The success of your yard sale also depends on factors such as the type of items you have, location, parking, and how clean and presentable the overall yard sale looks.

We have found that since the kids moved out we have a sale about every two years. Our ongoing remodeling projects also fuel yard sales. On rainy days, I go into a room and just start taking out items that I no longer need or use. It only takes a short time to clean and price a few items. With all these boxes stacked, marked, and ready for the sale, I just need to sort the merchandise onto the tables, relax, and enjoy the day.

A fun way to involve your kids with the sale is to purchase soda pop on sale prior to your planned yard sale. Then, the day before the sale, have them put the pop into an ice chest ready to sell the next day. Let them sell the pop for 75 each—people get thirsty and it's a great way to teach kids how to earn and handle money.

The tips in this series of articles have helped us hold successful yard sales—I believe they will do the same for you.
