All My Best Yard Sale Tips For The Highest Yard Sale Profits

Who doesn’t like yard sales?

It’s such a great way to make some quick cash and get rid of clutter at the same time!

(Besides, people routinely take stuff that’s been left at the curb for FREE when it’s intended for the garbage, so why not sell it?)

But in my mind, preparing for a yard sale is a process …if not an art.

At my most recent yard sale, I made $1,013.00! Proof that if you take the time — and price things right — you can make a lot of money from a yard sale.

Each time I have a yard sale, I fine-tune the things I’ve done in the past and make mental notes of the things I want to do (and not do) at my next yard sale.

In order for businesses to be successful, they have to constantly reinvent themselves and create ideas that will appeal to their audiences. The key to a successful yard sale is to look at it as a business. Just like any event or product, you want to try to draw attention through advertisement and uniqueness. Although it is not a day-to-day job, you can prepare for this event in advance to ensure success.Roxanne Ranelli

 

How To Make The Most Money At Your Yard Sale

So, how do you perfect the process of having a successful yard sale?…

By learning from your own past yard sales, others who’ve hosted yard sales, and by listening to the shoppers who visit your garage sales.

In time, you will begin to see what works and what doesn’t, and you will inevitably find shortcuts & time-savers that will result in even more yard sale profits.

What? You say you don’t have the time to do all of this research yourself?

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I frequently write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed several years until switching gears to pursue things I was more passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun websites).

    We came across a fantastic idea recently that sounds crazy…but works. Sell Mexican jumping beans at your yard sale!

    Yes, that is right, sell Mexican jumping beans at your yard sale, and you will have a crowd of people coming just to check them out (and buy!) and then also to see your other items. Set up a little table visible in front of your yard sale with the Mexican jumping beans bouncing around…and a sign that reads “Mexican jumping beans for sale!”

    We ordered some really active jumping beans from http://www.amazingbeans.com They sell them in these cool little plastic boxes that have a hinge…they are so much fun.. and inexpensive
