TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *How to shop at Garage Sales
|Let's talk about how we should go about garage sells when we are buyers. The main point is to be better prepared and getting the best deal out of the already reduced price sale.|
- Make a list of things you need - I have seen impulse shopping at garage sales, just because cost is cheap people tend to buy things and clutter their home. Once I bought a paper shredder and never used before finally selling it on Craigslist two years later. Make a buying list a night before the sale, preferably on Friday night.
- Match your list with garage sale advertisements - Local newspaper, classified sections or the free classified booklets you get in your mail box, scan them through for matching items on sale at a near-by garage sale. Don't hesitate to call up the sellers if you need to inquire for the items that'd be on sale.
- Map out your route - Make sure the matched items from step 1 and 2 above are on your route. Map the sale hopping carefully with gas save in mind. Going first to the sale where maximum match is found worked with me. You may also start from the furthest sale and then gradually come back towards home.
