We’re Thinking Spring to Save Money & Make Money

We were inspired by a recent post we came across by Gayle Lynn Falkenthal on – and it’s got us thinking about Spring Shopping and Spring Cleaning!

The article in’s post is all about San Diego’s biggest garage sale, the annual Thursday Club Rummage Sale, which has been going on for over 85 consecutive years. You know if this has been going on for that long, they must be on to something big!  In fact, it’s so big, that the folks at SanDigeoBargainmama have provided a cool post giving insider pointers to save you time shopping and receive the best deals. These tips are great for shopping any tag sale

No matter what the season, shopping previously-owned is a sure way to find quality items, do the environment a favor, and also save some money – an all around win, win, win. And here’s another win: Spring Cleaning!  Really, is there ever a wrong time to clean up, clear out, and cash in?

There’s money in your closets, drawers, garage, attic, and storage units! Take what you aren’t using and recycle it; have a yard or tag sale, list it on, sell it on line, put it on consignment in a boutique selling previously-owned, or donate it — all easy ways to turn something you’re not using into something wonderful for someone else, and your wallet… definitely a win!
