It’s time to clear the clutter if your garage is so full there’s no room for the car or your basement has boxes that haven’t been opened in years.

Here are tips for having a successful garage sale:

  • Get organized ahead of time
  • Decide on your advertising strategy
  • Check to see if a permit is needed
  • Invite your neighbors to participate
  • Make your items easy to see—clothes on hangers, items on tables
  • Plan how you’ll manage the money (cash box, carpenter apron?)
  • Have plenty of change on hand
  • Decide on a discount strategy for end of day or on specific items
  • Prepare to handle leftover items
