35 Things You Might Forget to Sell at your Next Yard Sale

A few weeks ago, I stumbled across this article “250+ Things to Throw Away” and instantly became motivated to de-clutter my house. Room by room I went through and took out the items mentioned in the article. But then it dawned on me that I didn’t have to throw everything away and that some times might be better off sold in a yard sale. So I created a separate pile for an upcoming yard sale.

If you are planning an upcoming yard sale, I highly recommend downloading “The Ultimate Guide to Yard Sales” book (it’s free thru May 27th) and checking out all of the valuable tips about yard sales.

Here are some of the things that you might forget to sell at your next yard sale:

Stuff in your bedroom:

  • old belts that don’t fit anymore
  • purses you haven’t used in a year
  • bridesmaid dresses you will never wear again
  • shoes that you haven’t worn in the last year
  • costume jewelry you no longer wear
  • excess ties
  • extra blankets and quilts that just take up space in your closet

In the bathroom:

  • bath gift sets that you got as a present but never used
  • hooded towels that the kids have outgrown
