Why is the Palo Alto wide Garage Sale only every two years? Surely this is not expensive to organize and benefits everyone? Sellers clear stuff and get a little money; buyers get stuff for reasonable prices. The fact that it is city-wide encourages more people to participate and it's also a great social event to get together with neighbors. In these tough economic times and with mounting interest in the three-Rs of the environment (reduce, reuse, recycle), holding this annually seems to be good all round.
