English2I'd like to ask something about selling all of my stuffs stuff in a sale. How should I write my ads?
"Everything have to go!" ...or... "Everything has to go!"Everything is singular.

In the US, at a close-out sale for a store, it's common to see "Everything must go."

Thank you for the corrections, Huevos!
And thank you for the input, Barbara!

It looks like "everything must go" will be my choice.

I mean, there's no worry of grammar mistake in
"everything must go,"right? Emotion: smile
Oh, I forgot to ask one thing, Huevos...

Why is the word "stuffs" wrong? I can hear and see lots of Americans, as well as the British, saying and writing that word almost everyday. Can you explain this, please?

Thank you!
I've never heard stuff referred to as stuffs.
How much stuff do you have?
NOT
How many stuffs do you have?

Completely agree - "stuffs" is a form of the verb "to stuff" but is always singular when used as a noun.
Hi English2,
M
y understanding is, "stuff", in most context is used as a collective noun which is not supposed to be pluralized. But it's often misregarded as countable and therefore pluralized as "stuffs" with "s" to inidcate its plurality which is incorrect in my opinion.
If someone said "there is a lot of weird stuff going on in that house.." , he is referring to something paranormal in nature and unexplainable apparitions which can only be expressed as "stuff" as a collective noun. That said, a lot of people are still using "stuffs" as standard English.
So... "stuffs" is a slang word?

Anyway, thank you for all the answers, guys!
I will never use the word "stuffs" again.
