I agree with you farmersluck. Some of my biggest and best sales have come as I'm breaking down at 2:30 in the afternoon.

Lots of great recommendations but PLEASE, don't encourage people to put their discarded belongings on the public sidewalk with a sign that says "free stuff". People do this too often in my neighborhood--especially when moving-- and it tantamount to dumping. As Kondo says this just enables someone elses hording.

You can also sell stuff on Facebook marketplace. I believe that listings are sorted by location.
