DON’T SWEAT THE PRICE STICK­ERS

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - YOUR HOME -

If the thought of putting a lit­tle price sticker on each and every thing you want to sell sounds ex­haust­ing, ‘save your­self gobs of time and skip it’, says Ham­mond. In­stead, ask peo­ple how much they’d like to pay. (A good rule of thumb for what you might get for most items: 10% to 20% of what you paid.) That short cut could pre­vent you from un­der­pric­ing items. ‘You want to get rid of that blouse or that book, so you might mark it at R20, while a buyer who wants it would be will­ing to pay R50,’ she says.
