The first few days back in my native US I spend at local “garage” sales. A garage sale is a place where people sell their second-hand items for a day or two outside of their homes. It is a great place to pick up some deals. In college, it was how I completely furnished my dorm room, and later my apartment. Everything that I owned in those days, from the iron to the bed frame, had been purchased second-hand.
Now, on visits back home, I scan the sales for various odds and ends that I need for my son on our visits back.
