How to have a successful garage sale



Plan ahead!!!!! Be prepared that some work is involved and it won't be easy. If you get your mind ready it will go alot easier and more successful.  Take the time to really clean everything up instead of just opening the garage and throwing it out there. If you have some great toys and electronics be prepared with batteries or extension cords to reassure people that everything works.

Set everything up in groups and label everything clearly. Be prepared for haglers. You may want to price slightly above what you want then you won't feel so bad when people ask for less.

Sinage is very important! Clear signs and detailed directions will insure more people!
Be sure and take part in the free advertising sites like ok4free.com craiglist.com, consumerqueen.com and freecycle groups.

If it's a hot day , score some extra cash by selling cold drinks. My kids love to set up a snow cone stand and its always a hit.

Tell your kids that whatever they sell they get to keep the cash. You will be amazed how quickly they will clean out their rooms and get rid of all that old junk.
