Are garage sales helpful or do they just transfer junk from one person to the next?

    Garage sales are very helpful in economic and ecological terms. The adage “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure,” is indeed very true. The items that are sold at garage sales could be utilized by people isntead of ending up in junkyards and land fills, or worse, polluting rivers or streams. Economically, people could save hundreds or thousands by shopping second hand for non-personal or hygienic items. So, in the end its a win-win situation for both buyer and seller.

    Like seemama50 mentioned, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Garage sales can offer items that people need at a lower price than going out to the store and spending more. This also limits the demand for certain products, meaning less resources have to be used to create more products. Also, I tend to donate products that don’t sell at my garage sales intead of throwing them away after.
