A great activity to bring everyone together is conducting a neighborhood garage sale. Instead of families planning, organizing, and holding garage sales on their own, the entire neighborhood can get in on the act and plan one together. The main reason to pool together is to get more foot traffic to your sale. Another benefit is the division of labor for promoting the event. With more people participating, you can get more flyers up around town, spread the news through word of mouth, or even pool together resources to promote and advertise your event in the local newspaper. We’ve even heard of larger neighborhood groups promoting their sales through paid advertisements on local radio stations.
So if you’ve been looking to unload a lot of stuff that’s collecting dust in your garage, such as that old bedroom set with the cheap mattress, or the kitchen furniture that has been needing a replacement for a while, get your neighbors together and think about putting on a garage sale to end all garage sales.
