Before our last move we had a garage sale -- in February. We advertised on Craig'sList and lots of people came because of the list -- and pictures. We included prices for our bigger ticket items so people would have an idea.

Earlier this year, I had an "Everything's $1" yard sale and had only 2-3 items that were more than $1. (vacuum, desk, stroller) Hardly anyone negotiated because the prices were already so low, even though I think I got more money than I normally would have for some items.
Recently at my mom's yard sale, we had a 2/$1 table, a $1 table, a $5 table and a $5+ table. She had so much stuff, it was really too much to tag, so that made it simple.
And I agree - Craigslist is a MUST!!!

my friend and i put on a HUGE garage sale about a month or two ago. i did a blog post with some "tips" following our sale:
there were 10 of us involved in the sale. my friend and i made about $1600 ($900 for me and $700 for her). the total of the 2-day sale was $2500.

All in a week! Superhuman effort.
Putting an ad in Craigslist is must because it's free and you can include photos. As a bonus, other garage sale sites like http://garagesalefinder.com/ use info from Craiglist to mark on their maps and route makers. As a shopper, I love these.
As a seller I would also suggest checking http://www.bestgaragesaletips.com/ for heaps of free tips to make extra money rather than just clearing your unwanted stuff.
