Are you ready to do some spring cleaning? It's that time of year when yard sales are abundant. Kids are out of school, days are long, and yard sales are a great way to make some extra money, get rid of stuff in your house, and have some fun with your neighbors. Technology makes it easier to spread the word about your yard sale and we all know that advertising is key. Before the actual yard sale day, here are some websites you can use to advertise: weekendtreasure.com, yardsalesearch.com, garagesalehunter.com, craigslist.com, and of course facebook.com. You can even create a facebook event for the yard sale, with pictures of some of the bigger items. After advertising online spend some time making bright, big, clearly stated signs to direct people to your location. You can also post signs or flyers at your local grocery store, gas station, or coffee shop. Many coffee shops have bulletin boards or designated spaces for local flyers and events. If you really want to use technology to your advantage, check out Yard Sale Treasure Map on iTunes, Garage Sale Rover for the Android, and there are even apps that will help you track money on your ipad or tablet.
