The season of spring cleaning is upon us! Would you like to bring the entire town to your garage sale? Okay, maybe not the ENTIRE town, but you’d like to bring a good number of people so sell most of your stuff at your garage sale. Well, have no worries because we are here to help! Below will be a few helpful tips to make your garage sale advertisement stand out and be the most informative one on the page.
Here are 5 tips and tricks of the Garage Sale classified:
1) Have a catchy title to your ad like “Christmas Blowout Sale!” or “Prices Not Found in Stores!” ; You want to catch people’s attention right away so they will look further into your ad, so get creative!
2) In the first line or two of your description try to include the dates, times and location of your garage sale so it will show up in the preview, also so shoppers can plan accordingly.
3) Try to add photos of some of the big ticket items that will be available for purchase at your garage sale.
4) Also include where to park if you have a specific area, or if you live in a regulated neighborhood let people know anything they may need to know.
5) Being descriptive is a must! Not only with your items for sale but also WHEN and WHERE the sale is.
We hope this list will help you when creating your advertisement. Thank you for using Ocala4sale!

It’s the day after Thanksgiving and you’re already in the Christmas spirit. You’ve got your lights, stocking, and wreath hung, now all you need is your Christmas tree. Whether you go to the tree farm to pick out the perfect tree, or you purchase an artificial tree, it has to be the perfect one. Here at USA4SALE, we’re here to help!
Step 1: Measure, measure, measure! Pick an area in your home where you would like your Christmas tree to go, then measure from the floor to the ceiling ( remember to subtract the length of your tree stand and tree topper ). Do not forget to think of the girth of your tree so none of its branches will be squished up against the wall. Also, remember the thickness of the trunk so it will fit in your tree stand. Measure at least twice and DO NOT FORGET to write your measurements down.
Step 2: Shop local. Shopping local not only helps out the small family businesses in your community, but it helps you save gas and helps the tree retain most of its needles from not having to be tied down so long. We have some tree farmers listed on Ocala4Sale.
Step 3: Get a live tree, like obviously you’re at a tree farm so all the trees are alive, but get one that does not have a lot of decay on the inside, even though it might be built perfectly. When picking the right tree, you must test its branches, crush the needles, bounce the tree, and check the size of the trunk. To test the branches, grab any branch on the tree between your thumb and forefinger, gently clamp down and pull towards yourself. If you end up with a handful of needles, the tree is already past its prime.Crushing the needles allows you to smell the scent of the tree, and if it doesn’t smell nice do not get it. To bounce the tree, hold it a few inches above the ground and drop it. If the exterior needles fall off, it’s sure sign of a bad apple. Needles that fall off from the interior of the tree are normal. DO NOT trim your trunk to fit your stand, because when you trim it strips the tree of its cambium layer, which absorbs water to keep your tree healthy.
Step 4: Get your tree wrapped in netting for a safe ride home.
Step 5: When you’re ready to put your tree on the stand, cut at least an inch off. You can have the lot do it before you leave if you’re headed for home, but you should wait if you’re going to be out more than four hours. Otherwise, the end will glaze over with new pitch, and the tree won’t take up water.
Step 6: Now that your tree is put up you must water it, watering it vigorously in the first few days is crucial because the tree will take in a few gallons during that time. Do not forget to put down a newspaper or towel to catch any spilled water.
Step 7: Decorate your tree safely.
