    Thanks so much for posting this! Garage sales is how I furnish my home, and dress my family! Plus, buy Christmas and birthday presents for my daughter! I can't wait!

    Angela – I'm hoping to get more into garage sales this spring, too. I buy a lot of my children's clothes at Target on clearance, but I know I can still save a lot more by buying at garage sales.
