Once again I'm asking for your advice! We're going to be having a yard sale on May 2nd & 3rd, weather permitting. (We were going to do it last weekend, but storms were in the forecast, so we postponed it.) We've been getting things together & pricing, but I could use any suggestions you have.
Here are some specific questions:
How much cash should you start off with in the box? What's the breakdown?
What's the best way to sort/display clothing? We've got a LOT of clothing to sell.
How do you get everything set up by the time you want to open? (Getting up earlier than 5 a.m. is out of the question.)
How do you handle a toddler while you're having a yard sale??
I'm no stranger to yard sales; my family had several while I was growing up, and I had to help with them. I'm good with a cash box, and I'm a pretty good pricer, too. But I have yet to have a yard sale that I think went smoothly. There's always something - extra trips to the bank for more cash, doing without lunch because I didn't plan ahead, or not being able to keep things organized during the sale.
So please, share your wisdom with me. And stop by my yard sale May 2nd & 3rd...
