    Twocluttered houses are being merged into one household.I am a single parent

    that works fulltime and cares for one permanently disabled parent who is still

    mobile. The past few years havetakenatoll on me since my other parent died.

    An agreement was reached to merge household. Next month I mustto return to

    college (1 course 2 nights a week for 16 weeks)as a continuing student or else

    I'll have to retake assessment placement tests in January 09 as a returning

    student. The college labels a student as a continuing student if 3 years have

    not passed sincethe last course was taken but it labels students as returning

    students if3 years have passed.I completed my Aug 2005 to Jan 2006 semester

    but didn't return for the following semester because I put family before college

    sincemy parent's health had been drastically declining since2004.



    I need your help in the followingdecision because there is money sitting inside

    these houses looking back at us as clutter. I have to get this completed this

    month, July.



    Which is the better choice?



    Liquidate (I have heard of but never had experience with this method)



    Craigslist (seems time consuming, individual item or yard sale general topic ads

    only last 45 days)



    Physical yard sale (I saved the yard sale tips I previously received from this

    group but haven't a yard sale before)



    Thank you,

    Consuelo

    I would advise doing a physical sale and then try to unload nicer items that do not sell on CL. I actually listed some of my furniture on CL at the same time as the yard sale and pulled in more $$ for my yard sale when people came to pick up stuff listed on CL.





    If a piece of furniture sold in the yard sale, I ran inside and deleted it off CL.

    I personally love craigslist!! I have had grea luck with it. We sold a truck that was given to us for $600....it was almost a junker but someone could use it and really really wanted it, we got tons of inquiries. Craigslist is good because it is free, local, and you reach people you would never reach with a yard sale or ebay. Not time consuming at all, so easy expecially for the response you get one it! I have sold everything I have ever listed.

    You have one more option: estate sale or auction. If you have a lot

    of good stuff, you might want to check on putting it in an auction,

    or even having one yourself. I've been to a number of estate sales

    set up similar to yard sales, but they don't have the low yard sale prices.
