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.
Keep Everything Visible
Boxes are great for bulk items, but people want to clearly see what you are selling. Borrow or rent tables, and cover them with a flat bedsheet. Not only does this look a little better than a bare card table, but it also allows you to discreetly store empty boxes underneath. No tables? Easily turn two TV trays and a wooden board into a makeshift table.
You won’t make a ton of money on clothes at a yard sale, but it is a great way to empty out the closets. Hang items on hangers, and separate them by category (such as men’s, women’s, and children's). Two ladders and a pole can instantly become a clothing rack.
Remember, the beat-up and out-of-style items typically won’t sell well and are often best donated to a charity for the tax deduction. So only put out wearable clothing items in good condition.
