Slow Economy Increases Garage Sales



Garage sale permits are increasing by anywhere from ten percent to fifty percent in 2008 than in 2007.

Many people are having garage, or yard sales, to sell a few unused items in order to make a quick buck. Making enough to simply fill the gas tank or a week of groceries is the goal of many home owners.

Make the most money from your garage sale as possible but be willing to lower prices to what customers will pay to be sure to sell everything and not be left with items to give away. $1.00 for a full sack is better than not selling it at all.
