i love yard sales

One of the things I love to do on weekends is to drive around looking for yard sales. I get a kick out of finding what I call treasures from rummaging through another person's belongings. The fact that most of this items are very cheap is an attraction by itself. Especially for people like me who loves a bargain. I share this interest with my sisters-in-law and mother-in-law. They have told me often enough that if we only live near them I could go with them on weekends and spend it yard saling as what they call it. It is fun and you will never know what you will find on yard sales. The only downside to this is that sometimes you could be driving for miles and not see a sign which is a total waste of time since most yard sales or garage sales are conducted in the mornings until early afternoon. And if you are late you will only get whatever the other yard-salers did not like. Plus gas is getting expensive nowadays and driving around the neighborhood is no longer a luxury. So instead of driving around looking for yard sales it would be convenient to know where there is one, right? Which is why you should check out Garage Sales Tracker if you want to know ahead of time where a probable yard sale is at. All you have to do is key in your zip code and decide how far you are willing to go to find a yard sale and a list will appear. For added convenience to the buyer the site features driving directions, items for sale (so you will know what to expect), and you can even contact the seller in case you have questions. You can even find coupons in the GST site which I have already browsed over earlier in hopes of finding coupons for the items we need from the store. Coupons are a big help nowadays.

A word of advice, go early if you want to get the good deals. I have been late many times and I did not get anything good out of it quite literally and figuratively.
