Things to remember:

• Having one table or area sorted by price (i.e. the $1 table) can also be appealing.

• Know that many people may try to haggle, so on larger items over $100, it doesn't hurt to raise the price slightly over what you hope to get. Still, remember that the main goal of a garage sale is to get rid of stuff, so don't price too high and scare away buyers.

• If you are selling electronics or other equipment, make sure to emphasize that all sales are final but have a power cord handy so potential buyers can confirm that everything works.

• Get more small bills and quarters than you think you'll need and keep cash on your body or have one person be the cash handler at a table (and not move).

• Don't be afraid to mark down your prices (and put up a sign saying "Reduced Prices") later in the morning or when things start to slow down. Bargain hunters will be drawn to your sale prices.
