    What do you get when you mix 101 organized ladies, consecutive work shifts for four days, 20 committees plus plenty of good finds at cheap prices?  One of the biggest garage sales around.
    The Statesboro Service League has prepared for months to orchestrate its annual Attic Sale on Saturday at the Kiwanis Fairgrounds. And Service League leaders promise bargain hunters will not be disappointed when the doors open at 7 a.m. The entry fee is $2 and all proceeds benefit local community projects.  
    “Garage sales are booming as the recession lingers,” said Mari Hopkins, Attic Sale chairman. “We think as people continue to pinch pennies that we will have a larger than normal turnout this year for our sale.”
    Urkovia Andrews, a resident of Statesboro and mother of a 7-month-old daughter, has been a fan of the Attic Sale for the last three years.  
    “I've always been a garage sale person so the idea of multiple garage sales combined into one really caught my interest,” Andrews said.  
    In the past she has found treasures such as luggage with wheels for her great grandmother, children's games for her younger in-laws, various baskets she uses for gifts, books and a variety of housewares.  
    “I always come with a friend to make sure we wake each other up early; and we plan our arrival time for the exact moment the line starts moving,” she said.  
    Her strategy includes making multiple trips through the large warehouse to ensure that she sees everything and gets the best bargains.  
    “Everyone is looking for a bargain nowadays and the best thing about the Attic Sale is that the bargain always comes with quality behind it,” Andrews said.
    In its 36th year, the Attic Sale promises tons of items, including educational toys, baby strollers, home accessories, holiday decorations, high quality bedding, comforters and draperies for your home. Shoppers can also find deals on furniture, mirrors and appliances of all sizes.  
    The League takes pride in conducting a very organized sale, void of clutter and confusion.  
    “We painstakingly organize all the goods so people can shop easily,” Hopkins said.
    The sale begins at 7 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m.
