Going through your belongings is a must before preparing to move. After all, you don’t want to spend time and money packing and moving items you don’t need in the first place. A garage sale is a great place to start as you work on downsizing your belongings. 

How to Have a Successful Yard Sale

How to Price Garage Sale Items

Instead of rushing to do it the night before, price your items as you're going. As you pull items into your “sell” pile, jot down your preferred price. Remember, people shopping at garage sales are expecting discounts. For higher-priced items, you may be better off selling them online. 

Make sure your prices are visible so people aren’t confused and put the item down. You can use stickers or even masking tape and a permanent marker. 

Here are some average prices to get you thinking about pricing your own inventory:

Pro-tip: Scout out local sales to get a sense of comparative prices. This will help you from over- or underpricing your belongings and maximize profits. 

Advertising Garage Sales

Of course, there’s no point in planning a moving sale if no one comes by. Here are a few ways to advertise your garage sale:

Pro-tip: Some sites may take time to upload your post, so plan ahead and submit your event a few days early.
