It's always great to get something for nothing. This applies equally to advertising your garage sale. A number of websites exist which offer free advertising exclusively for garage sales, and others that include a garage sale classification in their Buy and Sell website. At least the price is right.
However, will you get enough value out of your free ad? Will enough people see your ad on these sites? How many buyers are using these sites to find garage sales? A quick check of their current listings will give you an idea of the popularity of the site and this could indicate how many people look for garage sales on these sites.
But, when you consider our advice that the more ways you advertise your garage sale, the more people you could attract to your garage sale, then the answer would be, YES! Definitely advertise on the free sites, but make sure you also advertise on the popular sites as well. Online advertising is a cost effective way to advertise your garage sale for weeks in advance rather than just on the day. You also have a lot more space to explain what you've got for sale in great detail. If the buyers know what you've got, and have a bit more time to organise their day, they are more likely to come to your garage sale.
