Below are a few tips for a successful garage sale.

  • Try planning your garage sale during the weekend can choose a time when the weather is pleasant.
  • It is always handy to have a family member or friend to assist you during the sale.

  • Be realistic while pricing. Consider yourself as a buyer when you put up a price on an item.
  • Arrange your items in such a manner where people can walk about and also closely examine them.
