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

PLEASE NOTE: This WIKI is a reference guide to price the items you may have. Know your states laws before selling new unopened items or medicine. Laws vary from state to state, and can from city to city on what is allowed to be sold at a garage sale or flea market. Sell at your own risk. Thanks!

Garage Sale Tips:
- Use a muffin tin to keep coin denominations separated.
- A fishing tackle box is a great way to keep money safe and organized - coins separated in the compartments, and bills underneath. Some even have locks
- Use a carpenter's apron with pockets in the front. Works great, bills and .5 and .10 on one side, .25 on the other. It goes with you, for safety and convenience. Works great for school concession stands too..


Prices here in the wiki show a range of prices SDers have gotten for each product/item.

*Please post what you sold items at in your individual post - and if you are in a big metropolis or not - this sometimes makes a difference.*

I'm not the one who originally posted about it but just search FB for buy/sell/trade and your area. It may take some tries to find them. Search under your town, county, area, etc.

I've found a few in my area and it's going well so far.

For some reason, Irish Spring bar soap is on me minds. Just wondering. Do y'all do better selling them as a 6 pack or do you break them open to sell one bar at a time?

I'm in Alabama and honestly my wife found it, but a ton of my friends are on it. Matter of fact, the local news station (well 40 miles away local) just did a story on FB garage sales. I'm in an area of probably 150,000 and one site has over 10,000 members. So a decent percent of people see it especially if you take out children and probably a large number of older people.

I'd start by searching your city name and put Garage Sale on the end. That's how most of the ones I'm a member of are set up.

I have added/plan to add a few new things to my sell stock pile and really need some pricing suggestions.

Quilted northern extra plush (3 ply) 9 big rolls- I can't find this size online to even get a starting point Besides walgeens who has it for 6.39 on sale on line but i'm not sure their pricing is correct.

Velveeta cheesy skillet dinner kits

pampers jumbo packs- I read 6-6.50 but i wasn't sure if this was for normal size or bigger packs.

Other questions i have

Might pick up some pantene this week at cvs Is there a certain type that seems to sell best?

i saw some people mention hair color prices. I don't use hair color so not too familiar with them but what brands would be considered higher end. i know stuff like john frieda for sure but what price range would Revlon fall under?

TIA
For me stylers sell much faster then shampoo/cond. But this week I've been using my bogo pantene coupons on the new pantene expert, those are reg price like $9.29 and are on sale $3.50, the bogo coupon takes off $4.99 so it ends up $1 a bottle, going to mark them $3!

Arab, Scottsboro or approx Rogersville (I'm in Toney ...just north of Huntsville)? The story didn't tell you HOW to join a group though.

I used to be a CVS shopper all the time, and then just got to busy for it, but decided to do this Pantene deal on my way to work this morning, and maybe jump into a regular CVS'r again. My cashier put them all in for 3.50, so I returned them. Is this the norm for Cvs's, or did I just get a bad cashier. I so wanna go back tonight and hope they have a young person that isn't acting like its comming out of his pocket, lol. Just wondering if it's probably the cashier, or perhaps this stores policy. Thanks in advance. You guys have a lot of great ideas, and I applaud you for being so creative with your finances,

Overage from a q autoing is YMMV. P&G Q's say in the fine print something along the lines of "not to exceed purchase price; excess not to be given to customer or applied to other purchases". Stores around won't let them auto anymore...

Reps are back...for now. Stick Out Tongue I owe loads of gratitude to everyone that got me where I am! Read the *NEW* CVS FAQ and post your questions there. Let's keep the deal threads deal-related, please.
Would it kill you to read the wiki? Or to read the thread? All the experts got to where they are by reading...you can too.

it is supposed to be put in for the sale price but sometimes you get lucky. Depends on the cashier.

I'm actually in Tuscaloosa...well Northport to be exact. All you have to do is ask to join a group. Most of them are closed groups and you have to be approved by whoever is the admin. Once approved, you can approve. They all have different rules. I have to imagine if Tuscaloosa and Northport have FB Garage Sale sites then Huntsville must.

I bought some when there was a $10 ECB wyb $30 deal. I also had some 20% off coupons as well. Can't remember the exact amount I paid, but I sold 4 of them for $5 each to one lady that buys a good bit from me. Still have 4 more that are the Age Defy that haven't sold, but shampoo normally doesn't last more than about 2 weeks selling on Facebook. If it lasts longer than that I may have to adjust the price down to $4.

I'm going to buy some pampers to sell in my next Yard Sale. Would the best ones to sell be the pampers baby dry or pampers baby cruisers. Also would size 3 be the best. Thanks!
