Garage Sale Tips, Part 1


 Our sub is having a sub wide garage sale this coming weekend.  It starts in 2 days and I am not quite ready.  Since this is a yearly event, I have done quite a few of them.  I thought I would share some of my favorite tips.


One tip is "DON"T to wait to the last minute to set up" which is what  I did  again this year..  This is how my garage looks right now.  It  seriously looks like a toy store exploded in my garage. There are toys everywhere!  Now that they kids no longer play with their toys, I told them it was time for them to sell them.  We have more toys than we know what to do with.   When it is all set up, there will be quite a nice selection of boys and girls toys.  Parents are either going to love me or hate me when they visit our house.  




Another tip for today is about tables.  Did you know that Ikea sells table tops for only $6 and legs for $3.50 each. I just found that out myself.  The legs can be removed, so it makes  for easy storing.  I bought two tables  for under $20 a piece.  They are a really nice size, and will hold a lot of stuff. After the sale,  I plan on putting them in my craft room. I am also going to use them for upcoming parties, because they make perfect banquet tables. 

Well I better get back to work, the sale is in only two days.   Stay tuned for Part 2 and more tips!
