Is the economy driving people to sell their stuff?

There are 26% more garage sale listings for this weekend this year than the same weekend last year for the Hampton Roads area. (last year 93, this year 117)

What's driving the trend?

With such mild temperatures, the thought crossed my mind that it could be the weather, but a quick check of a weather almanac shows the weather was actually a bit nicer last year. About the same highs during the day, and not as chilly at night. so my completely unscientific guess, is -- it's the economy.
