Garage Sale tips

I'm doing a garage sale this weekend to get some xtra money for my "junk". When you go to sale's what do you look for?

What stands out, draws your attention, or makes you confirm the choice on that $30 item?

True except for baby stuff. We made over $300 this summer selling a lot of old baby gear like a swing, playpen, etc.

This. Just sell the stuff for whatever. People go to garage sales to get super cheap deals on old crap that might or might not be useful to them.

Don't let anyone use your bathroom. Every other year I have a garage sale and I always get some meth-head that wants to use my bathroom even though there is a gas station that is a 5 min walk away.

Oh, another tip. Open early, at least 7:00 AM. You will get the professional garage sale goers at that time.

Post ads anywhere you can. It may be too late for the paper, but put an ad in craigslist.

I don't usually stop unless I see tools or yard stuff. If you have any of those kind of items make sure it is visiable from the street.

Advertise your sale on Craiglist.

Signage is important. Balloons are always nice.

my mom, wife and sister have a garage sale every year. It basically pisses away my friday cleaning the garage and setting up and dicks up my saturday so they can make $40 each.


I'd rather give them each $50 and haul the shit to good will and keep my saturday.

I had a surprisingly successful garage sale 2 weeks ago. ($700) I bought the largest signs Home Depot had, and printed out/folded and taped my address and arrows to put on the sign. I had many comments from customers about my good signage.

This times eleventy.

Put your 3 items with real worth on craigslist and take the rest to a thrift store.

Unless you have weekdays and weekends to burn and like just sitting and moving stuff around your yard for a few days before you eventually put it in the car and take it to the thrift store.

Or this might be fun.

Take it all in your van to *other* people's garage sales and just drop it off one broken blender and potty seat at a time. See just how few stops it takes to off-load it.

Is it even effective to post a garage sale on Craigslist?

Instead of a garage sale donate it to charity. You will make more from the tax deductions that from the sale.

This.

Also, sitting outside or in the garage most of the day on a hot humid shitty day in July = not worth it

Spend the time to put a price tag or sticker on all of your items. I HATE it when I have to ask someone "how much is this"? I always feel like they make up some high price and I end up putting it back. Why the **** don't they ask me "how much do you have"? I mean really?

My garage sales entail renting a large dumpster and throwing everything in it and calling the disposal service to come pick it up.

Then I tell my wife if she hadn't touched it in a year no one else wants to either
