  • I always mark everything in increments of 25 cents, and even dollars. 10 dollars in quarters, 20 in ones, 40 in fives (it sounds like a lot but its only 8 bills)

  • I am sitting here running my uncle's garage sale right now. I really depends on how big it is. But for the most part, at least $10 in $1s, $20-$30 in $5s, a roll each of quarters nickels and dimes.

  • I 'd geta role of each, pennies, nickels, dimes, and probably 2 of quarters. Then I know its alot but at least 4-5 of each bill - 1, 5, 10, 20.

  • I like to go yard saling with $1 bills and quarters, but some people bring 20s and 10s though.

    You should maybe keep $20 in change. YOU DON'T NEED PENNIES, NICKELS, AND DIMES FOR A YARD SALE unless you charge tax LMAO. Your prices should all be rounded to $.25, $.50, even figures like that. When I had my yard sale, I had $3 in quarters and 5 $1 bills. I was fine. But my yard sale was slow.

  • We did a dime box, so we had to get dimes and nickels too. We did $10 in singles, 2 rolls of quarters, one roll of each dimes and nickels, and $30 in 5. I never got tens or pennies.
