Eliminate the stress and last minute hassle with a little planning!

I LOVE having garage sales. Yes, it is a lot of work for just a little money most of the time. But I’m an organizer. I can’t get enough of decluttering, labeling, organizing, pricing, setting it out, and watching it goooo awaaayyy!
I don’t stress about the sale, either. If I make money, fantastic! If I make $3, it’s more than I had before. And then everything just goes right off to the donation center. No biggie. Nothing really lost.
Every item I take out of my house, because we no longer want or need it, is going to go to a donation center. So why not make a dollar on it instead? Or five dollars?
But again, garage sales can be a lot of work. I never expect to make big bucks at my garage sales, mostly so I’m not disappointed or stressed about having to stick to my guns on prices. I price a little on the high side because most people that shop at garage sales are hagglers. I am a-okay with that.
With the right planning and organizing, your garage sale can seem like a breeze. I don’t recommend having a garage sale if you’re in a hurry to get rid of things, though. It may take you a while to go through your home deciding what to keep and what to let go.
