  • For those frugal shoppers in the Leavenworth area who like to save money, this weekend is going to be wonderful. The annual Fort Leavenworth Spring Yard Sale will be held on Saturday beginning at 6 a.m.
    The Fort Leavenworth Spring Yard Sale is a frugal shopper's delight. This is where military residents open up their homes and sell furniture, household appliances, toys, clothing and much more for drastically reduced prices. All military families who live on the installation are authorized to sell at the yard sale. There is even a location where families off post can sell items. You can find just about anything at this yard sale.
    The yard sale begins at 6 a.m. and you do not want to be late. I know when I have participated in the yard sale in years past that people from across several states travel to shop at this sale. I can also tell you that a large amount of military families will be participating in this sale. While driving around the installation this week, I have seen several homes that have already had their garages filled with items to sell at the yard sale.
    You do not have to be military to shop at the sale. However, when coming onto the installation anyone in the vehicle over 16 must have identification, you also must have proof of insurance and your vehicle's registration. You may also be subjected to a random security check.
    So I remind you to set your alarm clocks and rise early on Saturday. This weekend will provide shoppers with great deals throughout the entire Fort Leavenworth community.
