Yard Sale Plans and New Car Fund Deposit

August 23rd, 2017 at 05:30 pm

So...plans for the yard sale are taking shape. Saturday, 9/2/17 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The items for sale will be tagged and priced. Between myself, my better half and kids, each one of us will add our initials to our item(s) to ensure the money is paid out accurately.

I, for one will be adding my proceeds to the New Car Fund, which was funded a few times this past week so progress continues.

I am pretty excited about the "sale". Again, I have never coordinated one but really enjoy going to them. This time, I am going to try to market it for a full scale "blue lite special". Let's hope for good weather and spendy visitors.

    Good luck! Are your kids selling bottles of water or snacks? I see that a lot arund here.

    Wow! What a great idea. I can get a 32 count pack of water for $4.00 plus $1.60 recycling deposit for a total outlay of $5.60. If I sell each bottle for $.50, that's $16.00. Less my initial investment of $5.60, that's a profit of $10.40 per pack. Plus....I can return the bottles and get my $1.60 recycling deposit back!

    Snacks? Hmmmmmmm.....???? Thoughts....I do have a dollar general three miles from my house. Any ideas on items I can purchase there and mark up for resale at the yard sale? Any experience?
