ERA Evergreen



Apr 16 3 minutes read

Welcome in the season of yard sales! As the weather warms, it's the ideal time to clear your home and sell your unwanted stuff. But, before you set up shop in your front yard, make sure you have everything you'll need for a successful sale. Following this checklist will help you prepare for a successful spring yard sale. Remember to keep organized, communicate with consumers, and have fun! Here's a simple checklist to get you ready. Happy selling!


Take inventory of items you plan to sell. Sort through your belongings and decide what you want to keep, donate, or sell. Categorize items to make it easier to organize your sale.

Pricing Supplies 

Gather pricing supplies such as stickers, tags, markers, and price guns. Clearly mark each item with its price to avoid confusion during the sale. Consider pricing items competitively to attract buyers.


Tables and Displays 

Collect tables, racks, and other display fixtures to showcase your items. Arrange them in a way that is visually appealing and easy for shoppers to navigate. Use tablecloths or sheets to cover surfaces and create a cohesive look.



Create eye-catching signs to attract passersby to your sale. Include the date, time, and location of the sale, as well as any special deals or featured items. Place signs strategically around your neighborhood to direct traffic to your yard.



Spread the word about your yard sale through online platforms, social media, community bulletin boards, and local newspapers. Consider creating a Facebook event or posting flyers in high-traffic areas to reach a broader audience.


Cash Box  

Prepare a cash box with plenty of change to provide customers with the option to pay with cash. Keep your cash box secure and easily accessible throughout the sale.  

Bags and Packaging

Have a supply of bags, boxes, and wrapping materials on hand for customers to transport their purchases. Consider offering discounts for shoppers who bring their reusable bags.



Keep your shoppers comfortable and happy by offering refreshments such as water, lemonade, or snacks. Consider setting up a small refreshment stand to encourage visitors to stay longer.

Cleanup Supplies

Finally, don't forget cleanup supplies such as trash bags, brooms, and disinfectant wipes. Keep your sale area clean and tidy throughout the event, and dispose of any unsold items responsibly.
