  1. I just held my garage sale this weekend, and we didn’t have any big ticket items, I guess you could say; the highest priced item was a water tube you use on the back of a speed boat to go tubing in, and that was sold for around $50.

    Well, most of our items were priced under $5, and we ended up making over $400 in two days! =]

    Our first day would have been better if I realized my dad should not have been gifted with the position of honorary advertiser.

    On the second day of the sale, my cousin and I were driving around on the highway you take to get to my house, and we saw the little teensy-weensy signs my dad put up (you know, the generic “garage sale” signs you can get at Walmart), and we could barely see them.

    We got back home and told my dad that anyone going 60mph down that highway would never see those signs.

    My cousin and I ran off to get the poster board, and put “Yard Sale – 5.5 mi North” and “Yard Sale – Turn Left” in HUGE letters.

    A couple minutes after putting up those signs on the highway, we attracted at least 75 customers to our rural sale in less than 2 hours. :)

    We also found out that concessions don’t go over well at garage sales. If you do concessions, just sell cans of pop for 50 cents, those small bags of chips for $.50, cups of coffee for $.25, and cookies for $.50 each – popcorn and bottles of water don’t sell well, for some reason.

    Freeze pops sell well, but you only make around $.10 per freeze pop sold; little cost in buying them, though.

    We might try selling ice cream or baked goods next time, and see how they sell, though.

    Needless to say, my dad will be running the cash box next time. ;)

    We are getting ready to have a garage sale-the one we SHOULD’ve had when we moved 3 years ago! We live just outside of town (7 miles) and I’m a little leary of how well it will go…trying to get some neighbors in on it so we can advertise as “the longest garage sale” :)
    Hope to win and get all of the awesome info included in the ebook! Thanks for being such a great resource!
