Garage sales are a great way to make some extra cash during the summer months. Also, they can help a lot with the decluttering process if you are trying to sell your home. They can pay off big time if you are ready to part with big ticket items, if you know what you’re doing. You might think, “How hard can it be to mess up a yard sale? You just put your stuff out on the lawn and put price tags on them!” However, if you don’t know HOW to price items, how to haggle, and how to display your items, you might not make as much money as you would otherwise. Check out this post by Stephanie at Six Figures Under for tips:
-Price EVERYTHING. Your shoppers are penny pinchers; they want to know how much they’re spending. Asking is awkward.
-Price ahead of time. Use blanket pricing, like: shirts $1, pants $2, etc.
-Have a special deal for the last hour or two to get rid of more stuff.
