I went to garage sales a lot when our kids were little. We have a huge enclosed porch so I turned it into a playground for the kids from things I got really cheap at garage sales. I don't go to them any more because I always buy stuff that I don't need just because the price is good. I do shop at a lot of thrift stores for my clothes now though.

I have just done enough of my own garage sales to know that I do not like them, lol! Always drove me crazy to have some want to barter a quarter item down to a dime. If I have a item that I can get a fair amount of money for, I put an ad online. Everything else goes to thrift stores or a spouse abuse center.

When I was in my 20s, I liked to have yard sales. It is so much work, my DH and I don't like to do it. He doesn't like to go to Garage Sales or Yard Sales. I would like to do it. I may do some this year?

I can't golf. It's a mind game and all I can think of is what a waste the walk is spoiled by a club chasing a ball around.

We have golf clubs, that no one wants any more, around here a lot. We collect them and give them to the schools all over the county. The kids can't afford to buy the clubs so they get them through our charity. We have put several kids on the links with those golf clubs. The kids are so thankful to get them, too.

I no longer garage sale. I haven't for years. I have enough junk without buying someone else's junk. Last month we had a large garage sale here and I made Bob be sales person while I stayed in and did my thing or errands for him. He made quite a haul but the weired thing about it was that after it was all over, and hardly anything was left, we looked around and thought, "Why did we put that in the sale?" several times. I could have gotten rid of a bunch more stuff. So next March, I'm going to put some things out front, then put a sign that says something about come in and make bids on anything in the house you want. Maybe I'll sell enough junk to buy an RV and sell this place, too!

Have a great one!

I used to garage sale but now I have plenty of stuff. When I go through my stuff to look for things to give to Goodwill I usually want to keep my stuff. I do give clothes though.

I got a set of golf clubs for $5 at a garage sale and every time we go golf my husband says that it wasn't so cheap after all.

I used to when I was younger. I used to look them up in the newspaper. Me and my friend did it every weekend. It was a lot of fun and I furnished my apartment very cheap.

Do you ever have yard sales or go to yard sales?
