Host an Earth Rangers garage sale!
Ask a parent to help you collect used items from around your home – don’t collect anything that you don’t have permission to sell. Next, pick a day for your garage sale and let people know when and where it’s happening by going out with an adult and putting up posters around your neighbourhood. When the big day comes, put all the items you’re planning to sell on display and make sure the prices are clearly marked. When you’re done, you’ll have decluttered your house while raising money for animals in need!
- Look at the forecast and try to pick a day with good weather for your garage sale. Weekends are a popular time for garage sales so you might want to try a Saturday or Sunday morning!
- Write the prices out neatly and tape the price tags on or close to your items.
- Make sure you have lots of coins and small bills available so you can easily make change for your shoppers.
- Put out a donation box to see if people are willing to donate anything extra.
