Using a Smartphone When You're Yardsaling

I love to go to yard sales. Last year, I started using the map function in my phone to help find sales. I'm wondering if there are any apps that people are using on their smartphones to make it easier to go to yard sales? Or websites that could help?

Take Your Search Farther

I use a website called Yard Sale Search to find more sales than what shows up in my local paper. I've also viewed estate sales at The Estate Sale Network. A lot of the estate sales have photos to give you a better idea of whether it's worth your time and gas to make the trip. The best thing about both sites is that they can be used for the entire United States.

Find It on the List

The best and most detailed and informative site to use for finding local garage sales and flea markets is Craigslist and it can also be downloaded through your app store.

Check sale prices for green cleaning solutions.

Two Favorite Resources

I use Yard Sale Treasure Map and Both are good and free.
