If you have kids, they probably have toys. A lot of toys. Heaps and piles of toys they've forgotten they had, or lost interest in, or just don't use anymore because they grew out of them. A neighborhood yard sale for kids can help you and your kids clean out the closets!
If you have friends with children (and lots of toys) nearby, you can join forces for the yard sale. Hold the yard sale at the house that has the most foot traffic -- maybe someone lives close to downtown, or near a busy park? The kids can man the sale, and the parents can take turns supervising.
If your children complain that they're bored with their toys, you may want to set up a neighborhood kids' yard sale with a different set of rules. Instead of selling toys for money, make it more like a swap meet. Each child can bring five toys to the yard sale. Each child can leave with five new toys from the yard sale. It won't make any extra space in your closets, but it will solve the boredom problem... at least for a little while!
I ALWAYS TOLD OUR KIDS THAT ANY MONEY FROM THE SALE OF TOYS THEY SOLD AT THE GARAGE SALE WAS THEIRS TO KEEP. IT GAVE THEM AN INCENTIVE TO CLEAN OUT THEIR TOY BOX
When i sell my stuff, i always spend my money fast(like $60 per day!!) So how could i do that??
