How to throw a garage sale

Make a list of things you want to give away
Make a quick list and categorize household items that need to be thrown or given away. Make a note of things that are no longer used. For instance you may have been holding on to an old stroller or an old crib you don’t need any more. Don’t forget to label things properly.
Advertise your garage sale by placing signs around the neighborhood
You can get some pamphlets printed for your garage sale. Make some attractive sign boards with card-boards and bright painting colors if you don’t want to spend money on the pamphlets. You can use some creative captions to attract people’s attention.
Use a cash register to keep track of all the transactions
A cash register will help you keep a record of transactions. It will also help you provide receipts to people who make the payment by credit cards.
