Spring is finally here and so are garage sales. Garage sales are a great way to recycle, and to enable individuals and families to buy clothing, furniture, household items and other things they need at reasonable prices. There is one word of caution, however. When shopping at garage sales, you do not want to bring home bed bugs.
