Yard Sale Date Night

Hey Divas, it’s summertime and you know what that means?! Sunshine, cookouts, fireworks, and yard sales!

 Hello again, it’s Amanda (@akaAmandaK) and I’m so excited about this month’s guest post! If you are anything like me – your closets, storage space, and garage are piling up with stuff that needs a new home. I was looking through all the “treasures” my hubby and I have accumulated over the years and thought, “There must be a better way to get rid of some of this clutter! Why not turn a tedious task into a fun project that doubles as a day-date!?”

 That’s right, I’m talking about a Couples Yard Sale! Divide your items between “Yours”, “Mine”, and “Ours”, and start a friendly competition between you and your sweetie to see who can sell the most! Aside, of course, from the treasures you’ve decided to part with, you will need: 


  •        Brightly colored poster board to make your yard sale signs
  •        3 different color Post-it Notes or stickers to use as price tags (designate one color each for “Yours”, “Mine”, and “Ours”)
  •      Pitchers of lemonade/Kool-Aid/water, disposable cups, and Donation Jar for *Bonus Round* (See below for details!)



Once you have assembled your loot, write the prices for each item on a sticker and place on the item. As your shoppers make a purchase, collect the stickers in separate piles. At the end of your sale, count who sold the most (depending on the types of items you decide to include in the yard sale, you may choose a winner by total number of items or total dollar amount sold!) Whoever wins gets to plan (or be relieved of planning duties) for your next date night – so you may want to test your up-selling skills! 


As a *Bonus Round*, add a self-serve lemonade (or other refreshing beverage) stand, complete with a “Date Night Donations” jar! I created a separate sign for this station (with a shameless plug for the Dating Divas website, of course!) I also remembered I had some fun disposable glasses that added a punch of pizzazz to the whole shindig! 


There’s just nothing like spending time with the one you love – but if you can make some money while you’re at it, all the better! This date provides both, with the promise of at least one future date of one of your choosing! Have so much fun this summer and let us know who “wins” your day-date competition!

  1. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE this idea! What a cute and clever twist on what could otherwise be a hum drum Garage Sale. I’m definitely doing this. My husband is so competitive… there’s a chance he will stick around and help both days instead of only Friday morning! LOL (I hope he doesn’t see this.)

  2. Thanks, ladies! I agree, mixing some friendly competition (i.e. flirting!) with some added cash can only be a great thing! 🙂

  3. Amanda – how cute is this!?! I love it! Mixing making a little $$ & some friendly competition…. win-win! XOXO
