How To Have A Moving Sale

Moving would be easy were it not for all the tchotchkes you end up schlepping along. What better way to lighten your load than by having a moving sale? Five Cent Nickel has several tips to help your extra stuff move:

  • Separate out anything that’s easily eBay-able;
  • Advertise, advertise, advertise;
  • Price your stuff to sell;
  • As much as possible, price things by category;
  • Build in bulk discounts;
  • Check any and all pockets before putting an item out for sale;
  • Be prepared to negotiate;
  • Get your kids involved;
  • Donate whatever doesn’t sell.
    Remember that unlike a yard sale, the goal of a moving sale is to empty your house, not fill your pockets. — CAREY GREENBERG-BERGER
