PICK THE BEST DAY.
– Avoid big holiday weekends. There are definitely some hard core people that will still be out, but try to find a weekend when you’re not competing with other large events in your area.
The goal is to make a lot of money, so you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on supplies.
– Borrow as many tables as possible to display your items.
– Recycle garage sale signs from previous sales that your neighbors may have left behind.
Start pricing and organizing your garage sale items weeks in advance.
We started gathering items and placing them out in the garage almost one month ahead of time.
– One week before the sale, take some time every night to go outside and price your items.
When people stop by a garage sale, they are looking for a quick, cheap deal!
Get more money for your large items (furniture, appliances), by listing them online at Craigslist or Facebook marketplace before your garage sale.
