“I don’t have time to make money flipping.”  Have you ever heard that excuse? I have! So, I am going to give you tips on how to build a successful side hustle flipping used items with the remaining 72 hours of your work week. All of us are busy with jobs and family obligations. We are tired, stressed out, and overworked and I get it.  I’m the first one to tell you, I don’t like schedules and...

We all dream of things we would love to have or would love to do right? Wouldn't we all love to be happy campers? We may not think our dreams are possible, but, sometimes they are! And to make them possible, we have to make goals, save, and prioritize.  Sometimes though, we impulsively buy something now because we think we can’t wait! Those impromptu purchases come with payments, interest, and money we really should be...

We just left for a 5 week trip all across the U.S. to pick used items to sell. We are making several stops across multiple states for four weeks and then we will hit the 127 yard sale. We have certain things to remember to pack whenever we go on a long trip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yJjB5LHPtE We will start in Michigan and work our way down to Alabama over 4 days, and then home to Florida.  All along the way...

When we think of our job or side hustle - the word happiness doesn't typically jump out at us. I wouldn't think of work as something that makes anyone happy. But it can! Reselling used items really does bring me joy. Of course it's not all butterflies and rainbows, but doing something with passion makes all the difference in your mood each day. So how exactly can it help you be happy? Let me count the ways. I...

Set goals? Do we even need them?  What is all the hype? Do they really help us?  Yep, I used to feel this way too. I didn’t understand the power of goals until I made some. Okay, I may have watched other people make them first. Then I saw them achieving their goals and I decided I should do it too. We all need goals so that we know what we want, what we need, and where we...

Are you planning to retire early? And wondering how to make that happen? Retirement is a life changing event for so many. Honestly, retirement has never really been something I’ve thought about. Why? Because, I really love what I do! I love flipping so much that I pretty much feel like I’m retired already!  With that said, I plan to continue flipping well into retirement. I enjoy it so much and I really do believe that...

We’ve flipped quite a few valuable items that we’ve pulled out of the dumpster over the years. Honestly, we’ve got a lot of love and hate for doing it - of course the hate is from internet strangers who don't fully understand what we do. But the fact is commercial and small businesses throw out a whole lot of great inventory right into the dumpster. That's why recycling equipment has become a great avenue to...

Last month was a good month to be a flipper! But it was a whirlwind with the end of the school year events for the kids, hosting our shipping bootcamp, and planning out the summer with both work and a little relaxation and fun. We ended the month with total revenue being $20,359! In this post we will dive into the costs of good sold, our shipping costs, ebay fees, and of course the PROFITS! https://youtu.be/Mgh5ityX4CE To...

You’ve probably heard of Craigslist, but do you know how to sell on there?We are big fans of selling old unwanted things, and flipping items, with Craigslist being one of our go-tos. It's been around the longest of the local reselling apps so many people are comfortable selling on there. The app isn't laid out as pretty as some of the newer ones, but there are still many users on the platform.We make our full-time...
