Garage-sale economy

by frugalista on October 27, 2008

The New York Times wrote about the garage-sale economy growing in America. With so many people losing their jobs and homes, people are constantly having garage sales. I’ve been to  a few garage sales, but I need to do more purging of my clothes. Before the end of the year, I need to make a drop at the Salvation Army or Goodwill. You get a tax write off for your donations and get rid of clutter! :)

I live in small quarters so I don’t have space for more goods in my home. You can get good deals at garage sales, but you are still spending money. I’m kind of on an anti-spending rampage now. However, I don’t have any plans to do urban foraging, either. I’m all about the purge. I have never thrown my own garage sale. My apartment doesn’t have a garage! :)

Are you noticing more garage sales in your neighborhoods? Have you gotten any good buys? Are you throwing a garage sale?
