If you're like many busy gardeners, your garden shed isn't as organized as it could be. Perhaps you've been telling yourself for quite some time that you're going to get around to giving it an organizational makeover but run short on inspiration whenever you try to brainstorm a game plan. You've probably got items in and around your home that can easily be repurposed as containers for various garden supplies in your garden shed. Following are just five suggestions and how they can be used. 

Milk Crates

Milk crates make excellent all-purpose containers for a variety of items. Because they're stackable and easily labeled, you can easily customize them to meet your individual needs and preferences. They're good for keeping bottles and boxes of garden chemicals organized. Simply stack them in a corner or along a wall with the labels facing outward.

Bushel Baskets

If you buy fruit in bulk from a local orchard, you probably have a few stray bushel baskets hanging around waiting to be used for something. They're ideal for storing loose potting soil. For instance, when you're cleaning up your hanging baskets, window boxes and other containers after the season is over, you can easily empty the potting soil into bushel baskets so you can use it again in the spring. 

Toy Chests

Have your children outgrown their toy chests? If so, you can use them in your garden shed to store a variety of things. They're good for keeping garden sweaters and gloves handy, and they can also be used as dry storage for seeds. You can even keep a few snacks in them to keep them safe from rodents or bugs. 

Flower Pots and Planters

Keeping a few empty flower pots that you no longer use on hand provides an ideal catch-all place for any stray items that you aren't quite sure what to do with. Think small items such as plant tags, half-full seed packets and even the occasional garden glove that doesn't seem to have a mate can all find temporary homes in an empty flower.

Bookshelves 

If a recent or current home remodeling project leaves you with some stray bookshelves, consider installing them in your garden shed. They're excellent places for storing all sorts of items from boxes or fertilizer to a few gardening books and magazines. Placing one of them as high as possible helps keep dangerous garden chemicals, such as weed killer, out of the reach of curious young minds and hands. 

You'd be surprised at how many ordinary household items can be repurposed for storage in your garden shed. Perhaps the best thing about it is that the creative aspect makes it a fun adventure rather than just another home maintenance chore.

Whatever your priorities are, before you take on the purchase of a home, answer these questions for yourself:

  • Why do you want to purchase a house? Is it for financial reasons? Is it less expensive than paying rent? Until you’re certain about your reasons for buying, take it slow and make a plan. It’s your money, your time and your effort that goes into maintaining a home. Buying for the wrong reasons leads to buyers’ remorse and dissatisfaction.
  • Where do you want to own a home? Is extra land important to you? Or, do you want to be near other family members? Farther away? Can your lifestyle support the commute? Buying a house that requires an extensive commute changes your life in ways you may not foresee. Moving away from friends, entertainment and shopping areas you enjoy can tarnish the pleasure of a new home. Pick your location based on what you want most, even if it means a smaller house or less land.
  • What type of home do you want? Do you prefer a maintenance-free condominium with a view? A single-family home in an HOA-controlled neighborhood? A townhouse with an attached garage and street-level entry? Be clear about what living style suits you. If hearing the neighbor’s alarm clock raises your stress level, a flat-style condominium or attached townhome might not be the best option for you. A duplex with only adjoined garages could fit the bill nicely though. Let your agent know which things are deal-breakers and which are merely preferences.

Once you decide, with absolute certainty, what you want, you can set about finding just the right home in the best location at the correct time and for the optimal price. When it’s right, you’ll know it. Start by finding the right agent. Reach out today for a consultation.

A yard sale offers a valuable opportunity to get rid of items before you sell your house. As such, it is important to promote your yard sale effectively; otherwise, you may miss out on a chance to declutter and earn extra cash at the same time.

Ultimately, there are many quick, easy ways to stir up interest in your yard sale, such as:

1. Post flyers in your city or town

Old-fashioned flyers can help you promote your yard sale to large groups of people in your city or town. That way, you can create a buzz around your event and increase the likelihood of selling your stuff.

If you use flyers to promote your yard sale, be sure to include essential information like the location, date and time of your event. Also, using bright, vibrant paper and colorful markers may help your flyers stand out.

Ensure that all of your yard sale flyers are legible, accurate and easy to understand. This will help minimize the risk of miscommunication with potential event attendees.

Of course, it never hurts to ask business owners for permission to post flyers at local companies, either. The more flyers that you post, the more likely it becomes that your yard sale will be a resounding success.

2. Create an online posting

An online posting makes it simple for you to provide details about your yard sale to large groups of people.

Putting an online posting on Craigslist or local community websites may prove to be worthwhile. And in some instances, you may even be able to include photos of items that you plan to sell at your yard sale.

In addition, invite friends on Facebook and other social networks to attend your upcoming yard sale. By doing so, you can boost your chances of stirring up substantial interest in the days leading up to your event.

3. Select the right date and time

Oftentimes, Saturdays and Sundays are the best days to host a yard sale, and for good reason. Many people don't have to work on weekends, and as a result, may have free time to attend your yard sale.

After you know which day of the week that you want to host your yard sale, consider the date and time of your event closely.

Take a look at the holiday calendar, and you should have no trouble selecting a yard sale date that works well for most people in your area.

Think about the time of your yard sale too. And remember, if you host a yard sale that coincides with local community events, it may be difficult for some people to attend.

Lastly, if you need extra help stirring up interest in your yard sale, don't hesitate to reach out to your real estate agent. This housing market professional may be able to share details about your upcoming yard sale with clients and colleagues.

Generating buzz in a yard sale can be easy, and with the aforementioned tips, you can stir up plenty of interest in your event.
