garage sales

Garage Sale-ing is one of those scrumptious-in-theory past times I have yet to fully embrace in my adulthood. I remember tagging along with my mom when I was a kid, and her being a total pro at scouting out the best finds and making great deals. Growing up, much of our home was furnished with cool garage sale finds. And for a long time, I've wanted to make it a part of my Saturday morning spring thru autumn routine. Mostly because it's one of the only venues were you can find furniture items not made of particle board or veneer, but still in my price range.

Which leads me to announce with excitement, my recent discovery of a cool new tool to help in all of our greatest garge sale scouting aspirations: Yard Sale Treasure Map. It finds garage sales in your area and you can add any others you find through your local classifieds or craigslist. Then it maps out your day for you. Click print, grab the keys and you're on your way to finding treasure.
