 me and my mom are having a joint yard sale saturday and im having a tough time knowing what to price my items...ive got like 4 garbage bags full of clothes mostly 0-3 mths-4t...should i price them all 0.50 each piece or 1.00 each piece? some are really nice none stained or anything but would you pay 1.00 each piece at a yard sale?

I did all my dd's baby clothes 50c a piece and made a KILLIN'!  The lower the price, the more you sell...Make sure you separate them...I did 0-3 mth, 3-6 mth, 6-9 mth, etc.  My first sale w/ baby clothes didn't do so well cuz I just had them laid out and in the box.  The next one I separated and they sold like hotcakes.

Well since you have a lot, maybe you can price them 50 cents per item or like $5.00 for a bag of clothes

 if it's an outfit..like 2-3 pieces..mark them at $2.00...everything else, assuming it's in pretty good condition..do at 50 cents each..you shoudln't have any problems selling everything

 Nope. I pay $0.25-0.50 for indivdual things like shirts, onesies, shorts etc. Jeans, $2 tops. I would not pay $1 a piece. Doesn't matter how nice, unstained, cute or name brand they are. It's a yard sale. Outfits that have matching tops/bottoms I can see asking $1-$2 for but no way for things like shirts and onesies as I said.

some should be priced separately the rest make a pile and set a price of 5.00 fill a bag or something like that depending on how many cloths you have. there or some really good sites on how to run a productive yard sale.
