Next Level Garage Sales

Having a garage sale is simple. You open your garage, throw some signs up, and wait for people to come and give you money for your stuff. 

When to Consider Having a Garage Sale

If you’ve got the time and have a ton of things to get rid of, a garage sale is your best bet! I’d say a reasonable amount of time to expect to spend on your garage sale is 20-40 hours if you’re having a two-day sale. 

Planning Your Garage Sale

Once you’re ready to have a sale, the next step is to pick a date. Make sure you check the weather forecast so you can plan around the weather.  

Declutter Your House and Organize the Items

Having a garage sale is a great thing to do because it gives you a reason to go through everything on your property and purge anything you don’t need to keep. Since you’re taking the time to have a sale, you might as well go through every single item in your house and decide if you want to keep it or get rid of it. 

How you advertise your garage sale will determine how many people show up and, in turn, how much money you will make. If you put a lot of effort into your advertising, you will reap the benefits by having more customers.  

How to Advertise a Garage Sale

There are several places you can advertise your garage sale online. Most will require a photo.

If you have a local newspaper, it might be worth it to pay for an ad. You’ll want to see how much you’ll have to pay for a spot and decide if it’s worth it, but it could drive a lot more customers to your sale if you choose to go this route. 

Advertise Through Your Local Newspaper

One of the essential ways to advertise a garage sale is by placing signs with arrows next to the road. Like online advertising, the more signs you put out, the more people are likely to see them.
