I’m thinking of having a couple yard sales soon (one before I move and the other in the town we’ll be storing a lot of our items while looking for an apartment). We have a ton of stuff, including leftover wedding supplies, that we want to try to recoup some costs on since we can’t take everything with us. Any tips to make sure the yard sale is as successful as can be?

I would make sure to list it on craigslist for sure. Maybe ask some of your neighbors if they would be willing to do a community yard sale so that you can attract more people?

also, if you live in a residential area, consider asking your neighbors if they want to do a block sale – you can all chip in for the costs of advertising, everyone can set up tables, and it usually draws a sizeable crowd. My parents’ subdivison does this every summer, and people love it, because they can shop like 30 yard sales in one fell swoop. And everyone sells a lot of stuff because so many people come.
If you end up with leftover stuff and donate to goodwill/salvation army, you can usually get a tax deduction form (only really useful if you donate a LOT or some expensive stuff).
