Is there a place in your town that you can get boxes? We have a hardware store and a grocery store that are a good source for moving boxes. When I asked, they told me what day the truck comes in and when they stock the shelves. They just told me what day to come pick them up.
You could use boxes as make-shift tables. At least the stuff would be a little higher than the ground. Each box could have a size and you could mark them well.
Or if you have any empty tubs, those work fine too. I have used those for tables for baby clothes and shoes at my garage sales.
Really, as long as you seperate by size and gender it is a huge help.
I wouldn't even fold the clothes. What I did was put the shirts in one pile, pants in another, and onesies and outfits in a third pile. Everything was unfolded and laid flat. I sold shirts, onesies, pants, shorts, skirts for 50 cents, and one-pieces, outfits, rompers, etc for $1 each.
