How to get great deals at garage sales

If you love going to garage sales and finding great deals, here’s four tips Money Cashers says will help you save money when going to a sale.

First, research online. You can use a garage sales tracker to locate ones in your area and usually items for sale will be listed on the website, which allows you to see if it’s worth the stop.

Second, learn how to negotiate. Don’t show up in your best-dressed wear, form a relationship with the seller through conversations, start a collection, and be willing to walk away.

Third, time your shopping. The earlier you arrive the more likely you’ll get the best items, but arriving last will most likely get you items at a discount.

Last, flip your purchase for profit. If you find an item you can clean up and resale, you’ll earn money with little work.
