Garage Sale

Alternatives to a Traditional Garage Sale
Do you have stuff in your home that you need to sell? Perhaps you have
some suits or dresses that no longer fit, an older living room set that you've 
just had replaced, or a vinyl record collection you've been hanging onto for 
years.
If a traditional garage sale is not an option for you, there are other ways to 
sell those items. 
For example, you could rent a stall for the weekend at a local flea market. 
This is relatively inexpensive and can be a fun activity for the whole family.
Another option is to advertise in your local community newspaper. 
Advertising rates in local publications are often much lower than in major 
newspapers. 
You can also advertise on the internet. There are several popular sites,
such as Craigslist.com and eBayClassifieds.com (Kijiji.com in Canada) 
where you can advertise for free.
