Go Green Tip #5

The fifth and final Go Green Tip!

5) Yard sales! You've got all sorts of greenery going on here - you save money, reuse items so less factory gunk, cheap entertainment, build relationships with vendors, hone your bargaining skills and plus it's just plain ol' fun! If you hold your own, you will also be able to clear out clutter from your home and make a little extra cash.

Here's an example: Buying a new snowsuit will cost you over $50 (for kids). At a yard sale, you could easily save 90% of that!

Of course, it takes more time than going to Walmart, and there are no guarantees. However, what were you going to do on Saturday morning anyway? Watch SpongeBob? I rest my case.
