Remember these top 5 garage sale tips:

 

Tip 1:

Garage sales can be a great way to get rid of clutter and earn a little extra — especially before buying or selling a home.

Tip 2:

Don’t wait until the final hour. Depending on how long you’ve lived in the home and how much stuff you have to sell, planning a garage sale can demand some prep and setup time.

Tip 3:

See if neighbors want to help or join in. You can turn your garage sale into a block-wide event and lure more shoppers if you team up or talk with your neighbors.

Tip 4:

Create an organized display. Lay out items by category, and display neatly so customers don’t have to struggle to find goods. They will appreciate the thoughtfulness and may return in kind with multiple items to purchase.

Tip 5:

Have  bags and newspapers handy. People who buy many small items will appreciate a bag to carry their goods. Newspapers are ideal for wrapping fragile items.
