Is it just me, or were there at least 150 garage sales this weekend?

That might be an exaggeration. But the number of garage sales I saw on just one street (5) was a little bit alarming.

Since I've never had a garage sale, I wasn't sure why so many were popping up. Is it because of the weather? Is it to make some Christmas money? Are people doing their spring cleaning in the fall?

I decided to ask around and see what answers I could get.

The most common answer was the weather. October is the last chance before the winter to set your old stuff on the driveway and make an extra $100.

It makes sense because everyone knows that Amarillo's best weather happens between the end of September and the middle of October. (Yes, that's right, we only have great weather for about three weeks of the year.)

If you're in the market for a good deal, just drive down the street - you're sure to find a garage sale!
