Thread Details

It's that time of year again when Garage sales are popular. I have seen some discussion of Garage Sales in regular discussion threads, and perhaps there is talk of it in the BS thread, but I think it would be good to have it's own thread and people can add in the WIKI what sold for them and at what price - or what they will sell it for.

This way people having a garage sale can have a nice reference sheet and can learn from the mistakes of others. I will post in the WIKI info I have read.

Yes, I am having a garage sale this weekend at a friends work. I have read some info on another site and it is nice that they have their own thread for this.

Garage sales are not for everyone, please no bashing on those who wish to do it. It's a way to make money to buy more coupons and fuel your 'addiction'. LOL!

Mods, if you think this would be better suited in a different forum, please advise or move. I just thought it would be good to have a garage sale discussion and a WIKI to boot to help others.

Thanks!

Vicki

Just wanted to tell anyone who got some of the Gillette Sensor Excel cartridges on clearance at CVS, you might wanna sell those on the bay instead of at your yardsale. I got them free so I was happy to mark them $2 but I ended up looking them up on ebay and I sold 4 of them for $25 shipped, so after shipping and ebay/paypal fees I made $5 each instead of $2, I sold 3 lots of them!
I do this with all the carts I buy, the Gillette mach 3 ones I had sold fast too.

I have never tried to sell on eBay. Is there a place to learn about how to sell on eBay? Thanks!

For me Reds always go first (and from a natural redhead, that blows my mind), then blacks, then blonds and finishing with all the browns (there are way too many effing browns and the ash browns always go absolutely last).

Go to the ebay boards (similar to here and start reading. I know that's not much help, but there really isn't a tutorial on how to sell, I take that back, there are e-books, but the info is there for free with research and time.

How much do you sell the Culturelle for? I have a ton of kid's and adults from the Wags sales recently.
I price at $5, I have a lady that buys it for her son--he can't be without it--so she takes it all when I have it..............
It's just a matter of that one person (or persons) that can't be without it and them finding that you have it and they'll clear out your stock. I don't do the kids, just the adult, so I'm assured it won't be coming back home with me Smilie

It really depends on your customer base. Brown sells the best for me, then red- black is slow and blonde is a very slow seller with my customers.

It only sells for most $3 a box. Don't put much $$ into it. Depends where you live. I'm in FL and blonde colors fly, can't have enough. Darks don't sell as fast, but do sell. When I was in TX, darks flew, blondes sat untouched. Reds are in the middle for me.

Sometimes I feel so guilty about selling my $.99 Wet and Wild fingernail polish. I can mix it with the more expensive polishes and sell it for $1.25 without issue.

No guilt. If people are willing to pay it, take the $$ and silently laugh!

I price it at $1. Revlon, $2
The W&W that is $1.49 in store, I priced at $1.50, cause I bought some at Wag's last time coupons were out, just so that she didn't have to adjust coupon, so I paid .49 + tax for it and wanted to recoup.

I price it all at $1.50. I bought some Sinful a while back as fillers at Wags and threw it in with the Revlon that I had at $1.50. I planned to make it a new bin with $1 on it but the Sinful sold faster than the Revlon at $1.50 so I left it.

I picked up 30 to 40 of the MM Fiber Choice 10 count tubes this week - has anyone sold these before and at what price? ($2.29 regular price at SFW)

I know this was discussed some in the past but I searched and wasn't finding it, so please forgive the repeat question.

I'm looking for a good way to electronically track my inventory. Ideally I want a system where I can scan items as I get them and then scan them as I sell them and the software will keep track of the inventory for me. I understand initial setup of anything will likely involve me manually typing in what products are associated with the barcodes I'm scanning.

I need something relatively quick to operate (when I have sales I am very busy and can't be dealing with a scanner system that is slow). I'm willing to invest a decent amount of money in something that meets my needs if I have to,

Is there anything out there that you all have used or know of that could help me out? TIA!

Do you have a smartphone? I'd have to think there's an app for that.

I did some research into this last year. I found a few Android apps that were strong on the inventory side but very weak on the sales side. Or, strong on the sales side but lacked the ability to scan in barcodes. Also, apps were clunky - not good for when lines were building on the sales side.

I didn't look into iPad/iPhone apps.

Once I moved beyond apps, the software/scanners/etc. were more sophisticated for my needs. Many of them seemed to concentrate on the inventory, invoicing, & customer/order management side. The POS systems that had an integrated inventory function were just too big ( and expensive) for what I do.

I decided to keep doing it the semi-old-fashioned way - googledocs is my friend.

I'd be very interested in what you choose.
