I couldn’t call myself the Northern Cheapskate and not love a good garage sale. Garage sales are fabulous ways to find some great bargains and keep perfectly good stuff from being dumped in a landfill.
Garage sales have allowed me to find quality clothing and toys for my kids. I’ve found some great kitchen tools and dishes. I’ve scored some nice bookcases and chairs. Garage sales have helped me save a lot of money over the years. And as I’ve held my own garage sales with family and friends, they’ve helped me make money and reduce my own clutter.
My affinity for a good garage sale is what prompted me to share In Praise of Garage Sales with you today. I hope you enjoy learning a few fun facts about this money-saving and money-making event.
Are you a garage sale shopper? What have been some of your great finds?
