Have a Summer Yard Sale in Birmingham
Moving presents a great opportunity to have a summer yard sale in Birmingham! It’s the perfect opportunity to declutter, and now that you have an abundance of stuff, you should use it to your advantage and make a few bucks by having a yard sale. Our Birmingham packing company at All My Sons Moving & Storage has tips for hosting a successful yard sale.
The first step to having a summer yard sale is to pick a date. Most people go with Saturday and Sunday mornings, and you’ll get a larger crowd if you start early because people won’t have to interrupt their day to attend your yard sale.
After you’ve decided on a date, create a newspaper ad, make some signs and post on social media. You want to generate as much traffic as possible if you want to make some money and get rid of your stuff.
On the day of your yard sale, our Birmingham packing company recommends having change already set aside. Make sure you have fives, ones and quarters. Make sure you sort all your things before you price them. It makes it easier for your potential buyers and helps to keep your garage sale organized.
If you have young kids, let them help by having a lemonade stand. They will feel like they are involved and helping, and it also keeps them busy while you are making sales. It’s a fun “entrepreneurial” experience for them! Your customers will be hot and thirsty, so why not have some lemonade available for them?
