Spring Cleaning Money Making and Saving Tips!
Tip #1: Before you start spring cleaning get your supplies! Go to your local Dollar Tree any local store and pick yourself up some $1 trash bags, cleaning supplies and any thing else you see that can help you with this job. If you have a Dollar Tree near you this will be super easy to do with a $5- $10 budget. (Click Here for the latest Dollar Tree Freebies!)
Tip #2: Dedicate a certain area of your house to put all of the toys, clothes or misc things you would like to sell in a yard sale. Also dedicate a place in your home for trash and donations. Please make sure to keep all of these places labeled in some way so nothing gets mixed up. Nothing worse then throwing away a perfect good bag of clothes by accident (I’ve sadly done this before and it wasn’t pretty).
Tip #3: Did you know you can receive a tax refund for donations? Just take any donations you have to your local offices, keep the receipt for the donation and then file it away for next years taxes!
Tip #4: Grab your yard sale signs from the Dollar Tree! Let your kids help and get them some poster paper and glitter pens for $1 Each! You can make 3 posters and 2 packs of glitter pens for only $5!
Tip #5: Serve some delicious lemonade, koolaide (or a hot drink) While holding your yard sale. Offer a free cup for your costumers while they shop.
Tip #6: Don’t over price your items! Nothing worse then finding something you really love at a yard sale to only find out its almost as much as RV. Be open to bartering if they want to purchase more then one item.
Tip #7: Hold a Raffle for the best yard sale item you can offer, who ever purchases an item will receive a ticket with a number on it. Ask for the customers to stay or come back at a certain time (or you can ask the costumers to leave their email address’s on a piece of paper) When the winner is picked announce it at the dedicated time OR email the winner letting them know they have won! You can ask them to come pick up the prize or ship it to them.
