Garage Sales Tracker.


So as I have come to find over the last year or so, you can often find things cheaper at garage sales or thrifty stores (GASP!), than on clearance. While I will always love my clearance deals, I have found that getting things through garage sales and thrift stores( though the items are slightly use) are much cheaper! I found a dish on clearance for $3 at Target to only see it in a garage sale for .25 cents a year later. So as you all know from my blog post, I have been leaning towards garage sells and thrifting for a while now!

So I was recently contacted to check out the website Garage Sales Tracker. This website was created to make thrifting and garage selling easy for you! It has a directory of tons of consignment stores and you can get driving directions to the stores all on this one website! They are about to start working with newspapers to have access to their garage sale listings, so those will be at your finger tips without having to buy your local paper. (if garage sales are the only reason you buy that days paper, then you will be saving money!). Also soon there will be an iPhone application to track these garage sales, which will allow for turn by turn directions. If you have a Iphone, how cool would that be?

They also have a coupon section (who doesn't love coupons?). Their coupon selection is pretty wide! There are coupons for Rite Aid(those would be really useful if you work the Rite Aid deals!). They also have grocery coupons, Midas coupons you can use for your oil changes, and even a Dip and Dots coupon (which I will be printing out to use!).

So go on over and check out Garage Sales Tracker ! I already have it bookmarked on my computer! I think it will be very beneficial to my thrifting, and garage selling!

*While this was a paid post, I strongly do believe that this website will be beneficial to me and my readers, otherwise I would not have posted about it!


  1. Very cool site! I went over and bookmarked it too :) Thanks for sharing.

  2. I don't think this site will be useful for scouting out garage sales as soon as they start charging to list them. If I was having a garage sale, I'd stick with Craigslist, since it's free. It does sound promising for other things, like finding thrift stores.

    Have you checked out I used it for a little bit, and thought its mapping utility was pretty cool.

  3. Thanks for sharing this... I will check it out! Have a blessed day!

  4. What a cool friend! I'm looking to score a bookcase right now that I can refinish. : )

  5. I don't think we got garage sales here, just fleamarkets from time to time and those are mostly full of junk.

  6. Neat idea for the company. Unfortunately, none in my area, but maybe as they grow, there will be some nearby! :-)

  7. This is wonderful!! Thank you so much for this great information!! I think it is such a great idea!!

  8. Thanks for passing this along. I have saved the link. I love checking out garage sales and flea markets during the fall and spring months. I'm sure this will come in handy.

  9. neat idea! Here I just mostly use kijiji.
