Every year items end up in landfills because people don’t recycle or donate their unwanted items. By exchanging or donating your old stuff you can save money and reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfills!

• To prepare for a yard sale collect items you, your friends, and your family no longer need and wish to donate.
• The next step is to find a place to have your yard sale. This can be at a local community centre, your home, or school.
• Make signs to advertise the sale and include information on the day, time, and place of the yard sale. You can ask your friends to join you and make creative, colourful posters. You can write in bold and colourful letters and decorate your posters with arts and crafts.

At the end of the yard sale, you can donate all of your unsold items to your favourite charity.
