Garage Sale Tips

After helping out with several large garage sales in the past, I have some helpful tips. Get family members and friends to help out. Set up as many tables as you can, it much easier to display your merchandise. If you are selling clothing, it helps to put items on hangers on a rack.

Use plastic bags for your customer's purchases. It's much easier for them, if they are buying several items. Be willing to make deals. Make sure you have a table set up with a cash box, plenty of change, a calculator, and a tablet to write on. Take excess cash inside from time to time, and don't leave your cash box unattended.

Post large and legible signs around your neighborhood, and add some colorful balloons. If you have enough helpers, take plenty of breaks to go inside, and cool off if your garage sale is in the summer. It's a nice gesture to take your helpers out to lunch afterward, if possible, to show your appreciation.
