Plan to start your tag sale route early in the morning before selections are picked over. Carry cash, preferably small bills; most people cannot accept credit cards, and many are reluctant to take personal checks. Take a fanny pack or crossbody bag to keep both your hands free and your money safe. Share the ride whenever possible since parking space is often limited in neighborhoods. Always bring a tape measure to check waist sizes, sleeve and inseam lengths. Bring your own large totes or shopping bags, since they may not be available. Wear comfortable shoes and take along extra bottled water or your favorite cold drinks.
As always, maximize your style and minimize your spending~
