The idea of making money selling your unwanted items may be just the motivation you need for getting rid of clutter in your Long Island home. With some helpful tips, you can hold a successful yard sale and have extra dough as a reward for your efforts.

Creative name and advertising

Think of a creative name for your yard sale and advertise online and with posters in your neighborhood. Include some of the items that will be up for sale and include great directions.

Team effort

If you won’t have enough items to fill the yard, team up with friends and neighbors to sell your items together. The more items you have out, the more tempted customers will be to stop in.

Proper placement

Put the items with high value at the front of the yard sale so people passing by want to investigate. As items sell, replace them with similar value items to keep the appearance of plentiful stock.

Prices

Put a price on everything because even though it’s time-consuming, customers won’t hesitate to buy because they’ll know exactly how much the item costs.
