I am another one that have VERY disappointing yard sale results so that cured me for a while.
Then our son was born and I accumulated so much stuff. I kept thinking "it is too good to give away" or "I could sell it"
Of course I never did either and after two years, we had a room full of clothes and baby gear.
Then a neighbor couple became pregnant (young couple, a total surprise) and I forced myself to let go. All in all, I probably gave them $1,000 (retail) worth of carseats, baby gear, and clothing. In reality, I doubt I could have sold all of it for more than $100.
I did take some of the nicest clothing to a resale shop but the price they offered me was so low, I decided to give it away to a local shelter instead.
I have sold a few things on ebay, a travel bed, packable high, etc. and got decent prices but when time and shipping is factored in, I don't think it was worth the effort.
I have friends that make hundreds of dollars having yard sales but I know they also spend lots on the clothing intially, something I don't do.
