A national garage sale listing site is preparing for exponential growth as the government shutdown ends, but its effect still causes citizens' financial uncertainty. The number of nation-wide bargain hunters may be on the rise.

A national garage sale listing site expects exponential growth as the country experiences financial change and instability.

Garage Sale Give Back recently launched its website, where users can list their garage sales for greater local exposure. Company owner and CEO Jonelle Wilder says the site is currently featuring an average of 200 listings each week, and expects that number rise considerably as the country is feeling the effects of the government shutdown and other economic stresses.

In the wake of the government shutdown, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Tuesday, October 22 of this month that 11.3 million jobless Americans are still looking for work, and on Friday, October 25th, CNN predicted a 9.5% increase in average health care costs in 2014. This may prove to be a perfect recipe for an increase of bargain-sale shoppers as American families look for ways to reduce their spending, and possibly even their income bracket in an attempt to qualify for government health care subsidies.

"I'm sad to see so many of my neighbors worrying about the future, but I'm grateful that I can step in and offer a solution, too," says Wilder.

She says her company tries to provide a win-win for users and communities by offering a user-friendly interface and by donating a portion of its profits to a featured charity each month. She says her company aims to highlight the good in the world and remind others that there is always a silver lining.

"We may not be able to change the world," says Wilder, "but we aim to support the ones that are trying."

She says her website is ready to take on the challenge of increasing its user base, and continuing to provide the best service possible.
