If you have bookmarked garage sales who's sale date is within the next seven days our trip planner will group the listings for you the following way. All sales will be grouped by the date of the sale. In other words, if you have two garage sales bookmarked, one who's sale date is on Thursday and the other on Saturday. The trip planner will seperate the sales into two days, which appears as two tabs (as shown below).
