Use one of these garage sale finders and you'll never have to drive around trying to find those hard to read garage sale signs that often lead to nowhere.
These free apps and websites will not only help you find out about yard sales in your area, some of them will even navigate you there and alert you when new sales are posted.

Yard Sale Treasure Map is a free app that takes Craigslist garage sale listings and puts the locations on Google Maps so you can quickly find garage sales around you.
Allow the app to access your location and you'll see all the garage sales within 20 miles. You can choose to see the sales that take place either on Wednesday or Saturday.
You can click on each sale and view the complete Craigslist posting for photos, descriptions, and other details.
You can also use the app for driving directions, get a list of sales near you, and to rate the sale once you've visited.
There's a subscription plan available for just $1.99 a year that unlocks other features like viewing the sales taking place on other days than Wednesday or Saturday, create a route from garage sale to garage sale, and a search so you can find the treasure you're looking for.

Garage Sales by Map is another free garage sale finder app that links up Craiglist with Google maps.
You can view the garage sales in your area on a map, as a list, or by photos of sales in your area.
You can view the entire Craigslist ad with a click and favorite sales so you can quickly find them later.
My favorite feature of Garage Sales by Map is that it clearly displays the days and hours of the sale without you having to go through each of the ads to find that information.
There's a premium membership available for $4.99 a month that removes ads.

If you're not interested in using an app to find garage sales, you can go straight to Craigslist and look for sales under the "Garage and Moving Sales" category.
Craigslist has tools that allow you to set the date of the sale, the miles away from a certain zip code you'd like to search in, and other filters so you can search titles only, only look at listing with images, search for new sales, bundle duplicate listings, and include nearby areas other than your chosen Craigslist city.
You can view your results as a gallery, list, or on a map. You can also search within the garage sale listings.

Garage Sales Tracker is a website where users can search for garage sales in their area that have been posted directly to the Garage Sales Tracker website.
Unfortunately, this means that you're only going to find it useful if your city has sellers that are actively listing garage sales.
Each garage sale listing has the dates and times, address, details, and photos that you can browse through.
You can set up a notification so you get an alert when a new sale in your area is posted.Continue to 5 of 5 below.

Yard Sale Search is another garage sale finder website that works a lot like Garage Sales Tracker.
You can put in your city or zip code to see a list of garage sales in your area. This is limited by the garage sales that have been listed right on the site so the size of results will depend on how many people in your area use the service.
You can also use Yard Sale Search to post your yard sale or get notified when sales in your area are posted.
