*Declutter and Gather in Living Areas.
*Finalize plans for a date and time frame.
*Inform interested neighbors and family.
If you really want to ensure a good turnout, advertise in the newspaper. Garage sale enthusiasts use the newspaper to decide which sales they will visit. List your one of a kind items. Stress items you know people will be looking for (brand name kids clothes, baby items, tools, fishing equipment, furniture, specific collectibles, Little Tykes toys, etc.) Make sure to list your address, date, and time. Be sure to stress "No early sales."
*Arrange for a babysitter if needed for the date of the sale.
