At least 2 to 3 days before the garage sale, take some time to price and organize everything. before the sale, make sure that you dedicate some time for posting advertisements on Craigslist, final organizations, and getting cash & signs together among many other things.

4. Timing

Indeed, timing is everything as far as garage sales are concerned. Do not plan any sale in the blazing hot summer or freezing cold winter. Instead, pick a time when the weather is very pleasant, and then ensure that you check the weather forecasts to make sure that there is no rain during your sale.

5. Mark your prices clearly

It is good to put price stickers on everything. Your customers will appreciate seeing the price. This will also give you a good idea of how much you can haggle with your buyers. Some individuals are too shy, and they will not ask about the price of any item in case you don’t place stickers on them.

These are just a few tips for a successful garage sale. We hope you get to sell all of your preloved items.
