Fires, fights, rapes, hostage situations (YES!), wrecks, stabbings, shootings, mean dogs - you name it. I sleep to it.

How lame is that? LOL. I will readily admit I have NO LIFE.

The D-Link is on sale this week at Office Max, too. nm
Maxell noise cancelling on sale
at Walgreens this week for $20. I grabbed some this morning when I was there for a completely unrelated errand. I hear they don't last forever, but at $15 off of the regular price I figured I would try them. They squish my ears but are working out OK so far.

Thanks for the heads up on the cellulitis. The koss plug phones are made of earplug material and seem to me that they could harbor nastiness that could lead to an infection.
