World’s Longest Garage Sale 2014 Tips

  1. Plan Overnight Lodging or Camping well ahead of time. This is a very popular event, and there are not many large towns along the route.
  2. Visit Craigslist on Tuesday or Wednesday before the event, and make a list of sales that you can’t miss. Plan your trip around those sales.
  3. Plan for bad weather and excessive heat. Make sure that your air conditioner works in your vehicle and check your coolant levels. Bring an extra T-shirt in case you get sweaty. Make sure you have a large cooler with plenty of water (or adult beverages, if you are not driving). Bring an umbrella and rain jacket. You may also want a light jacket for AM garage saling at the north end of the WLGS.
  4. Bring LOTS OF QUARTERS and $1 BILLS.
  5. Make sure you have enough room for all your garage sale finds. Bring broken-down boxes that you can open up and place finds in. Bring a trailer for larage items, or if you are going to hits lots of sales. At least have a pickup truck or large vehicle. If you are a garage sale reseller, you can find enough stuff to sell for months.
  6. Do your research ahead of time, so you know what types of items that you are looking for. For a large list of over 520 items that you can find to resell for under $1, check out our e-book Almost Free Money!
