Yard Sale 101: Tips On How To Turn Your Trash Into Cash

6/18/2017 5:57 PM Comments Posted By Floralyn Teodoro
Got a lot of stuff to get rid of after decluttering your home? Plan a yard or garage sale to turn your trash into cash!

After doing your spring cleaning, for sure, boxes of unused items will show up. What should you do with these then? Store them in the basement? No. What seems to be trash in your home today can transform into cash soon by putting up a yard or garage sale.

To help you hold a successful yard sale, here are tips and guidelines you need to learn and apply:

Plan. Deal with the 3 W’s first.

In everything that needs to be done, planning is important. For a successful yard sale, the planning stage is important too. Here are the basics you need to start with:

What and what not to sell

Go through your stuff and clutter and prepare the items you’ll be selling a month or two before your yard sale day. Group and box them per category.


Gently used clothing
Heirloom jewelry
Working electronics
Antiques, silverware, etc.
Small furniture pieces
Large furniture items
Books, CDs, and DVDs
Luxury items (bags, etc.)
Costume jewelry
Stained, ripped clothes
China and kitchenware
Underwear (of course)
Exercise equipment
Recalled goods
Power tools
DVDs in poor condition
Blankets and beddings
Broken, disfigured toys
Still-usable old toys
Items in poor condition

Where to sell

A yard sale doesn’t necessarily and strictly have to take place in a yard. You can also hold your sale event in your driveway, front porch, backyard, a friend or relative’s garage, a car park, a flea market booth, or in your local church’s parking area.

You can also partner with other neighbors or families and host the yard sale at a centrally located house. The more nearby traffic, the more sales.

When to sell

Hosting a yard sale on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday is the most ideal. You can also find out if there’s an annual yard sale day in your area. If there is, schedule your sale the same dates for additional traffic and sales opportunities.

Regarding opening hours, 8 am to 5 pm is the most recommended. However, on a two-day sale, you can close around 1 or 2 pm on the last sale day.

Price and label your items for sale.

Never start your yard sale without pricing everything you’re going to sell. You must make sure you have prices for all your on-sale items. To help you price your items, see below pricing guide:

$0.50 to $3
$0.50 to $3
$20 to $100
1/3 of orig. value
Tupperware
Shoes
End tables
Electronics
Kitchenware
Branded clothes
Artworks
Furniture
Chinaware
Lamps
Coffee tables
IKEA items
Books
Computer speakers
Couches
Costume jewelry
Kitchen appliances
Golf club set
Board games
Office chairs
Crib
FREE
T-shirts
Fishing equipment
Toolbox set
Dollar store stuff
CDs, DVDs, records
Stroller
Videogames
Happy meal toys
Clothes
Scooter
Bicycles
Cheap toys
Toys, games, etc.
Tools
Entertainment center

Use color-coded stickers in pricing and labeling your items for you and your buyers’ convenience.

Categorize and display your items well.

Group your items by theme or category. The more organized your yard sale is, the easier it will be for potential customers to shop around and find something they would like. It will be nice to add banners like those in grocery aisles. Make sure everything is in easy view of shoppers. Display your items and avoid merely piling them in boxes.

To arrange and display your items properly, you may need to find as many tables as you can. You can also use baskets, hangers, etc. for smaller items. Regarding small, expensive items, place them near checkout to keep an eye on them easily.

Ready your sales essentials.

Don’t miss out on the small yet important details such as the materials you’ll be needing on the days of your yard sale. Months or weeks before the yard sale, start collecting and saving shopping bags. You can use these for buyers with lots of purchases.

You also need to ready plenty of loose change, a calculator, and a pen and paper in hand. You’ll need something to list down and track your yard sale sales.

Advertise your yard sale event.

To make sure your efforts won’t be in vain, don’t forget to advertise your yard sale event. No one would show up at your event if they don’t know about it, right?

Prepare banners and posters and post them around your neighborhood. You can also advertise online by posting on sites like Facebook and Craiglist. Just make sure not to miss out on the important details like your address, the yard sale hours, etc.

Including high-quality photos of your best items on the posters, banners, and flyers can also encourage more shoppers to visit and shop in your yard sale.

With these tips, you can get started in transforming your trash to cash. However, you must not forget and must also consider your home’s safety. During your yard sale event, keep a close eye on suspicious-looking people. Now, go, turn your trash into cash!
