Impromptu Garage Sale

As I have mentioned before I have been selling things on Kijiji.  With the weather being so much nicer on Saturday we had a tidy out and I posted a number of things on Kijiji.  Lots of emails later, I tried to coordinate as many people as possible to come over on Sunday as dh had the day off and I figured he could help folk take things apart and load them into the vehicles.

I also figured while folk were coming for the things they wanted from Kijiji, I would see if I could sell them some other things.
Worked a charm and nearly $900 later, we have not only got rid of a lot of things, we even sold things that I never thought we would get rid of.  Dh hates doing garage sales, but even he got into the swing of it!!

I will say that dealing with folk on Kijiji does try your patience, but needs must.

We have not put the lawn tractor up for sale yet, but as we want $6,000 for it, I feel we should put it on Kijiji sooner rather than later as it may take a while to sell.  We do have a regular lawn mower that we can use to cut around the house, if we have too.

it may not take that long to sell the lawn tractor when the grass starts to go green.

You'll have to get rid of it, so best to set it up on the site sooner than later.

Fantastic results for the spur of the moment (or any time!)

That's amazing! I've never made even half that at a PLANNED rummage sale!
