Top 5 Garage Sale Tips for Enza’s Bargains Followers

Garage sale season is in full bloom! Time to get out there and have your garage sale yourself or with friends and family. Having a garage sale can be hugely profitable or a big bust. These five sure fire garage sale tips are my golden keys to success and have been tried and tested by many. So, here we go:

1. Have clear, simple garage sale signs. Best are double sided with posts that go into the ground. State time, day with a huge arrow. No other info is needed.

2. ADVERTISE! Your signs alone will not draw a crowd. Advertise in your local paper, pennysaver and online at Patch.com, YardSaleSearch.com, GarageSalesTracker.com and GarageSaleHunter.com.  Many more folks will arrive from the ads than from the sign. If you cheap out and don’t advertise, you will surely not make as much money.

3. Having a garage sale is like dieting. You have to write everything down. That means organize what you are going to sell and write down everything you sold at your sale.

4. Everything must be tagged at a garage sale. Period. End of discussion. You should be a cashier at your sale, not a price inventor. Also more thefts occur when things are not tagged as you are focusing on the wrong things.

5. Feel empowered to say no to a bad offer. No is an important word at sales. If you take every offer, you will make less money. And many people will still buy the item for a higher price.

My goal is to help people make more money at their sale. These tips will help you achieve garage sale gold. You can find more tips on garagesalegold.com or follow me on twitter @garagesaleava.

Discounts on garage sale signs and more

Having a garage sale takes time and planning. So why ruin it with small, unreadable signs posted (probably illegally) on trees or phone poles? Attract more people to your sales with large, double sided signs that get posted into the ground, so people can see it coming and going. Great signs are really hard to find at stores, which is why I created them for myself and am now sharing them with others.

Garage sale, yard tale, tag sale, estate sale, I have them all.  If you like Ava’s Garage Sale Gold on Facebook, you can get a code which will enable you to get discounts on all the signs you will need for your sale. The more signs, the more people come and the more money you will make.

Garage sale is in high season now, so go out there and make money!
