Selling stuff is fun. I wouldn’t have started this site if I didn’t enjoy both selling stuff, and talking about selling stuff. When you start selling stuff – be it online or at a yard sale – you really do feel lighter. Don’t believe me? Try it then. Sell a bunch of stuff. But before you attempt your first…uh…attempt selling stuff, there are some things you should know about how to maximize your yard sale sales!
When I was young, we had a few yard sales. One was a HUUUUGE yard sale. My aunt brought a bunch of stuff, we sold a bunch of stuff, made a few bucks, and my aunt left a bunch of stuff. Which brings the question – what do you do with leftover stuff?
Many years later when I was heading off to school, my mother put our house up for sale and downsized to a condo. So we had a moving sale. Everything (almost) needed to go. So we had another yard sale and made a few bucks. And we (okay, just me) have a funny story about a fridge we sold to a future girlfriend’s dad.
Fast forward my life to the early 2000’s when my wife and I bought a house. We decorated the house as we saw fit, and somehow accumulated knick-knacks and paddywhacks. We wanted less clutter, so we decided to have our first yard sale – but what should we sell and for how much?
Jump forward to 2014, we’d had a few of our own yard sales and were pretty confident in how to maximize sales and prepare. But 2014 was a big year. We were selling everything to move to Panama. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. We decided to have an estate sale, followed by smaller-scale yard sales. We haggled. We listened to neighbor’s stories. We didn’t waste our entire day or weekend. We made over $10,000 selling all our stuff.
So, how can you learn all there is to know so you can have a successful yard sale and maximize your yard sale sales?
