Spring is here and you know what that means! More daylight, warmer temperatures and......garage sales. That's right, you'll drive from town to town, wasting time and spending money on gas (which continues to rise) instead of great deals. That's why we are here to help you out.

It's Binghamton's Largest Garage and Craft Sale this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m at the Oakdale Mall. There will be over 140 vendors with free parking and admission. No need to drive all over the place, instead it's just one destination for great deals.

Who knows, maybe you'll find a deal like my daughter found several years ago. Tara and I love to go garage sailing together and she usually buys stuffed animals, Barbies and other girl type stuff. However one time, we found a real deal, it was a BEAUTIFUL white dress.

It was on a clothes rack with some other dresses and coats. When she saw it, she knew we just had to have it. After trying it on, it was a done deal.

Here's the best part...it was only 10 dollars and I didn't have to dicker with the seller. She put it on in the van, we drove home, I opened the door and presented the honorable Tara Michelle Pitcher.

Tara told me that she felt so special when she wore it and it made her day better. It's a memory that I'll have for the rest of my life. Quality time spent with my daughter while getting an awesome deal at the same time.

Speaking of kids, we'll have things for them to do at the Garage and Craft Sale with the Binghamton Zoo-Mobile, face painting and the GHS Kid-Zone. My point to all of this is.....You just never know what great deals and memories you'll make with your family unless you go this Saturday.
