My garage looks like the house threw up in it. It is filled with
If it doesn't sell we'll be taking it to our waste management centre where we can choose between land fill, recycling and "The Green Shed" (which is their reuse store).
I love that we have the option of on-selling our wares. I particularly love that the on-selling allows us to cleanse, declutter and simplify. It's amazing what you can accumulate when you've been parked in the one house for 16 years.
If you're thinking of organising a garage sale, you can check out my "how to organise a garage sale" post here.
Today I want to concentrate on the benefits of a garage sale:
- Benefit to seller: The seller gets to cleanse while making pocket money, safe in the knowledge that someone else is going to get use out of their pre-loved items.
- Benefit to buyer: The buyer is able to get items they might need without having to fork out big sums of money.
- Benefit to the environment: Less household items end up in landfill which obviously takes some strain off our waste management systems.
- Benefit to your belongings: If you're like me, then you know Toy Story is real and toys have feelings, so you can feel safe in the knowledge that your items are going to be loved again.
