How Yard Sales Can Make You Money

by Pam on July 16, 2012

Do you know what a yardsaler is? A yardsaler is somebody that goes around to yard sales all the time. Now, this is not how you make money, however, being a yardsaler can bring in a lot of extra income if you are smart.  I’ll tell you how.

How can I make money by yardsaling?

The way that you go about making money is you scour all sorts of yard sales for good deals. If you find something that you know you can sell to a friend, on Craigslist or on eBay, then buy it. This is the general way to make money in yard sales, however, there is a different way that I want to talk to you about that works much better.

When is the best time to go to a yard sale?

Many yard sales are run because the homeowner wants to get rid of their stuff. If that is the case, then go to each yard sale as it concludes and see if there is anything left that you can have. A lot of times people will tell you that if you pick everything up that you can have everything  without paying a cent. This is what you want because this is all free stuff. Being that it is free you will have a huge profit margin on these items.

So, that is my secret as to how you can make money at a yard sale. Just keep in mind that other people may be doing this too, so you have to get to the yard sales as soon as they are over.  It also helps to browse Craigslist and Ebay and other sites to see what is selling.  Keep your eyes open for those items as you scour yard sales this summer and see how it works for you.
