1. Start by taking inventory around your home of things that are taking up space. Decide which items you really don't need and make a list of these items. Clean out your attic, basement, closets and garage. If you are honest about what you really need the list will grow if you look over your household a second or third time. You might want to price items as you go to save yourself from staying up all night before your sale. This is also a good time to jot down notes about things you might want to mention in advertisements.
3. Set up an attractive sale area. Cover your display tables with colorful cloths. Don't hesitate to use bright colors and patterns. Effective display is essential to your success. Use eye-catching balloons and/or flags and set big eye-catching items out front to compel those window shoppers to stop.
4. Make sure everything is clean and sparkling, including tools, gardening equipment and bicycles. Polish furniture and make sure clothing is washed and hung on racks or clothes lines. Clear away clutter and put away items that are not for sale.
