    If that doesnt ring your bell, maybe just the idea of a clean basement or garage will get you pumped up for National Garage Sale Day. This Saturday, Aug. 9 (held the second Saturday of August annually) is clean up - physically and maybe monetarily. According to hrblock.com, garage sales average $4.2 million dollars of revenue weekly in the U.S.
     
    This weekend is prime time to display your tired trinkets that will look like treasure in the eye of the beholding passers by. Like it was for that British man, and many others, maybe it is.
