You Have 6 Weeks....

With the growing interest in recycling, reusing, and disciplined family spending, many residents are seeking events and opportunities that are good for the environment and affordable. The Des Plaines Annual Community Garage Sale falls under all of those categories.

Get all of your gently used items together and have a garage sale. The $6 fee for the permit is being waived for that weekend only, so you have nothing to lose (except your junk)! Look here for more information on this great event.

Don't have enough items to have a full sale? Gather a few friends or family members from other communities together and do a joint sale. Or, have a sale to benefit a local charity or organization. Do you know a Girl Scout Troop in the area? Suggest they have a garage sale to supplement their 'Cookie Money'.

To help you in your endeavor, we have a few book suggestions from the Adult Services collection to help:

Garage Sale Magic, by Michael Williams
Once Upon a Garage Sale - from fairy tale to reality, by Lisa Rogovin

Any way you look at it, this will be a great set of weekends, and definitely be sure to drive around looking for bargains!
