There’s something about spring that makes you want to get organized. Once the weather gets warmer you see spring cleaning, yard work and planting and that staple of American domestic life, the spring yard sale. Spring sales are a great way to declutter your home, get rid of unwanted items and maybe even make a little money.

Doing Prep Work for Your Spring Sale
A big part of putting together a Spring yard sale is the prep work before the sale starts. According to Angie’s List, the most successful sales involve doing a lot of work in the days leading up to the event. A big part of that is grouping like items together and categorizing them. You want to keep the books and toys you’re selling separated from the power tools and furniture.
Using a portable storage container for your sale is a great way to organize your goods, particularly if you’re running a sale to raise funds for an organization and you’re accepting donations, you need a centrally located storage area to keep your sales items. Even if you’re going at it alone, renting a portable storage container makes organization a lot easier and solves tricky issues like lugging furniture to your sales site.
A.B. Richards has 40ft storage containers available if you need to store larger items or a large number of items, while our 40ft Jumbo storage units give you an extra foot of headroom to help store awkwardly shaped items.
If you have a large number of items, it may not be a great idea to jam everything on your tables at the same time. You might want to hold some items back in storage. Another thing to be careful about displaying is clothing. Bad weather like rain can ruin clothing, so you may need a place to stash clothing quickly. It’s good to have a portable storage container nearby.
Another reason to have your storage unit ready is for when the sale is over. You’re probably not going to sell everything. If you’re serious about decluttering you’ll want to consider making a charitable donation of your remaining items. Or you might want to hold them overnight if you want to extend the sale an extra day.
