Make your garage sale a success

By: virawan
Are you in serious need of organizing your home? Are you the type of person who loves to keep things for sentimental reasons?

If you say "YES" to all these, then your garage sale that you have been thoroughly thinking about is highly justified. The need to justify your garage sale is very important so you may go through the hassles of organizing your garage sale.

Most people who hold garage sales are motivated by the need to organize and simplify their life but most don't know where to start. Having a garage sale is a good start. If you are this kind of person, here are some valuable tips for you:

?Rummage through your things, get them organized, put them into clusters and label them. From there, you choose what to sell. Don't include the same kind of items but have a variety of items on sale even if they are big ones.

You can make good money from them.
?Decide a day or days and time for your sale. Also, you can invite your neighbors who have some things to sell as well to join you in your garage sale. Make sure you discuss and be clear about your arrangements.
?Advertise your sale. Before you put up anything on the corner street, please inform yourself about the laws or ordinances in your area about holding garage sales. If you are clear with those and have secured the necessary permit, then you can begin your advertising through community newspapers, posters on approved areas and bold signs just outside your house. Balloons can be used to highlight your house so people will see the garage sale. Be sure to post your ad several days earlier.
?Be sure you have the knowledge on how to display the items to be sold in the venue where you will hold your sale. You should group all same items together, items that are breakable and notify children or parents. Items should be clean and dust-free to attract the attention of the buyers. Put attractive items by the roadside. For clothes, put up a bar where you can hang them with hangers.
?Be prepared with a lot of change for your sale. Not only change but a wrapper to help buyers wrap the items they bought. This way, you won't be hassled all the time because of lack change or wrapper when buyers ask.
?Expect buyers to haggle prices with you so be firm and prepared.

Follow all these and you will surely have a successful garage sale, guaranteed!
