Step Into Our Garage Sale

August 5, 2011 at 8:57 am Leave a comment

Who doesn’t love the thrill of finding a treasure? That’s what garage sales, yard sales and street sales are all about!

 

We love them because they’re incredibly quick and easy ways to get rid of stuff.

Package purchased items in no longer needed gift bags.

 

The trick to preparing for a garage sale is (like all things in life according to us) compartmentalization. Separate items into piles (like with like) and label (price) as you go.
 
Check out Peter Walsh’s neat tips and tricks for organizing a successful sale as well.

 

Finally, don’t be discouraged if everything doesn’t sell. This is a perfect opportunity to leverage your local Goodwill, Value Village or Salvation Army outlet.

And refrain from “reclaiming” the leftovers. You’ve already gone through the process of sorting and hauling stuff from every stuffed crevice of your place (while schlepping around in your bath robe in front of the whole neighbourhood at 5am).  

Why turn back now?

Call us if you need help hauling stuff away!!
