Looking for a fun weekend plan for you and someone you love -- a friend, a child, a sibling, or a significant other? (Or a way to get away from it all on your own?) Look no further than this article! You can modify the plan to your preferences, but these are some basic ideas you can incorporate into your weekend so that you can have as full yet relaxing a time as possible. And, of course, you'll get to go garage saling and maybe find some great secondhand merchandise!
If you want to start really early -- maybe you and your companion are early risers, or you just want to make the most of the day you spend with them -- you can have a sunrise breakfast. Use a weather website or an almanac to determine when the sun will be up, and then start making the food so that it's timed to be ready as the sun comes up. Then you can enjoy a beautiful nature show while you devour your delicious meal!
Next, hit up some garage sales. You may want to plan the route in advance so that you can hit up the maximum number of sales in the time you have, or you may prefer to wing it and go where your whims take you that day. If you decide to walk, be sure you have enough carrying containers to haul your purchases with you. If you decide to drive, bring along some music you can both enjoy and make the car ride enjoyable as well!
When lunch time rolls around, make sure you've packed a picnic lunch, and find a good place to stop and eat it! You may know of a favorite park or a scenic spot where you can spread out a blanket or sit on a bench and eat your lunch undisturbed.
Once you're done eating, you can go back to garage saling until closing time for the majority of the sales rolls around. To finish out your day, take your purchases home and start a project with something you bought. Don't just toss your new found items aside -- if you plan to restore or refinish something, start it that evening as a fun activity to finish out the day together.
