Well I held my garage sale this weekend from 8am to 2pm and after advertising and beer expense I made a total of ...80 bucks. Certainly not a fortune but a lot better than nothing.
Other than getting rid of some extra junk I actually learned a few lessons from my first garage sale experience.
1. Your garbage is truly another man’s treasure.
2. Active selling works.
3. People will usually pay more than you think something’s worth (I ended up taking my price tags off half way through)
4. Tax free money sure is sweet.
