I had the privilege of doing a Skype interview with Leigh Ann Towne from FOX 17 recently on yard sale tips and tricks. She put together a great article and fun video on the subject that anyone who loves yard sales will want to check out.
Here’s a snippet from her article:
“What is a typical day off for me? Getting up dark and early, even though I don’t have to, hopping on www.garagesalefinder.com or Craigslistto see where I will find the treasures of the day. The thrill of the hunt is probably similar to what many sports fanatics feel on game day. (I too love sports, but not as much as thrifting).
Here’s a helpful hint, too. Before you head out for the day, download a garage sale finding app on your phone. One of my favorites is called “Garage Sales, Everywhere!” Just type in the keywords “garage sale finder” and several pop up. They can pinpoint your location and then show little flags on a map with the ones nearest to you. Pretty cool! The app works best when you have a co-pilot, so one can look and direct, while the other drives. My husband and I had so much fun going on a spur of the moment adventure with the app one day.
Before heading out recently on a Friday, I spoke via Skype with blogger Crystal Paine of Money Saving Mom. I was really intrigued with one of her entries called 10 Secrets to Holding a Successful Garage Sale…”
