Bruce himself furnished his farmhouse for under $5,000 with finds from garage sales, and says he has picked up some important tips over the years when it comes to hosting a successful sale. Here are some of his suggestions:
- Price items to sell.
- Make sure you post garage sale signs and have your address clearly marked.
- Don't be crabby. "Who wants to go into somebody's yard and meet someone who is not happy to see you?" Bruce says.
- Donate leftover items to charity.
