How to Really “Clean Up” at Your Next Yard Sale

Kurt Rickhoff

May 4, 2017

This time of year is when you often see yard sale signs popping up. For some, holding a yard sale is a means of clearing out unwanted items. For others, it’s an opportunity to get some great “finds.” Whichever side of the yard sale fence you’re on, these tips can help you “clean up”:

Choose your timing carefully. Research continues to show early morning on Saturday is the best time for high volume traffic. If you are looking to shop yard sales, be prepared to set your alarm early on the weekend.

Tune to your local community. If you want to get the word out about your sale (or find one to go to), social media and online community yard sale listings are very effective. You can also post signs if your neighborhood permits this. Also, tell your family, friends and co-workers.

Pay attention to prices. After all the time and effort you put into your yard sale, you don’t want to be stuck with a lot of leftover items—so price your merchandise competitively. Do a little comparison shopping by looking on eBay or other auction sites to get a feel for what prices make sense. For yard sale buyers, you may want to see if the seller is willing to barter a little to get items off their hands—but be realistic, and respectful if you do this.

With these tips and a little bit of luck, whether you’re buying or selling, you should be able to really clean up at your next yard sale!
