You are about to move or are planning on it. This is the best time to start going through all of your possessions and deciding on what you want and what you truly need. As you are sorting start to make a keep pile, a sell pile, and a giveaway pile. Essentially anything you don’t sell will make it to the giveaway pile. You can decide how you want to handle the sorting.
Next you need to plan your sale day or days. You could have one massive moving sale, which could attract a good number of buyers. Or you could break it down into a few smaller sales and slowly weed out the stuff you don’t want or need anymore. Whatever you decide make sure to advertise your sale to whatever extent you seem fit. Just hang up some flyers in your neighborhood or invest in a small newspaper ad if you are having an all out massive sale.
Always remember that people are looking for a deal, so be flexible during your sale. I’m not saying give it all away for free, but be willing to negotiate with the customers that want to haggle with you. Your goal is to get rid of as much stuff as possible, so make package deals for guests who want multiple items.
Most yard sales are cash based only, so make sure you have enough change in cash and coins. Ideally keep the prices in simple dollar amounts. People like to work in simple math. They are more likely to spend a $1 than a $1.30 and so on. It just keeps things easy for the both of you.
When you are done with your sales, make arrangement for goodwill companies to pick up your leftovers. Or if there is a goodwill store near you, go ahead and take the items yourself.
