From Mummy Deals: 20 Tips To Holding A Garage Sale

Aside from getting rid of excess stuff, if you have kids this is a great way for them to learn some selling and negotiating skills.  In the process they can also clear their room of clothes and toys they've outgrown, and earn money for the new items that they desire!   They love making all of the signs, too.

If I had one tip to add to the list, it would be to check the Farmer's Almanac for the best day to hold it weather-wise, at least in the Northwest.  Another tip I would add is to limit yard and garage sale visits yourself so that your sale does not consist solely of junk you've come home with just recently.

Here's to reclaimed square footage and a successful sale!



Thanks for stopping by my blog!
