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.
Get the Word Out
Place an ad in the paper to run the day before your yard sale. No need to announce it weeks in advance or even the day of. Utilize the classic “Yard Sale” signs to advertise that day.
Sign tips: Have plenty of signs, and make sure they are easy to read and sturdy enough to withstand some wind. (Poster board is not the best option.) Place them in strategic spots such as high-traffic areas and along the route to your house.
So people not familiar with your neighborhood don’t miss the turn, remember to place the signs a block or two before your intersection.
