Have enough change on hand

Have enough money to make proper change throughout the day. Thomas recommends having $75 in singles on hand.

Tolar says having too little cash in the till can sabotage yard sale success.

"If you don't have change, then the first person shows up with $50 and you're screwed for the rest of the day," Tolar says.

Put the money in a cash box you hide or in an apron you wear, Tolar says.

Offering snacks to customers -- donuts and coffee, bottled water and snacks for kids -- could help you make a little extra money, Thomas says.
