I remember when my mom organized our first garage sale back in the 60's when I was only ten years old. We lived on Miller Rd. here in Lansing and we basically sold all of our junk that we didn't want any longer, to strangers pulling into our driveway.

Can you imagine how I was feeling when my mom tried explaining this whole garage sale thing to me? All I could say to my mom at the time was, fine, but don't sell any of my stuff to anyone. (Lol)

If you're a huge garage sale fan, then you need to check out the 180 long Michigan garage sale this weekend.
