Tomorrow is the official garage sale day for everyone in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Hosted by “Sustainable Capitol Hill” and “Unpaving Paradise” two great organizations working hard to bring more parks to the neighborhood and educate the community about sustainability. The event is a great way to reuse and recycle items that you might otherwise send to the landfill. There are over 44 independent garage sales registered on the website, being held at homes or apartment buildings throughout the neighborhood, as well as 32 sales registered to use the community space offered by the organizers to people who would not otherwise have a way to sell their stuff, located on the corner of Pine and Belmont. Even if you only have a couple items, it might be worth it for you to haul them out the sidewalk. There will be so many people out your bound to make a few bucks.  In this economy, who couldn’t use some extra cash!  Alternatively, you might be able to find something you really, for a great deal, that you otherwise could not afford. I’m headed down to my storage space right now to get the baby blue dresser I’ve been storing for the last three years for no particular reason. I could get 40 bucks and you could get the perfect addition to your bedroom set. Sounds like a great deal!

make some cash!
