Why I ❤️ Garage Sales - Treasures and Teachable Moments

Tulips. Sunshine. Afternoons at the park. There are so many things to love about Spring. At the top of my list – the Garage Sale. I have a not-so-secret love of the Garage Sale. That’s why this year, I decided to organize a neighbourhood yard sale as our family volunteer initiative for last month’s National Volunteer Week. At-home volunteer projects can be the best way to introduce young kids to the idea of volunteering and giving back in their communities. The Garage Sale is a perfect vehicle for kids to get involved and learn lots of valuable lessons along the way.
