Our local school holds an annual kids flea market in the gym. When my kids were little I would buy them a table each ($5) and they would go through their toys and decide what they no longer wanted and sell them. Because they took good care of their toys they often sold out before the end of the day. Out of their earnings they would pay me back for the table and they got to keep the rest. It made it much easier for them to let go of things and taught them some good skills - arranging the items, figuring out how much to charge, when to discount the non-selling items, making change, etc. Good times.

carolbrandywine - you mentioned about putting items out "on the curb" for anyone to pick up free. An excellent idea as many folks love a bargain! The only time we found that didn't seem to work was with appliances (i.e. an older, clean fridge and later a washer and dryer). Eventually we put a sign on the appliances saying $25 or offers. They were always gone by the morning.

We just finished an intense kitchen remodel and I was so glad I was able to completely recycle my old kitchen. The entire kitchen was 'removed' rather than demolished. I took photos of it while it was still assembled and posted on my local Craigslist, all the cabinets & appliances. One customer took the island, someone else took the pantry & desk, someone else took the double wall ovens & cabinet and a lady who was moving into a home with no kitchen took the remainder of all the cabinets. They got a great deal as nothing was over $1000 and we didn't dump anything in the landfill, except the laminate countertops that were beyond use.

skylinewater, At my friend's house, each person gets their own colored set of bath towels. That is helpful as well. You know you are green or blue or yellow etc, and don't get towels mixed up.

Stock favorite foods and beverages of choice, give them all the privacy they like, and make sure they feel at home and don't need to ask if it's ok to...........fill in the blank. I like the idea of using plush white towels and changing out as needed, will use in future!
