I’m Lovin’ It – Garage Sale Tracker {There’s an App for that!}

Welcome to the Party!!
*********************

You know summertime is officially here when garage sale start.

In the past you had to keep your eyes and ears open to find out where the garage and yard sales were. Scour the classifieds of the local newspaper, drive around looking for signs, look at fliers in a grocery store and search classified ads on local community website. Then you did best if you had a local street map so you could plan the best route to save time and gas.

Well, a TidyMom sponsor, GarageSalesTracker.com has made ALL of that SO much easier!
They have asked me to tell you about their FREE Garage Sale Tracker app for the iPhone !

If you’re not familiar with Garage Sales Tracker, you go to their site, stick in your zip code and it pulls up any garage sales listed in your area (flea markets and consignment shops too). Plus driving directions! So much better than wasting your morning driving around neighborhoods, trying to follow a bunch of poster board signs or your street guide.

If you are having your own yard sale or garage sale make sure you list it on Garage Sales Tracker so that everyone can find your sale!

Now, not only is GarageSalesTracker.com a GREAT idea, they’ve taken it one step further with the official iPhone app!–

What exactly does the Garage Sales Tracker app do?

Here are just some of the features:

  1. My Location – Using the my location button you can use the phone’s GPS feature to identify the zip code for your current location. This is especially useful if you’re driving around neighborhoods and want to see what sale are available in your area.
  2. Daily planner – We’ve add a new feature to the phone not yet available on our website that allows you to bookmark listings and plan your garage sale day.
  3. Contact seller – Want to contact a seller. Our application allows you to call the seller from the application.
