Idea number one: get prepared for garage and yard sale season by cleaning out your car, throwing in plenty of rope, blankets and bungee cords (so you can transport all of your favorite
finds). If you're like me and don't have the time to leisurely attend every garage sale, just stop by on the way home from that soccer game (or go
early). I prefer to go late because that's where the bargains are found. People usually don't want to pack up their things and will get rid of it for a song at the end of the day. Yes, you do miss some stuff, but I find it worth it!
