Yard sales are as common in Los Angeles as traffic, but what if your junk could change lives? We know you have all kinds of unused items like couches, lawn mowers and clothing that would sell great at a garage sale, so why not make it a fundraiser, this weekend? To make your Habitat garage sale a real success let everyone know that all the money you make (or a portion) will go toward helping Habitat for Humanity build more homes in Greater Los Angeles. By supporting your community and letting potential buyers know it, you could draw in more customers and avoid haggling!

Clean out your closets, basements and garages, get out there and enjoy a warm day while you make a difference. Heck, engage the kids by adding a lemonade stand and really make some money! Just the very sight of your efforts may also encourage a neighbor to think differently about their junk.

Be sure to advertise on Craigslist or in local newspapers and remember that yard sale shoppers start early - usually by 7 am. People also like to read the classifieds to find out what types of items will be available at different sales, so be sure to mention your Habitat tie-in.

You will helping a some great families in your community so get out there and sell! We guarantee you'll experience the warm feelings that come along with helping those in need. Who knows, you may start having yard sales once a month!
