Spring is springing and that means garage sale season is here! That’s why we’ve got great garage sale tips for you. This is the best time to go through those closets, the actual garage, the attic, and even the basement and clean out all that gently used stuff that YOU are no longer using. After that, you can reward yourself with new custom cabinets or garage storage solutions to tidy up what’s left.
To help you make the best of your yard sale we’ve included links to several great sites. This link from wisebread.com has a list of garage sale items that sell the best. If you’re trying to decide whether or not to put those teapots out with the garage sale or take them straight to Goodwill, this article is a great place to start.
Not sure how to price items at your garage sale? The best garage sale tips on pricing can be found here. This site also includes great information on permits for garage sales and advertising too.
When planning for a garage sale, and what to actually put out, we like to stick with the Marie Kondo method: does it bring you joy? If you’ve got tents lying around from your backpacking days, but all they’re doing is irritating you because they take up space, it might be time to let them go. If that extra set of dishes is taking up space that could be used for your bar glass collection, then sell the dishes!
We understand lots of items have sentimental value. However, if you’re feeling stressed and anxious because some of those sentimental items are making it hard for you to keep your house tidy, or are leaving you without room to store necessary items, it’s time to take a hard look at what needs to stay and what can go.
If you decide that what you really need is just better storage, we’d love to help! At SpaceCreators we can create great custom closets, custom pantries, and even custom garage storage solutions for you. Call us at (970) 234-0039 to get started!
