Hosting a garage sale is a great way to make some extra cash while clearing out all of your unused tools, toys and more.

But how do you make it a successful sale?

Setting up

Lifestyle expert and author of “Garage Sale America,” Bruce Littlefield tells “Good Morning America” about all the best garage sale tips. It starts with good signage, he said, with the items you're selling and the timeframe for the sale listed out.

“I also put a rope across my driveway,” he says, blocking people from entering until the sale starts. “Anticipation is everything.”

Organize your items

Organize your items by category, Littlefield said, and group bulk items together: Three for $5 books, for example. You can also set up a $1 table for quick and easy selling and create “kits” with miscellaneous items, like a “crafting kit” with various DIY supplies.

Pricing

Garage sale pricing can be tricky if you don't know where to start. For items of value, Littlefield said to check the selling price on a website like eBay. “Don’t look up what somebody has listed it for – you look [at] what it sold for. That will tell you its intrinsic value.”

In general, prices should be 10%-25% of the original cost.

Finally, Littlefield recommends writing price points on a piece of tape and adhering it to your items to avoid damaging them.
