Tips for Holding a Garage Sale

Use a garage sale to reduce the clutter in your home and get rid of itmes you don't want to move.

1. Check with your city government to see if you need a permit or license.

2. See if neighbors want to participate and have a "block" sale to attract more visitors.

3. Advertise. Put an ad in free classified papers, put up signs and balloons at major intersections and in stores near you home.

4. Price items ahead and attach prices with removable stickers. Remember, garage sales are supposed to be bargains, so don't try to sell anything of significant value this way.

5. Check items before the sale to be sure you haven't included something you want by mistake.

6. Keep pets away from the sale.

7. Display everything neatly and individually so customers don't have to dig through boxes.

8. Have an electrical outlet so buyers can test appliances.

9. Have plenty of bags and newspaper for wrapping fragile items.

10. Get enough change, and keep a close eye on your cash.
