WEEK 4 - 16 Ways to Execute a Successful Garage Sale - EXECUTING

As you know, I will be posting every Monday in May, tips on how you can execute a super successful garage sale.


**note - sorry I didn't get this posted on Monday - I got busy unpacking!**


Week 4 – Executing

#1 – Know your Audience & Don’t be Greedy
If you’ve done a few garage sales in your area, you generally know what kind of people stop by. You also get a feel for how much gets sold, at what price, and if people haggle for a lower price. You probably think your junk is worth more than it is. If you want to sell your items, don’t over price them. HOWEVER, I sometimes over price my items a little because people will haggle and barter with you for a lower price, but not by much. I generally know how much I would like to get out of that item.

#2 – Check the Weather
AKA – don’t be stupid! To make THE most profit out of your garage sale, you do need to do as much organizing and planning as possible. And part of that comes with checking the weather. Don’t just up and the day before decide you want to do a garage sale. Double check the weather for the weekend. This will also help give you an idea of temperature, time frame, and more time to gather your stuff if need be.

#3 – Signs & Post an Ad
Ads - There are people that go Rummage Sale Shopping every weekend. There are people that look in the ads for items they are looking to buy. You can usually place a FREE ad in your local newspaper for your Garage Sale. You can also list your sale on Craiglist for free. Make sure you list your big ticket items, and anything you think will attract attention. In fact, I posted my Craigslist ad on Friday night, and I had 3 emails in my inbox asking about certain items.

Signs – Make sure you have colorful, visible, easily-readable signs. They will help guide and direct people who are looking for your garage sale. Make them good enough to use for the next one and the next one. You can use an old political sign and paste a poster board over it. Easy-shmeezy. I invested in a quality sign that I could use over and over again. I was also very vague on what I wrote so I could use it more than once. For example: My sign says “Saturday – 8am,” that’s it.

#4 – Be a Sales-person
Know your stuff, really! If someone has picked up an item that has a pair, let them know about it. If someone is deciding whether they want to buy the item or not, reassure them; whether by reminding them they don’t have to pay tax, how good the item is, how they can use it, etc. Do everything you can to make that person want the item. But of course, don’t be too pushy. There’s nothing worse than a pushy salesman. I was able to sell a few extra items just by casually mentioning certain items that would go with their purchases.

Stay tuned next week: Garage Sale Wrap Up & How mine went!!

Financial Friday 5/21/10 - Don't Throw It Away Just Yet

Don’t Throw It Away Just Yet…
So in honor of this garage sale thing AND negotiation skills I talked about last week…I thought I would share something that happened to me a few weeks ago. I came across some items that were several years old that I have never used before. I probably couldn’t sell these items at a garage sale, and I probably couldn’t get much out of them through craigslist or ebay, so I thought I might go a different route.

All of these items were from the same store. So I called the store, and asked to speak to a manager. I told her that I have some brand new items that I have never used that I received as a gift. I don’t have a receipt, but would it be possible to receive some type of store credit? She said “We can probably do that. Bring it in, and we’ll see what we can work out.”

So I brought the items into the store. She said she couldn’t give me much because they were several years old. But there were 2 items that I got at least half the value for. At the end of it, she gave me a giftcard to the store for $24.84, and on the receipt it has a coupon for $10 off $50 purchase! Now I know that they will re-sell these items for more than they gave me AND make a sale off me and my giftcard. But I DON’T CARE! I made it seem like I needed to shop their anyways, and I will take whatever she can give me. So it’s a win-win for their store. Win #1 – they can sell those items and make a profit, Win #2 – I will be now shopping at their store.

Like I said, there really was no chance of me selling these items, and even if I did I definitely could not have gotten almost $25.00 out of it. So I’m happy with the turn out.

Moral of the Story #1 – Think! Before you throw anything away!
Moral of the Story #2 – Be truthful & VERY nice. If you are honest and very friendly, you will more than likely get the results that you want.
Moral of the Story #3 – It’s worth a shot! There’s no harm in asking.

Do you have anything you could return to a store to get store credit? Just like I said last week, you would be surprised how much you can accomplish if you just asked!!
