As sale day approaches, work through all your items and prepare them for sale.

Put small items, such as jewelry, in plastic sandwich bags, roll the bag tops down, staple them shut, and price the items. This will keep sets together and chains untangled.

Wash all clothing items, fold them neatly, and place each in a plastic bag and price. Alternatively, hang items on hangers on a clothing rack, sorting by item (i.e., all men's shirts together, all skirts together, etc.).

Clean all tools. Make sure electric and gas power tools operate and have manuals with them.

In general, only try to sell items that are undamaged and in good working order. However, some people may be interested in broken items for parts or they may be interested in getting the item repaired. Just be aware that these items may not sell and you may have to dispose of them after the sale.
