Ok so I am planning on having a garage sale next weekend and I am not keeping a lot of things that we don't use anymore. There is just too much and it is weighing me down. I am pretty happy with my prices as I do a lot of garage saleing myself so Iknow what people are generally happy to pay, however I do need some help.
I don't know if I should spend the money to put it in the newspaper, if I do, what all would you list? I have name brand childrens clothes, I have cloth diapers, I have books (lots of them) I have a nice home interiors set that I don't want to use anymore, there is scrapbooking stuff, kitchen stuff, tools, womens clothes, mens coats, and I am sure that there will be more as I have not gone through everything yet, each room is getting a very thorough going through. I am tired of all the clutter and it is time that stuff is OUTTA here.
I plan to have it be free after the garage sale other than my daughters clothes and items that I can take down to the consignment store, which is where it will go on the MOnday following. From there whatever doesn't sell will be donated to charity and I won't see it again as it is. Oh and there is a Queen size mattress adn box springs that we are not using, can I sell that or do I have to give it away?
Please tell me if you were looking what woudl you look for? We missed city wides in this town for this year and it isn't a huge town but I do live right on a main hwy so I am hoping that traffic will bring people in as well. But I dont' know what all to do as far as advertising. Do I put signs for about 3 miles outside of town to draw peoples attention to it?
Please tell me when you are looking what you look for, I generally go to towns or areas that are known for a lot of sales so I am not good at this. But I will say that if I look in the newspaper and see one that looks like it may have stuff that I would want I will make a special trip outta my way to check it out.
