Back in 2017, I needed to move to make room for gentrification. So I put out a bunch of my stuff that I didn’t want to take to my new home. I started the process around three months before I had to move.
Initially, I sold stuff on Ebay and Craigslist. Then, as the items became fewer, I just gave them away.
This batch took a couple weeks. I initially tried to sell it, but that failed. A detailed Craigslist freebies listing that got a couple people to come by. I followed up with a FB marketplace ad. Once that was done with, I put it on the curb on Friday, and posted a curb alert to the freebies and to FB marketplace. Trash pickup was on Monday, but someone took it all by Saturday night.
A few of the things were just pickups from the street, and wouldn’t sell on Ebay. Some were purchases. Some were things I just happened to find in my stuff.
The ad was:
Miscellaneous things. See the photos for the current inventory. I will update frequently, and keep adding things.
Take what you want. “thank you” to everyone who took stuff.
