Tips for the World's Longest Yard Sale and National Garage Sale Day

If you're a yard sale/garage sale/flea market enthusiast, this is probably your favorite month of the year.  After all, the World's Longest Yard Sale is August 5-8 and just a few days later on August 14 you can celebrate National Garage Sale Day!  (Yes, you read that right.  There is actually an official World's Longest Yard Sale!  Over 675 miles of sales stretching from Michigan to Alabama along US Highway 127.) 

If you're thinking about participating in one of these events, or just hosting your own sale sometime soon, here's a quick video for you to watch with some on how to turn your clutter into cash.  Also, be sure to check out the articles from Lifetime's Tips & Solutions page on our website for some helpful garage sale/yard sale pointers.  You'll find information about how to best display your items, organization, printable price tags, signage, and more.

What I do for a living- First and foremost, I'm a doting mommy of a second grader and a 4-year-old, and a proud wife of a USAF F-16 fighter pilot!  In my pre-children life, I was the Communications Manager for Lifetime Products.  But, once you're a Lifetime fan, you're hooked!  So, after a few years of hiatus, I'm now a WAHM and am happily back on board at Lifetime as a freelance PR Consultant.  In addition to blogging for Lifetime, you can follow and chat with me on Lifetime's Twitter account @Lifetime365 and on the Lifetime Products Facebook page!

Topics I blog about- How I use Lifetime products in my everyday life at home, for kids parties and community activities, as well as inspiring stories... and GIVEAWAYS!  :)

My favorite products from Lifetime- 4x2 Table, 30” Personal Table, Chair, Youth Kayak, and Wheelbarrow.  Although, our Shed and Yard Cart are pretty close favorites, too!
