First Storage Garage Sale

First Storage Garage Sale
« on: April 12, 2014, 03:49:20 PM »
Well we just did our first Storage Garage Sale. We did a one day sale from 8-4 on a Saturday and so far we have cleared almost $300. I had already made my money back and more on the 3 of the 4 lockers I had picked up in the past few months and these were the smalls with some furniture mixed in. Pretty stoked as a whole. I plan on doing this a lot more when summer comes around.

I love garage sales. That's the best way to get rid of the smalls and common everyday items. They really add up quick.

The one downside to garage sales is that some towns limit how many you can host in a year.

Yeah, our town requires a permit and limits it to 3 per year. Ridiculous if you ask me. When I lived in Houston, I just rented a parking lot on weekends. May have still needed a permit, but I never bothered with it. Figured that if the garage sale police ever did show up, I could just play dumb.

In my town they "ordinance" is 10 cumulative days per year. Don't it'd come into play unless someone complains.
