Garage Sale Shopping!

Navigating through a yard sale can seem overwhelming. With so much stuff, how do you know what's a keeper and what you should walk away from? Yard sale junkie Stephanie Dulli has the inside scoop on how to get the best deal at a garage sale and what items you should keep a look out for.

Do you shop at garage sales? If so, what are some of your tips for getting the best deals?

I love shopping at garage sales!  I try to hit them frequently, but certainly don't get to as many as I'd like.  I always check Craigslist for the neighborhood sales- those are the best!  I love that I can park my car and walk from sale to sale.  I also never ever offere full price (unless the item is already marked super cheap).  I rarely ever pay what the marked price is.

I love yard sales!   The only thing is that I find myself losing track of time and spending the entire day!

I find garage sales too time consuming and more often than not, a hit or miss.  Craigslist is more efficient.
