If you've been thinking about having a garage sale here are a few tips on how to run a successful garage sale from 'Consumer Reports':

• Find a partner. Get a neighbour to join in and you can split the advertising costs plus attract more customers with combined items.

• Limit costly items. You’ll get a better price for higher ticket things like pianos or motorboats by advertising them elsewhere.

• No midweek sales. Saturday is usually the best day of the week as people expect sales.

• Clearly mark prices. People will be less likely to buy if they have to keep asking, ‘How much?’
