Yard sales are a late summer phenomena that brings sleepy treasure seekers out before daylight on Saturdays. You’ll find them in nearly every neighborhood, often held by two or more families or even whole subdivisions selling together. The more families participating, the greater the selection and size range are likely to be. It’s often possible to find amazingly low prices on name brand and designer apparel, accessories, shoes and handbags. Most people shop for their own use, but others have become pros, shopping for resale at local consignment stores and online consignment sites. It’s always a good idea to plan your route before you leave home, choosing the sales you most want to visit in a particular neighborhood.

Take a fanny pack or crossbody bag to keep both your hands free and your money safe. Share the ride whenever possible since parking space is often limited in neighborhoods. Always bring a tape measure to check waist sizes, sleeve and inseam lengths. Bring your own large totes or shopping bags, since they may not be available. Wear comfortable shoes and enjoy the blissfully cooler weather.
As always, maximize your style and minimize your spending~
