Take all the stuff you want to get rid of then take it to your front yard, then keep going and leave it on the curb and the garbage men will take it.

It bugs me when people put up signs saying "Garage Sale" and then you get there and there's no garage. That's a yard sale gently caress you, man.

Other than doing the work to set it up I'm also secretly afraid that people would come and just say "what is this poo poo" and like, mock my unwanted things because I have trust issues with others.
Try that op.

get some of those cheap rear end folding tables like they have at bingo halls and put the smaller poo poo on those, and arrange the larger poo poo around that, then sit in a chair in the middle and drink beer. i guess a sign indicating that your unwanted crap is for sale would be helpful. no need to put labels or prices on any of it, too much work. if someone inquires about a price, haggle. if you have a friend to help move out the larger stuff, its almost zero work and you can just get trashed and meet folks

unless your complex gives you permission to use whatever yard is available, if any, then you're hosed i guess. take photos of your stuff and put it on ebay

Decent advice.
Rather than label every drat thing you could just put a color sticker on the tables themselves and just a printed sign by your chair that says "red $1. Blue $10, green $20 anything else, ask" or something.

Offer mystery boxes on Craigslist. To avoid getting murdered by an angry buyer, make sure you always include at least 1 dildo. In fact, advertise it.

I make killer excellent signs and way too many. So mass people come and I make hundreds every couple years. This was back when I snagged stuff given away at work though.

Cheap acrylic paint on cardboard and a big roll of packing tape is all you need. This is all at the dollar store, cardboard is free.

Some cities will do community wide yard sales on a certain date and this attracts more buyers who will just go to each advertised house. Look up if where you live does that

If your complex/HOA doesn't allow a yard sale or you're deathly afraid of exposing yourself to the sun you can always put all of the stuff you want to get rid of on offer up and sell them all individually at different times.

Pretty much.

The worst part is, if junk doesnt sell, they just add it to the next thing in the auction.

So if you really want that old hifi, but the 200 snowglobes and old track trophies didnt sell before it...they roll it all together and you are buying the whole lot.

Here's a lazy solution: Put all the crap you want to sell in a pile, take a photo of it, and advertise it on Craigslist or wherever as, e.g. "BARGAIN PILE O' STUFF - Have a garage sale or sell indIvidually on eBay, MAKE $$$!!! Pickup only, $50 ONO, no queries re individual items."

Minimal effort, no loving with postage, getting up early, or a bunch of cheapskates trying to bust your rear end.
