Lots of bargains springing-up on front lawns this time of year.

Yard sales.

In fact, dozens of yard sales were held Friday throughout Washington and Wood Counties.

But Marietta Mayor Joe Matthews says it can be a problem.

Now, people have to register with the city before selling their stuff from home.

Part of the problem is actually what's left behind.

Anything that isn't sold is often left out on the lawn.

A homeowner is allowed to have up to four yard sales a year.

There's no charge and no wait time.

All it takes is a phone call to city hall.
