9 Smart Garage Sale Strategies
How to work the room (er, yard) to seal the deal.
Midway through the day and still have tons of stuff? Switch things up and make that merch move. Here’s how.
6. Rearrange lonely leftovers to fill empty spots.
Take down tables and consolidate into a smaller but fuller area.
7. Offer bulk buys.
Add a helmet to a bike or sell two toys for the price of one.
8. Slash prices.
“If you really want to unload it all, two hours before the end of the sale, mark everything half off or $1, says Gubler. Cross out old prices in red, and leave a box of low-cost items by the curb with a big sign that says free to attract passersby.
9. Still have stuff left?
Arrange a post-sale donation pickup by Purple Heart Services or the Salvation Army.
