How to Run a 5K Garage SaleFrom the Purge to the Profits

Selling used goods from a driveway, a yard, or the interior of a home has been referred to as a garage sale, a yard sale, a tag sale, and on occasion a rummage sale. People hold these one-to three-day events to raise money or to get rid of unwanted household, lawn, or garden items. Although these sales are a lot of work, they are a great way to purge a home and turn unwanted, used items into profit.
