Yard Sale Safety
Yard sales are fun, and a great way to make
money, but don't let a good idea turn into a bad day. Here are a few tips on how
to have a safe yard sale:
enough help to keep track of all the people and your property. If someone
steals your stuff, don't risk confrontation. It's not worth getting injured,
just call the police.
keep a lot of money on you. Have $20 in change and lock the rest in the
your most expensive items together and near you. In some cases, you may want
to display a picture and only display the item upon request.
sure your house and garage are secure. Someone may try to sneak in a back
door while you're busy elsewhere.
display items or extension cords that could cause someone to trip and fall.
finally, don't sell any items that are marked with your social security
number. Check for money and important papers in purses and clothes before
you set them out.
