How many pounds of unwanted stuff do you have around your middle? The middle of your house I mean!
Much like dieting, there is a little secret that really helps when it comes to shedding those unwanted items. Deciding to have a garage sale is much like deciding to lose weight. Everyone wants to be thin, but no one wants to go on a diet. Everyone really does want to get rid of their stuff, but no one really looks forward to doing the work, right?
Well, my little secret is that, just like dieting, studies have shown that the folks that write things down lose more weight. And I am here to tell you that the folks that write everything down for their garage sale can sell more stuff, make more money, and clean out that clutter like nobody’s business.
So my simple but important tip is write it all down and that means everything. Write down all the items that you want to sell, all the items that you did sell and how much you sold them for, and write down how much money you started with, how much you ended with and how much you made.
This sounds really simple, but I can’t tell you how many people just wing it and don’t write anything down. It takes some discipline, just like dieting, but the rewards are ever so sweet.
In the cold months, you can go through your house and write down everything that you want to have in your next sale. It is a great winter project. So, go for it and reap the rewards in the Spring.
