Technicool: High-Tech Yard Sales

By  | 

Bargain hunters love two things: sales in a store and yard sales. Now, you can go to a yard sale everyday from the comfort of your own home.

It's what's known as a "Yahoo! Group." The website "" has groups for just about anything you can imagine.

One of the newer groups is Bay County Online Yard Sale. Here, you'll find items for sale, items people are looking for and upcoming yard sales at people's homes.

Right now, the group has 64 members, but anyone can join. All you do is go to Click on "Groups." Where it says "Look for a group," type "BayCountyOnlineYardSale" as one word. Then click when it comes up.

If you'd like to start your own yard sale group, you can do that as well. Just click on where it says "Start a Group." To become a member of the group click "Join this group." It will be on the right. You have to apply for membership in the group, but the registration process is fairly easy.

All you need is a Yahoo! ID and you can get those for free. After you're approved, which shouldn't take too long, you can start looking over the merchandise that's being offered for sale, or perhaps, put something on line that you'd like to sell.

If you don't have a Yahoo! ID, sign-up for one. All the IDs come with a free e-mail box and it's useful for surfing Yahoo! services.
