It is necessary to purge our homes once in a while to take out all those items we don't need anymore. Hence, a garage sale is surprisingly important. One summer, a couple of neighborhood girlfriends and I decided to declutter our homes and have a garage sale. We mostly had loads of kiddie stuff to get rid of, but if we are honest with ourselves, do you need 27 coffee mugs? After a successful yard sale, you will breathe some fresh air in your home and find better ways to enjoy your newly acquired space.
Garage sales may seem quite simple, but you will be surprised how tactful you need to be to have a successful yard sale. Each of us had tried garage sales on our own before, and none had much success getting traffic to our sale. No way, no how were those "treasures" coming back into our newly pristine homes!
So, it turns out that having garage or yard sale takes much more than just setting up all the stuff you want to sell on your yard. You have to put a little creativity and strategic effort into it. We wanted to bring some fun to our yard sale, so I hit up Pinterest for some inspiration. There, the idea of garage sale signs and for sale signs was born.
With two little kids at home though, there was no time for me to pull out the poster board and sharpies. Oh no. I was going to print those puppies out!
Here are a few yard sales signs I made. Feel free to download them and print out yourself. Just write in your details in the blank space with a dark colored permanent marker.
These garage sale signs will undoubtedly bring some traffic and excite your guests. We got a few good laughs out of them from our guests. I hope you do too!
