New Jersey Garage and Yard Sales Are Back
The COVID-19 pandemic has given us more than enough time for an extended spring cleaning. Cleaning and organizing has also helped many in dealing with the anxiety and stress caused by the virus.
Luckily for me, my two boys have been on a mission to clean out and organize our cluttered and cramped garage. It was so good to hear Governor Murphy give the go-ahead to once again having yard and garage sales in the Garden State.
According to NJ.com, the restrictions for having a garage or yard sale are adhering to the indoor gathering requirements. Towns can also impose additional restrictions.
We now have piles of accumulated stuff, thanks to our spring cleaning effort. We now ready to have our first yard sale of the 2020 season!
Here are some tips for you to have a supper successful yard sale this summer from the website Money Talks News.

Collect Your Items on a Yearly Basis- Put things you don't want or use aside so this way you'll have items ready to go.
Make Sure You Know Your Town's Rules- Do you need a permit?
