Online PR News – 18-June-2012 – New York – Old fashioned values and ideas are being revisited more and more. The methods used by our grandparents and their attitudes to reusing items would not be that different from the average, thrifty, environmentally-conscious American today.

Why pay full price for new items when barely or rarely used items are available every weekend for pennies, not dollars! With the Garage Sale Finder App, you don’t have to. Users can save money by shopping at garage and yard sales all across the country.

The popularity of TV shows such as ‘American Pickers’ proves that families are rediscovering the joy of ‘picking’ bargains and the thrill of finding treasures among the millions of items that change hands every weekend. Like any emerging activity, mobile technology is being employed to give the savvy bargain hunter the upper hand in finding new garage sale listings near them.

A new iPhone App called Garage Sale Finder has been released that will give both professional pickers or beginning garage sale shoppers the inside track to garage sale listings locally and further afield by implementing the iPhone’s GPS technology.Users can search a specified area and get details of all the garage sales that are happening in the next 7 days. There is nothing worse than finding out about a sale just after it has happened but this will never happen again with Garage Sale Finder.

The website - http://garagesalefinder.com/ - passed the one million mark for garage sale listings last summer, and has been gaining users (both buyers and sellers) on a steady basis. The app takes the information for the sales and sends it out to users with the iApp on their phone.

Garage Sale Finder is also the easiest and quickest way for sellers to attract more potential buyers to their garage sale, and for bargain hunters to have even more opportunities to find those precious and valuable hidden prizes!

The Garage Sale Finder website also has an interactive tips section where users can compare notes and ideas on the best strategies and tactics around garage sales and it is also fully Social Media integrated to allow users to tweet, post and spread the word of sales they or their friends could be interested in.

The app is all about saving money in so many ways! It identifies sales before the user sets off so they don’t burn gas driving around on the off-chance of seeing a sale; they know exactly where to go. The app will also benefit users with a passion for haggling and negotiation to help sharpen their sales skills - every penny counts and the Garage Sale Finder app was created to do just that.

Americans are the most self-reliant and self-sufficient people in the world and in these times, just when these two virtues are most crucial, an American-designed and produced app comes along to make them even more successful in their ongoing bargain quest - whether they are keeping the items or hoping to resell them later for profit!

The app will be available on the iPhone app store shortly and directly from the Garage Sale Finder website at http://garagesalefinder.com/

The Garage and Yard Sale has come back into style and Garage Sale Finder is going to be the essential app for anybody with an eye for a bargain.
