If you want to hold a successful garage sale, then you should work on a strategy to ensure all goes smoothly. The goal is to plan your garage sale, prepare for it and then hold it right there at your home.
Steps to Plan a Garage Sale
Part of your plan needs to be decluttering your home and getting rid of the things you no longer want. We suggest you keep a running pile going of items you plan to purge and sell. Perhaps your family could put a box in the garage as a collection site. Stockpiling your belongings to sell over time is a great way to plan ahead.
Put it on the Calendar
Look at your schedule and decide on the date and time that you want to hold your garage sale. Be sure to look at the weather and consider the time of day so that you can get an optimal turnout.
There are quite a few ways to promote a garage sale these days. You can put an ad in the newspaper but even go a bit further and place online ads to advertise your sale too. The key is to entice people to show up. Mention your larger priced items and the different categories of things you will be selling.
Preparation for Your Garage Sale
One to Two Weeks in Advance
Give yourself a week or two to prepare for your sale. You should do the following steps:
- Put all belongings into piles of like items
- Label them all with a price tag
- Double check your tables and chairs to be sure that you have enough.
One Day in Advance
Take the time to set everything out the day before your sale. You’ll be glad that you prepared in advance. Lay everything out on the tables with their prices clearly displayed. Set your coffee up and hit the sack early so you will be ready to go first thing the next day.
Get up early and put a sign out in your yard and down the street if you are able. Be sure that you position the sign so that traffic will easily see your advertised sale. In fact, consider adding arrows to help direct people and tie some balloons on the sign to draw even more attention.
