It seems like a lot of people move over the summer, which means, most weekends, you can find a yard or garage sale going on. If you’re not into thrifty shopping, you might drive by these sales without a second glance, but you can often find some great deals if you’re willing to look.
Ready to get started? Make sure you have cash on hand–sometimes, you can use cards, but you can often get a better deal if you bring cash with you.
Some of things, like large pieces of furniture or books, might seem like obvious yard sale purchases, but there are some unexpected and fun things you should be on the lookout for, as well!
Garage sales can have all sorts of random things for sale, but be sure you steer clear of some items—sometimes, what seems like a great deal is just a waste of your money. No one wants to wear someone’s old shoes or swimsuit, do they?
Estate sales might be harder to come by, but, if you do stumble upon one, they have just as thrifty and fulfilling finds as yard sales have.
