What The Tech: App of the Day Yard Sale Treasure
Yard sales are hit and miss; Saturdays can be filled with great deals or wasted hours and gas.
Yard sales are hit and miss; Saturdays can be filled with great deals or wasted hours and gas. Every yard sale enthusiast should check out a mobile app to help find the best bargains and exactly what you're looking for.
Yard Sale Treasure Map is a free app for iPhones, iPads and Android devices that curates garage sale ads posted to Craigslist. The app plots all of the sales on a map of an area you choose.
By tapping on the icon for each sale, the app opens the Craigslist ad which often includes photos of the items for sale.
Yard Sale Treasure Map also has an option to mark the sales you're most interested in visiting by placing a star on them. The app can then map out your Saturday morning by creating a roundtrip route stopping at each of the sales you've chosen.
Users can also search keywords such as "sofa" and it will find sales advertising those items. The app also connects with Google maps so users can follow their GPS instead of searching for addresses.
Maps can be shared with others or printed.
