    Media mogul and actress Oprah Winfrey attends a special screening of "Lee Daniels' The Butler" hosted by O, The Oprah Magazine at Hearst Tower on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 in New York.

    Everyone, stop what you're doing, because the most amazing news has just hit the Internet.

    Drumroll, please.

    Oprah Winfrey has just announced via Twitter that she's throwing the "biggest yard sale ever!" (We imagine that she tweeted that in Oprah-bellowing voice, natch.)

    Toss your Halloween plans aside, you guys. This here is the real event of the season.

    Beginning Oct. 30, the media mogul's biggest fans can bid on items belonging to Ms. Winfrey.

    The sale, being held at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club, will include "antiques, contemporary furnishings, and fine art" from the TV star's homes in Indiana, Hawaii, Chicago, Santa Barbara and her "La Quinta" estate.

    Just some stuff from her five homes, noooo big deal. (Such a big deal.)

    A few items from her trainer and longtime pal Bob Greene will also be put up for auction.

    Proceeds from the estate sale will benefit the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation College Fund.

    The fund is dedicated to assisting graduates of The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls--South Africa further their education by attending colleges and universities around the globe.

    An online catalogue of all of the items in the auction will be available on Oct. 18.

    We're calling dibs on her fine china.
