Security Wristbands Help Indicate Price Levels at Garage Sale

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.

To communicate prices, I ultimately chose to use the Tyvek Security Wristbands. The colorful bands would allow us to tag all of the sale items to help us identify how much to charge for each item.

The wristbands have many different features making them the perfect C-Line item for our garage sale. Here are a few reasons why I selected this product.

  • Color: The bands are available in five different colors, so each one represented a price range that the item could be sold for.
  • Waterproof: In case our garage sale was rained out, the Tyvek material would be able to withstand less than ideal circumstances.
  • Peel-Off Adhesive Liner: This seal allowed me to wrap the band around the item in order to secure it. For example, I wrapped the band loosely around a handle on a desk.
  • Single-Use: Once the item was sold, we would simply cut the band off the item without causing any damage or leaving any residue.

Although these wristbands are typically used at events for crowd control purposes, they became a great tool to use as we prepped for the big neighborhood garage sale.
