  • For those looking for a great deal, let me remind eager shoppers that the Fort Leavenworth Fall Yard Sale is a little over a week away.
    The fun savings event will be held Sept. 21 and will begin at 6 a.m. The sale is open to the public, but it is important to remember you must have proper identification when coming onto the military installation as a civilian.
    For those who have never experienced the Fort Leavenworth Yard Sale, I would recommend that you shop early.
    My family has participated in this event every year and I can tell you that the fort is mobbed with shoppers and they come from several states away.
    Typically I find that a lot of the great deals are gone by 9 a.m. So you want to make sure you are there when the sales are opened.
    Another great tip to have a successful day at the Fort Leavenworth Yard Sale is to carpool if you can.
    Parking is very limited and traveling throughout the post in a vehicle can sometimes be difficult during the day.
    This is a great place to find great deals. Many military families have to get rid of items because they find lack of space in their new home or are getting ready to move to a new home.
    This is a great place to start shopping for Christmas toys early, find that perfect piece of furniture without breaking the bank or find a great wardrobe for reasonable prices. You will find just about everything at this sale.
    For those looking for sale items, authorized off post participants can set up starting at 5 a.m. Sept. 21 in the Old Bell Hall parking lot, located on the corner of Reynolds and Sherman Ave.
    This is a great way to get rid of your clutter before the holidays.
    Make sure you clear your calendar and catch this great sale. This will be a great affordable day of shopping. I can guarantee it.
