    Tip!

  • Rattique Storage Tote Whitmor, Inc From $15.28
    Tip!
    Place a "freebie" bin at the curb for items you want to get rid of, no matter what. Also consider a $1 bin of toys to keep kids occupied.

    Some easy listening background music (not too loud) will give your sale a cheerful, relaxed feeling.
