I love to find a good deal and garage sales are where those deals can be found! It is amazing to see the things people no longer need and are getting rid of. The items for sale range from “I can’t believe they are giving this away!” to the absolutely absurd items you have no idea why someone had that in the first place. And the prices? You just can’t find a deal like that anywhere else. Then, add in the fun of bartering and you have the best morning!

Garage Sale Date Task List
Before your date, you might want to do a little research to find the garage sales you want to hit up. You can check places like Craigslist.com or your local newspaper and then use this printable organizer to keep track of the locations.

Garage Sale Date Task List

Now for the fun part! Once you set off on your garage sale spree, you and your spouse each get a scavenger hunt list. Your goal? Find as many items on the list and mark them off. You don’t actually have to buy the items (unless you want to!) but make sure to show your findings to your spouse! The person who finds the most items at each stop wins!

To make this Garage Sale Date all come together, be sure to grab a great quality paper cutter and nice cardstock.
