Speaking of garage sales, it drives me up the wall when I give away a bunch of our stuff and my daughter yelps "Why are you just giving it away? You should sell it!"
Sure, except that (a) I don't feel like taking the time just to make a few bucks and (b) people around here are CHEAP. If you're asking more than $2 for a brand-new, never-worn sweater, you'll get an argument. No thanks. I'd rather that Canadian Diabetes or some other "clothesline" charity reaped the rewards.
