I am having a garage sale next Saturday. My goal is to get rid of stuff. However I have no idea how to price things like clothes, CDs, old VHS tapes, etc. Whatever doesn't sell will be donated if thatmakes a difference in pricing.
on clothes I usually just do 25-50 cents for single pieces.......75-1.00 for "sets". Maybe $100-150 for nicer jeans pants. Cd's maybe $1.00. and old VHS we used to do $1.00 a piece or 3 for 2.50.
The times I;ve had yard sales my goal was to get rid of things so I always price things really low...

I price a tad higher than I really should, because people always bargain. I have been able to make $100-$200 using this method, and I donate what I don't sell
Have fun and good luck!
If I have anything that is actually worth something I will price a little higher, but most of it is under $2. I just want things gone. And I happily accept offers. Sometimes people offer a good price.
I would definitely say the cheaper the better, as others have posted, especially considering people are going to haggle even those prices!

I usually do baby/kids clothes at $.50/piece and teen/adult clothes at $1/piece. If people buy a lot of clothes I always give a few pieces for free. We sold our DVDs at one point (my husband insisted Blu-Ray was the only way to go.....) but I wouldn't piece them out. Instead I sold the entire collection for one flat fee.
It depends on the brand of kids clothes as to what I sell them for. I sell brand name clothes at much higher than what's listed above and usually get around what I ask for. But if they don't sell, I'm willing to sell them on consignment or Ebay, which usually sells even higher than garage sale prices. But if you truly want to just get rid of them, you can sell them cheap by the bag according to gender and size. It's amazing what people will buy just because they believe they're getting an awesome deal.

Idea that works sometimes, is last day or last hour of sale have a x/bag sale for the clothes especially. Otherwise donate them and save the receipt, I do be I usually itemize taxes so saves us enough.

Thanks! I have a bunch of Halloween costumes (about 10) from Old Navy that I priced at $5. Not sure yet on the jeans. I have learned two things so far in this process: My girls have way too many clothes and I should get rid of more stuff more often. Really, I don't think my girls will ever wear a size 3T monkey costume from 4 Halloweens ago.
