5 Tips for a Successful Garage Sale
If you are looking to get some extra storage around the house and want to clean out all your junk, don’t just throw it away. You never know what someone else might need. You can surprisingly make money off of anything. Here are some tips for when you want to make that extra cash!
Tip #1 Good Advertising
You don’t want all that work to be for nothing. Advertise your garage sale a week prior with flyers and signs around your town, people will come flooding in!
Tip #2 Organization
Its easier to stay organized when you separate your things into piles (the go-to rule: “Keep, Sell and Trash”).
Tip #3 Price Accurately
It’s common to think something is worth a lot more than it is. Once used, the price reduces by at least 50% (it’s even lower if slightly worn in). Pricing fairly will guarantee a sale!
Tip #4 Combine Items
Selling multiples of an item for one whole price catches people’s attention. Everyone loves a bundle! Example: “4 shirts for $5.00”, “5 movies for $3.50”
Tip #5 Negotiation
Most buyers will try to talk you down in price. If you’re good at negotiating you will still make a bang for your buck. Be prepared for this and you will do just fine!
