How to ensure your garage sale is not a flop!

What better way to turn your unwanted items into instant cash then a garage sale?

There is no better feeling then turning your trash into treasure, while also making someone else happy. It’s likely that you’ll be getting rid of you had NO idea that you owned.

  1. Set a Realistic Date

Before any planning begins, make sure you pick out a few tentative realistic dates. Your best bet is to pick a day where you’ll have the best shot a nice weather, preferably in the Fall or Spring. If the weather is too warm, no one will show, and if it’s too cold, it’ll be the same. After you weigh your options, choose the best date, and make sure you have a backup for potential rain!

2. Choose Which Items to Sell

When picking out the items you want to get rid of, make sure you properly asses them. There is no sense in marketing items that are in poor condition, or look like they are really warn down. Be realistic. If you were attending a garage sale and you came across a particular item, would you buy it, and how much would you actually pay? Whatever your comfortable price is, is probably accurate.

Use your item gathering time as a time to also declutter. If you don’t want it and it’s not in decent condition, again, go with your gut.  

3. Get Your Credentials!

Many towns and cities are requiring permits to have a garage sale, so do your research. It is most definitely not worth the potential fines and inability to sell your items.

4. Advertise

When having a garage sale, it’s extremely important to advertise your event. Nowadays, you have the ability to market through social media and platforms, so take advantage of your platforms. EZSell is a great place to market.

Out With The Old, In With The New

Have you ever opened up your closet and just wonder, “why do I have so much stuff?”

At some point, we’ve all been there, and it’s pretty common. When life gets busy, it’s easy to forget about items that we once paid attention to, so it gets cluttered.

Just because items are now useless to you, doesn’t mean that they can’t be useFUL for someone else. Instead of sitting on items that you don’t need, turn them into a profit.

Selling used products online is a very common thing to do, and an easy way to generate some extra cash, especially if the items are just occupying extra space.

It’s almost summer, the trends are changing, and you want to shop, so why not get rid of what you DON’T need first?  

If you cash out on the old, you can cash in for the new. Now if that doesn’t that sound like a win-win solution, I don’t know what does.

It’s good for the soul to keep a clutter-free life. When you remove the extra junk, there is an inner feeling of ease and serenity. When you throw out junk externally, you’re in-turn, decluttering your inner mind.

The best thing to do is to first assess all your items, then proceed to determine whether or not you use them frequently. You’ll be shocked to realize how much you actually just don’t use.

These assessments should happen a few times a year. If done consistently enough, you’ll find that the unused pile will shrink more and more each time.

When we have a free and clear space, we have the ability to succeed however we choose, because a well-kept environment helps maintain a life of good habits.

It’s proven that a messy environment will also affect your productivity. If the space around you gives of a ‘lazy’ vibe, you too, will feel lazy.

Start these good habits now, and stick to them. Keep up the good habits of getting rid of your extra clutter, because cashing out is always a great option!
