Secrets to a Successful Yard Sale
Here's an easy way to empty your garage and closets while filling your wallet with cash. Use these 10 tips to ensure your yard sale is a success.
Picking the right weekend to hold your yard sale is key. Depending on your individual community, plan your yard sale when people will be out and about. "Consider the spring and early summer, when the weather is good and people are off work," says yard sale expert Vicki Alexander of Murray, Kentucky.
Some towns even hold city-wide yard sales. You can find out when they are scheduled by contacting your local chamber of commerce. The deal hunters will be out those days and in your very neighborhood, so take advantage.
Have a two-day yard sale to maximize your efforts. If you are going to sort, price, and set everything up, you might as well make the most of your efforts.
