Now, with that being said, I've had a few people ask me how to find estate sales in their cities so I thought I would share my three favorite ways...
1.) YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER
My favorite way to find estate sales is in the Pennysaver. I did a little research and it turns out that the Pennysaver is available in print mainly in California and Florida but their website is nationwide. The classified ads section in your local newspaper is a good place to check too.
My second favorite resource is Estatesales.net. I like this website because it ranks the sales by date which makes it easy to find a sale starting soon in your area. Also, many estate sale companies use this website and post multiple photos. Lots of times I decided whether or not I'll go to the sale based on the photos.
The last place I always check is Craigslist. Craigslist can be tricky because many people use the term "estate sale" to get their ad out there. Many times I find myself weeding through ads for old pieces of furniture and broken down refrigerators before I find an actual estate sale, and even then, there's a good chance that there won't be photos. You never know what you're going to find though. It's always worth a shot.
So... those are my three favorite ways to find estate sales. Do any of you fellow bargain hunters have tips you'd like to share as well?
