If you live inside the city limits of Decatur, do you have a bunch of clutter that you need to get rid of and want to make a little extra on the side? Are you wanting to re-docorate a room, but need to do something with the old decor? The City of Decatur is allowing for its citizens to hold yard/garage sales for free that weekend. Also, instead of only being able to hold it for two days, you may hold it for 4 days (September 26th, 27th, 28th, & 29th). So, now would be a great time to start cleaning out those closets, attics, and drawers!!
