Canberra householders are being asked to register their spring garage sale with Lifeline.
The crisis support centre will launch the pilot of a garage sale campaign on Monday.
The campaign will raise money for Lifeline while helping people get rid of unwanted goods.
The first round of garage sales will be held in South Canberra, Queanbeyan and Jerrabomberra, on Sunday, September 8.
It will move to the inner south and Woden on the following Sunday, followed by the inner north and Belconnen, and then Gungahlin, on the next two Sundays.
