Promoting Your Garage Sale!

When you’re packing for that big move, you’re left with a huge pile of unwanted items. You want to donate some of your junk, but then you realize how much money you could make just by selling them yourself. You decide that you could sell them online for extra bucks, but then you have to take pictures, give descriptions for every single item, and you’re most likely going pay for hosting fees at the website of your choice. You’re moving, and you just don’t have time and the effort to do all that. A garage sale is ultimately your best option when moving! It’s a fast and easy way to get rid of the majority of your items all in one day. But now that you have your items, you need to start promoting your garage sale!


Posting a status online to tell your friends and family about your garage sale is the easiest most convenient way of getting the word out. In many cases, they could also share your status to their friends! Of course, statuses are just words! Perhaps taking photos of some of the items that you are selling will look more enticing them! After all, a little effort goes a long way.


A community of people look at this website for classified advertisements all day. Some people are dedicated enough to search for garage sales around their area. Ultimately, it is the best way to communicate to your city without having to leave the comfort of your own home. When done effectively, you’ll definitely see more people passing by your driveway to take a look at what you have to offer.

Newspaper Ad

While many people look at Craigslist for a one stop ad, there is a mass of people who picks up the newspaper, and they are looking for information. This is also one of the best ways to communicate to your community without having to leave your home. Keep in mind that newspaper ads, are not always the thriftiest way as you might have to shell out some money of your own to get the word out, but if you’re looking to sell valuable items and you’re confident that you will receive that money back by selling these items at your garage sale, then  this will be one of your best options.

Community Posters

This is the most traditional way of letting everyone know that you’re hosting a garage sale due to moving. Making posters are not only a fun way to bond with family members, but they could be used as a way to attract attention! Simply post them near your community so that your neighbors will see them!
