Tips on planning a fun and profitable $$ GARAGE SALE
- Check with friends,relatives and neighbors to see if they would like to join you in holding a garage sale or if they have anything they would like you to sell for them.
- MORE SELLERS means LESS WORK, and a larger inventory means more buyers.
- If possible, plan to set up your sale items in a covered area, so you can still hold the sale if weather turns to rain.
- Price your items fairly but keep in mind some people will want to bargain, so don’t make your prices too low.
Be an effective seller.
- Make sure you have lots of small bills and change in your cash box or apron for the day of the sale.
- Keep track of your initial “float” so that you can get an accurate picture of your profits at the end of the sale.
- If you are selling clothing, display it on hangers.
- Display items other than clothing on tables and make sure the items are not crowded.
- Be prepared to slash items as the sale nears the end.
- After the sale, leftover items can be donated (if you like) to a local charity such as Big Brothers, Salvation Army etc.
