Help Rid Your Life of Junk: Have a Yard Sale

Yard sales are great places to go find unique items, retro clothes, home furniture, and great deals. With the summer season upon us, yard sales are bound to sprout up all over Orlando just as fast as weeds in your lawn. Not only are yard sales great for the consumer, but having your own yard sale is a great way to get rid of some extra junk and unused items lying around your home and make a quick buck off of them. In celebration of the summer season, Junk Angel, an expert in Orlando junk removal, is offering some great tips and advice for your summer yard sale adventures.

 

Great Learning Opportunity- Many children have not really been taught the value of money, along with how to manage it. Taking your children along with you on a yard sale is a great way to show them thrifty ways to find great deals, manage money, compare between desired items and necessary items, and develop social skills. They can also learn the difference between “second-hand” items and “worthless” items. As the saying goes, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Great Finds- Yard sales are great places to buy unique items and great deals such as:

  • Children’s clothes are low price
  • Toys and games for you children
  • Unique Furniture at bargain prices
  • Old retro items like records and classic books

 

Negotiate- There’s no point in buying a chess set with the king missing. If there is an item you want that has pieces missing or broken parts, negotiate a lower price. It’s expected at yard sales, so don’t feel nervous. When looking for bargains, try going within the last hour of the yard sale when sellers are desperate to get rid of their merchandise.

Where to Look- Websites like Craigslist, gsalr.com and yardsales.net are great ways to find local yard sales if the newspaper is lacking results.

Yard sales are great for not only thrifty shoppers looking for a great deal, but also for families that may have excess clothes and toys the kids grew out of. Why throw away something that is perfectly good, when you can sell it and make some extra spending money? As experts in Orlando junk removal, Junk Angel can remove all of the excess junk you can’t sell (or anything left over from your summer yard sale) with ease.
