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.

Life Jackets: An Essential Part of Paddlesports
Here in the water sports department we often get asked, Do I need to wear a life jacket when I kayak... even in flat water? It is a good question, and it has a really important answer - YES.

You never know what could happen out there and it is always best to be prepared. Even good swimmers should wear ...
