To me, one of the staples of summer is weekend garage sales. Once the weather starts to warm up, it seems like one can be found in almost any neighborhood. This year, I decided to participate in our subdivision’s annual garage sale in hopes of getting rid of some clutter.
Since I have never prepared for something like this before, I did not expect the amount of preparation that was involved in getting organized for the sale. The biggest element was determining how to price and label items.
Ideally, I wanted to create a price system that was easy for our garage sale crew to interpret. I decided to use color as a way to identify what price range items should be sold at. This would allow our helpers to know how low they could go when negotiating with potential buyers.
