Hold a sale (and keep it real)

Date:11 January 2013 Tags:, ,

Your winning hint in last month’s issue (“Post-mortem responsibility sucks”) was the first step towards de-cluttering your house; your next move is to organise a garage sale to get rid of your unwanted goods. Having conducted several such sales myself, I can offer four essential tips: hold the sale at month-end, when the punters are likely to have money; affix a price sticker to every item (this way, you have a starting point for the inevitable haggle); group similar items to-gether; don’t be greedy (if your asking price isn’t far off the regular retail price, you’re living in dreamland).
