    Hi All: Since the recession began, I have noticed prices in my thrift stores have increased quite dramatically. For example, a light weight spring coat that used to cost $7.99-9.99 is now selling for $14.99. These items are donated to these stores, so are free. I don't think that the...

    Okay, okay, I know it's still February, but I have the spring garage sale bug. I just wrote a blog post on how I'm thinking already about what it is that I'm looking for this year, and that is a record player and some records. Do you go garage saling with something in mind, or do you prefer...

    One the way home from running errands today we decided to stop off at a few yard/garage sales. I don't know when it started, but this year it seems to be people selling absolute junk for top dollar. Used men's watches @ $100/ea (the seller guaranteed them for a year but the seller was moving...

    I am having my garage sale and I was wondering how much cash on hand I should have? Also in what denominations...ie. how many $1, how many $5, how many $10, how many $20, penny, nickle, dime and quarter rolls. Thank you. Take care and God bless.

    How do you organize your garage or what ways would you like to organize it? Where do you put this and that? We're fortunate that our garage has a full wall of closets, a mini loft, peg boards and a work table. But we have to still go through it every year and re-organize everything because we...

    First a disclaimer: Hubby and I usually get along fantastically. After all these years, we just know how to make it work. But..... We need you all to weigh in on this question: Do you clean your garage? I maintain that a garage should be clean: floor swept, cobwebs down, things dusted...
