Garage Sales – Have one!

Happy Mothers Day!
If you thought this was a Sunday for no insert coupons, think again. I think a lot of us moms like having the time on a Sunday to sit, clip, and plan for all the bargains we will find in the coming week. But there’s always the problem of not having enough room to store all our great bargains. It’s time for garage sales. And for veteran deal hunters, that means two things: 1. Find a deal and 2. Sell your stash.
That’s right, the toothpaste, aerosol, soaps, cleaning stuff, makeup, and other non perishables you get for free or pennies on the dollar can now make you money – while you make room for more. Put a price on it of a dollar if it regularly retails for more, $2 if it sells regularly for more than $5, or a quarter for dollar items. Sell it in bulk. If you don’t want to have a garage sale, you can donate your freebies to the spring sale of your favorite local charity, or to a thrift store, or a food bank or shelter.
Selling your freebies isn’t really a moneymaker, but it gives you some profit as you clear out for more room. Remember, deal hunters are not only SAVING money with coupons, sales, and online codes – we often find a way to combine offers and sometimes make a small profit. So we keep finding great deals – and our stash gets bigger, but our storage doesn’t. It’s also a good idea to not keep things forever.
We have a lot of high value coupons in Smart Source and Red Plum this weekend. Take a look here for our Insert preview list in PDF.
