Meet Your Goals With These Tips For A Perfect Yard Sale
If your spring cleaning efforts led you to conclude your home could use a junk detox, this is the perfect time! With the warmer and longer days comes increased opportunity to hold a yard sale, enabling you to get rid of unnecessary items while making a little bit of money.
So you can make the most of your coming sale, use these tips for the perfect yard sale.
- Set A Goal: What are you trying to accomplish with your sale? Determine if your primary objective is getting rid of stuff or making money, as that should determine how your price your items and how long you run your sale.
- Spread The Word: Start prepping your community for your sale a couple of weeks in advance by posting to social media and putting up flyers at community boards (like the ones in your local coffee shops). Then, on the day of your sale, put up large, easy to read signage directing people to your house from main streets. Just make sure you take them down after the sale.
- Price Right: Generally, people say you should price your yard sale items that are in good condition at a third of the original retail price. If you are hoping to get rid of damaged or older items, do not be afraid to price them low (e.g. 50 cents). You will not turn a huge profit, but you will get rid of your clutter!
