Y’all know I love yard sales. But did you know there are phone apps to help you map out the sales in your area?

They have changed my life.

The one I use (Yard Sale Treasure Map) lifts the ads from craigslist and even allows you to sync your route. I use the app to make my list every Friday night because I know my city so well and the neighborhoods with the best bargains!

This is way better than the olden days where I scoured the newspaper classifieds and used that old fashioned thing called a map!

Why do I love yard sales so much? Because you never know what you might find that you didn’t know you needed!

  7. I like Mauve Melody! Thanks for the opportunity.

  8. Looks great! I love finding things at garage sales too. It’s always fun to say, ‘Hey look what I did with that piece I got for $4!”

    • Hi, Pamela. Even more than garage sales I love finding things on the street that others have thrown away and fixing them up for free! Sometimes folks don’t know what treasures they have! Thanks for visiting my blog!

  9. I love Behr! I was in a hurry and purchased another brand to paint a small ceiling (the store didn’t carry Behr)… never again! Nothing like Behr paint, I learned my lesson. Thanks for linking up to Home Matters Party, pinning! #HomeMattersParty http://cu-rio.net/home-matters-linky-party-57/
