5. Know When To Pass
In my years of garage sale-ing, I’ve found that some people just don’t want to budge. Sometimes wives force their husbands into giving their items away or perhaps they are upset that they are losing money on an item, even if they never used it. When it comes to that point, the best “negotiation” you can do is simply walking away. Garage sales are all about you getting a good deal and the seller getting to rid their home of excess. If you don’t get the deal you want and overspend, you won’t be happy in the long run, so stay sharp and only pay what you intended.
