    From Lawyer to Garage Sale Guru...at which did Lisa Payne make $100 a minute?

    Grab your wallets!   More than 60 million Americans will have a garage sale or frantically race to get to one this season. 

    Will their hunt for treasure begin and end at your house?  Want to be sure of it? 

    Garage sale guru, Lisa Payne, who has attended more than 10,000 garage sales (and still counting), will show you how to turn junk into jackpot, trash into treasure and clutter into tax-free cash.

    Spring cleaning has never been more profitable!  Payne’s comical stories and effective tips offer a must-have guide to big cash, garage sale success!

    Lisa helped the Kansas City Chiefs raise $24,000 in just 4 hours! 

    Payne reveals:

    1. Easy ways to double, even triple, your garage sale profits.  Many sellers make $1,000 in one weekend.
    2. How to avoid the most common blunders almost all sellers make
    3. Why most sellers work too hard for too little money- are you aiming for a trip to DisneyWorld or your local fast food joint?
    4. A to Z Secrets that pay off in big bucks (from advertising to bargaining to zeroing in on your goal)



    Lisa Payne is the author of “Once Upon A GarageSale…From Fairy Tale to Reality: How to Make More Money, Get Rid of More Stuff and Otherwise Succeed at your Garage Sale.”  A non- practicing attorney, licensed in New York and Ohio (inactive), Lisa is a true garage sale guru who thrives on the fun and sport of a garage sale, not to mention its profit.  She uses her background and experience to conduct workshops, speak to groups and consult with organizations on running successful garage sales.  She has appeared on CBS News Up to the Minute and hundreds of radio programs, coast to coast and in Canada.  A former columnist for Mother and Child Reunion magazine, Lisa has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens’ Family Money, the Kansas City Star, and many other publications.  When not chasing down a bargain, Lisa is found writing, and not just about her passion.  She “ghost writes” for many diverse clients in a variety of contexts, from the traditional (technical articles, press releases, marketing copy, bios, websites) to the whimsical (poems, acrostics, party invitations).
