Penny pinchers know that weekend yard sales can be a treasure trove … but not if you waste time and gas roaming the streets for signs. For a better way to find sales in your area, visit www.YardSaleTreasureMap.com. You enter your starting address, the maximum number of miles you’re willing to travel and the day of your hunt (Friday, Saturday or Sunday). Click on “Search” and voilà! You get a Google map of area yard sales that have been posted on Craigslist, along with a recommended driving route—for free. Click on the red balloon for each listing, and you’ll find the specific time and address, plus details of what’s for sale. —Sid Kirchheimer
