Ideas for Ridding Yourself of Sale Leftovers

Unfortunately, the Fall sale will NOT have a donation truck coming through afterwards. However, Diversity Thrift Store (804-353-8890) does donation pick-ups at individual homes 7 days a week. They will even come into your home (if you ask) and move stuff out for you. Other options for individual pickups include: AmVets (1-800-526-8387), Purple Heart (1-855-820-0366), and CHKD (1-855-299-5437).

Yard Sale is coming!!!

You totally don’t wear that shirt anymore.

You never used the immersion blender or the weedeater, even though you swore you were going to.

You thought your kid would LOVE that video game, and you were wrong.

And don’t even get you started on that stack of books you no longer want.

Welcome to your garage sale pile.

See? You’ve already started creating it, and you didn’t even realize it.

September 17 is creeping up. Start pricing your stuff!
