Tomorrow is National Garage Sale Day! Tips on making the sale right here!

We have been piling up loads of things to sell for about 4 years now and have never had that yard sale or garage sale that we promised ourselves we would have.  Is there an actual person that you can pay a percentage to come in, pick through our stuff, price it…etc.  You get the point.  We need to have a yard sale!

Have you ever found a great buy?  Maybe a collectable you were looking for or something that was worth a lot more than you paid for it?

National Garage Sale Day on the second Saturday in August recognizes the perfect time to sell our good, but used items. Set up the tables and price your things. Or, head out around the neighborhood looking for great deals.

A successful garage sale requires a little planning and organization.

  • Sort like items together.
  • Keep prices reasonable, but don’t undersell. Also, don’t price anything less than a quarter. Who wants to make small change?
  • Clearly price items.
  • Be willing to negotiate. You don’t want to pack up the items again, do you?
  • Wash and fold the clothes. Clean items sell more quickly that musty, wrinkled clothes.
  • Place clearly marked signs in ideal locations. (Check your local ordinances. Some cities only allow signs on boulevards or not at all.)
  • Be prepared with plenty of small bills.
  • If you advertise, be clever. A humorous note about your vast collection will catch garage sale hunter’s eyes more quickly than the ho-hum, everyday ad.
