August is a popular time to hold garage sales. School is starting soon, so it’s a good time to get everyone to go through their clothes, supplies and toys to prepare for the new term.
This Saturday is National Garage Sale Day, which gives me the opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of having a garage sale/yard sale/tag sale. I last offered my opinion about garage sales here and it hasn’t changed since then.
If you want to participate in a community yard sale, talk to your neighbors about setting one up. In the meantime, start gathering the stuff you know you want to let go. It all will be in one place, ready for your yard sale; and if you decide not to have one, it will be ready to donate.
How do you feel about yard sales?
