4. Plan a Block Party or Group Yard Sale

Sometimes there really is power in numbers. Case in point: You can boost the selling power of your yard sale or the fun factor of a summer cookout by including all the houses on your block.

For a block party, that prep might include applying for a permit to close off the street and deciding who will provide what; for a yard sale, you’ll need to make posters and place ads.
