My garage sale has come and gone, and although it could have been better, I believe it can be called a success.
By the Numbers
- 1 sunburn
- 1 person asked to use my bathroom (declined, of course)
- 2 early birds
- 215 dollars in sales
What I Learned
- I forgot how much work hosting garage sales are (this was my 2nd).
- Things will sell that you think have no chance. Put everything out that you have no use for.
- Most of the action will be at the start of the sale. Traffic will progressively decline as the day goes on.
Things I’d Do Differently
If I could do it all over again, I’d definitely spend more time preparing. I felt a bit unorganized and unprepared. Much was done at the last minute, such as pricing items. The more organized you are, the better the outcome will be.
