At the May Ladies Night Out, I shared the tips and tricks to host a 99 Cent Garage Sale. As you know I have been spending weeks purging the house by going through kitchen drawers, basement, crawl space, closets etc. to get ready for my 99 cent Garage Sale. My good friend and fellow master Frugalista, Sharon was my partner. (This is our second annual 99 cent Garage Sale)
Drum Roll please...here is the results...of our two day 99 cent Garage Sale, we earned $415.87 by selling 420 pieces of stuff…oops I mean treasures…out our houses. What we didn't sell we boxed up and went to Savers to drop off and in return we got a tax donation form and a coupon to shop in the store. Totally Awesome! Can you hear the song playing in your head? Everything is Awesome! Sorry…Lego Movie reference when I divert from blogging and break out into song we call that a SQUIRREL Moment. OK back to the 99 cent Garage Sale!
Here are my FIVE reasons you should do a Frugalista 99 cent Garage Sale vs standard Garage Sale.
1. Pricing is easy. Everything is 99 cents. Here is the deal! Nobody wants to pay more than a buck anyway! If you have stuff that is worth a lot like sports memorabilia that is signed it shouldn't be sold at a garage sale!
2. If you have a partner in the sale, their stuff can be marked using different sticker dot colors. Dollar Tree sells the stickers and garage sale signs.
3. Time saver - you don't waste time pricing because it’s one set price. And you don't go down memory lane on every single item you are putting and waste time.
4. No haggling with customers...yeah!
5. Garage Sale people love a bargain so give them one. Most people walk away with more items because they are priced to sell! You move more quantity of stuff out the door! You get rid of it FAST!
