Challenge Starts Nov 1st and closes at midnight on Nov 30th. (no reason to delay, plus all auctions will need to be posted prior to Thanksgiving so this will not impact the holiday season)
Items purchased as investments don't count. Your Mickey Mantle rookie card you bought as an investment does not count. The items to be sold is the stuff you have that you no longer need or should have gotten rid of a long time ago. The broken air compressor you uncle gave you because he could not throw it out. The extra rims to the mustang you sold 5 years ago....
The tiffany lamp your grandmother gave you but you hate the look of is game if the only reason you saved it is because you new it was worth something.
The actions for items on ebay or other sites must close prior to the end of the challenge to count. Items on Craigslist or other similar sites must be sold by the end of the challenge. If the item sells after the deadline it does not count
The prize for most items sold/donated is based on number "lots" not number of items in the lot. For example the 4 mustang rims count as one item not 4 items, unless you sold them to 4 different people.
Items donated to charity will count toward “most items” award. 1 standard grocery bag (paper or plastic) filled with stuff counts as one item. So a tall kitchen garbage bag counts towards ~3 items and a large hefty size garbage bag counts towards ~6 items. Other items larger than a garbage bag count as one item (TV’s, couch, kids bike…)
Becouse the goal is to get stuff out of your home items given away count as donations, on freecycle or to your uncle count.
Following this same logic trash can earn you credit. A full kitchen bag of garbage counts as one item (Large hefty bag of trash is worth two items). Normal everyday trash does not count only stuff generated during cleanouts.
