May I ask a question from Gold Capped? I have numerous alts, many with gathering professions. Currently I have 3 guild bank tabs full with stuff, and two auctioneer/storage alts (one of them a lvl80 dk with maxed enchanting). I have every kind of stuff, including lots of Soul Essence, all kind of enchanting mats, lots of leveling greens and blues, class books, motes, meats, low level gems, cloths, etc. I dont want to just simply sell stuff to vendors, and sometimes I convince myself to sit down and auction my crap. However, it takes me about 2 hours to put everything on AH (with Auctioneer), and 90% of them just does not sell at all. I dont overprice them, I am always the cheapest, or check market history for that item. Now, with Catalysm coming, I do not know if I should get rid of them to make space for new stuff, or hope that their prices go up and I can sell them for leveling goblins. I also do not know when is the best time to auction these (my guess was during the weekend, but seems it does not work). Any tips?

Unless you're dealing with consistent sellers (i.e. profession leveling mats), I find that most low-level items aren't worth the time to post more than maybe 1-2 times. Even if you only spend 5-10 secs on a low level green, chances are it's still a less valuable use of your time than dealing with higher level items.For greens, consider disenchanting and then selling the mats. You cut down on your deposit costs and you're more likely to sell. Some of the obscure items (class books in particular) may just take time to sell because there are very few people actively looking for them, but plenty of people that might buy one on impulse if they happen to spot it while browsing.You might be able to up the vendor price on the meat by processing it, but I wouldn't try to rely on people leveling cooking to make your sales - there just aren't enough people that do it. High level meat sells pretty well for the most part, but that market's dying out pretty quickly atm in preparation for cata.
