Cost of Garage Sales

May 3rd, 2008 at 07:49 pm

I'm holding a garage sale late next week. I shopped today for poster board and price stickers. I spent $8.36 on these supplies. Now it may turn out that I will be able to return a piece of poster board or a package of price stickers.

I also put a 3 day advertisement in our local paper for $28.00!! That is for 6 lines of print. It seems a little pricey, too. Maybe I should own a newspaper...Smile

Now, I will be splitting these costs with my neighbor with whom I am having the garage sale. I'm sure I could have done it much more frugal, by making a sign out of cardboard or using masking tape for prices.

I hope that my advertisement, neon yellow signs and clearly marked prices bring us large profits. We both have many nice things to sell.

    I made our garage sale signs about 6 years ago. Each year, I just cut a piece of matching neon posterboard to change the date and tape it over the original sign. So I've gotten several years of use out of the same signs. Just be sure to go out after the sale and take them down before they get messed up.
