Finally… I thought of a creative use for all those little yard post signs left behind by lawn care companies!
Last week, the lawn care guy came by and sprayed our lawn. (A company called Second Nature does this 4 times a year for us. We love it because we no longer have any weeds!)
After he left, I went out to retrieve the little “we sprayed your lawn today” sign that he always leaves in the front yard.
When, all of a sudden, I got a brainstorm:
These would make great yard sale signs!
They’re little, so you wouldn’t want to use them as directional signs (unless you just put one big ‘ol arrow on 2 or 3 of them).
Of course, I didn’t think of this creative use for lawn care signs & posts prior to my last garage sale, but now I’m glad I’ve been saving them for years because I’ll definitely be putting them to use at my next yard sale.
Can you think of any other creative uses for these nifty little things?…
