We got up very early yesterday morning to check out an annual garage sale event only a couple of blocks away. The proceeds from this garage sales go to non-profits. This event runs the entire street for at least 5 blocks.! We got a couple of plants, a glass jar and some tools and spent about $10. Garage sales are great ways to get stuff you need at a very reasonable price.
Street garage sales are great because it gets buyers out all at once, meaning less traffic and gas spent than if separate sales were done. Items that are bought are also recycled. If your street is having a sale but you don’t want to or can’t participate consider contacting a local charity who may wish to use your driveway and the free advertising to sell some items and raise funds for their cause.
