I love yard sales. The key to locating a great sale is time. One needs the time to check out as many sales as possible until you find a good one.

 

Aaron LaPedis, author of "The Garage Sale Millionaire," has hosted some 50 garage sales of his own and frequents them in search of artwork and antiques. Done right, a garage sale not only can generate some cash but also land you a tax deduction.
