Does your community have an annual yard sale, or is this your first? Either way, there are steps that your committee can take that will make this year's yard sale a great one.
Set The Date - With winter almost finished and gorgeous spring weather ahead, there are several options you can take. Spring break is one possibility, as kids will be home to help. If you think too many people will be out of town for spring break, still consider having your yard sale before Easter. That's when people are looking for good deals on spring clothes, on home decor to spruce their homes up after winter, and on yard equipment, as people prepare for their summer gardens.
Advertise - Just remember that the more people who come to your sale, the more money individual families will make. When you have your planning meeting, remember to budget for advertising. However, you certainly don't need to spend a lot of money to get the word out. Use handmade posters, flyers, and have older kids deliver flyers door to door.
Don't Forget Portable Toilets- Will you be using the community center parking lot for one massive sale, or will shoppers go from house to house? Even if your community center has a bathroom, you don't want the masses having to rely on it. Consider renting portable toilets (from outlets such as Mathena Septic Tank Service).
Congratulations on planning your community yard sale early.Share

Do you know what to look for when it comes to finding a great team of professional contractors? I sure didn't until a few years ago, which was why I started focusing on doing everything I could to choose a team of experts that really understood what I was up against. I knew that the first step in making the construction process easy would be to work with great contractors, so I did everything I could to learn what I needed to in order to decide if they were right for my family and project. This blog is all about finding great contractors that can help you to streamline your project.
