When garage saling always carry a list of the family's sizes (clothes, coat & shoe) as well as window sizes along with a measuring tape.

Every year before garage sale season starts, I make a list of items I need for around the house or personal items I'm interested in finding. That way I have a "road map" for the season.
One year, I was interested in looking for a cookie sheet organizer (I wasn't even sure such a thing existed), but low and behold, at a sale there was a wooden cookie sheet organizer! I noticed a cookie sheet in a wooden 3 section organizer. I asked about the shelf and he said his uncle had built it for his aunt! I now own a cookie sheet organizer for 50 cents!

Great idea!! It seems like I like going to garage sales, but if I'm not focused on what I need then I buy stuff I don't. Or I'll let garage sales slip past and then remember days later that I saw something I needed at one, but couldn't remember at the time. Thanks! (and from a fellow South Dakotan!

I have a very slender cabinet in my kitchen, maybe 10 inches. It won't hold anything since it's too narrow for pots to sit flat.
