Garage sale business idea for kids
Did you know that setting up garage sales are kind of a problem and kind of a pain for people to do. If you see neighbors that look like they’re rearranging their garage, with a parent go up to your neighbor and say, “Hey, do you need some help setting up your garage sale.”
What do you have to do to make a garage sale?
Okay let’s make a little list.
- You have to make some great big signs
- You have to get all the stuff being sold together and organized.
- You might even want to recruit the neighbors. You could say, “Hey I’ll go out and tell all the neighbors on the block that you’re going to have a garage sale and see if they want to contribute some things.”
Garage sale signs need to be big. You can also run local ads online for garage sales. Post to the classifieds on websites like Craigslist. You can also post on your neighborhood’s social media accounts like their Twitter and Instagram page.
Go over the day before the garage sale to see if there is any last minute tasks you need to complete. In the morning when you have to get up really early since people will start coming at dawn.
Garage sales can be a great way for you to make some money. You can negotiate with your neighbors for commision by saying, “I’ll help you sell your stuff if you give me 25% of the total sale.” Most garage sales make several hundred dollars so for working all morning on a Saturday and making a few signs, you could make 40 – 50 dollars. Not bad right? So that’s an awesome way to make some money.
