Website of the Day: Garage Sale Finder

If you're a garage sale junkie (no pun intended), there's a site called gsalr that provides a list of garage sales, local estate sales, and multi-family yard sales in cities across the U.S. Each garage sale is located on a map and described, so you'll know exactly what's for sale and where it is — kinda like a local classified ad, but much better! There is also a trip planner so you can build a list of garage sales you would like to visit, and then plan your route for getting to them.To learn how to post your favorite sites to the Website of the Day group, just

I use to spend hours searching on-line classified adds for garage sales in my area. I would then plot them out on Google Maps and manually develop a "trip plan" so I could hit as many as possible without wasting too much gas. This site does all of this with just a click of the mouse. This is a MUST for anyone who even rarely goes to garage sales. It's a HUGH time saver!

I love this! I grew up with a mother who was a HUGE yard sale junkie and she passed it on to me. I will be using this!

Handy if you need vintage things to redecorate something in your home or office, and dob't want to hunt for the items.

very cool. the estate sales would be great, especially. i don't drive around or walk around neighbourhoods much so never find out about garage sales. incidentally, i need to get things listed myself for a "leaving the country and never coming back sale" in the next 2 months.

I think this is great. I used to go to lots of garage sales, but I stopped because they are so hard to track down and map when you live in a city.
