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.
Set the Stage
Clean and dust the items you plan to sell. You by no means have to scrub them, but being dust-free just makes everything look a little better. Make sure you have plenty of lighting, especially inside the garage. Replace your bulbs with brighter ones, or bring in lamps, and be sure to mark them “not for sale” to avoid confusion.
If you have pets, keep them inside. Even the sweetest of puppies could make people uncomfortable, and you don’t want to lose any sales.
Safety tip: Scout the area for any safety issues or hazards. Stairs, cracks, and anything that could cause someone to trip should be well marked with caution signs.
