Good advice. I am happy for the other advice. I was not sure how worth a $5 outfit would be that would be $6 to ship! Maybe I should broaden my approach to this.

Why not a yard sale

Yard sale, or really...

Donate them. Do you really need the extra $40 bucks, and the hassle.

My wife puts ours up on fb for a week.
Then I drop whatever hasn't sold at the goodwill.
Sometimes, it's just straight to goodwill. They need more than we do....

I used to sell now and then on eBay.
Then it started costing around 20% in fees......
Just not worth all the effort to me. (Listing, packing, shipping)

Expensive dresses and toys go on craigslist, everything else goes to goodwill. Goodwill is less than five minutes away, easier than the dump which is 30 min away.

32 Out right now or I would. But might save the stuff until spring. Seems this selling stuff can be quite the hassle. Now I know why I stopped using eBay.

You would sell "lots" of clothes together. Nothing individual brings enough money to warrant the effort.

I'm different than most everyone else on Craigslist- using their anonymous emails, I use my regular email. And list my cell # for texting. And sold 90% of our fulltiming sell-off directly from my house.

Otherwise, for clothes- a lot of times towns have "tot swaps" where it's a 3-4 day sale at a fairgrounds or county building or something. You pay a small fee to consign and they take a cut of each sale; you can lessen that cut by volunteering time at it. We have sold literal thousands of dollars at these things.

As a last ditch, consider a local auction house. They'll take 25-35% of the sale AND stuff typically sells cheap. But, I took a couple of truck loads to our local one as I couldn't get rid of things otherwise.

Yes, I would plan to sell in lots. Good advice on the tot swaps. We also have an action house a minute away from us.

Good with today's smart phone and such I can set up a Google voice account and keep a number got calls and texts. A way of being anonymous from spammers but accessible. Thanks.
