Want to find great items to flip but get overwhelmed where to look? How about finding them from your couch! I love visiting flea markets and thrift stores on a regular basis, but I am also slightly obsessed with finding items to flip while sitting in my living room watching Christmas movies. (I LOVE Christmas movies. Any time of the year.) If I had to pick one of my favorite online places to find items, hands-down it's Offer Up. I have found...

It is no secret that I love finding things for a good deal! Getting something at a reduced cost gets me energized. What even gets me more excited is when I can turn that good deal into a profit. Sometimes I love buying things at a good deal and keep them for my family as you can see in this past blog post, but much of the time I enjoy buying things and reselling them at...

Another month as a reseller in the books! September was an interesting month because we had an emergency trip take place. We decided to evacuate from hurricane Irma and take our 5th wheel up to Michigan. We had to do some title work on our camper anyways in Michigan, so decided to just go and do it then and outrun a hurricane. We ended up being gone for two weeks so that cut into our work...

Today we have a special treat! We got to chat with our friend and Flipper University student Anthony Frye and see how he's doing with his reselling business. Anthony has been reselling for about a year and a half now, but didn't get really serious about it until about 4 months ago. He had been doing it part time (only about once per week) and mostly selling clothing and making a few dollars on each sale. After...

Have you ever gone to ship something, only to find that you don't have the right size box for shipping? You don't want to pay extra to ship a larger box, but you don't really want to buy another smaller box either. I'm here to show you that you don't have to! If you have a box too large to fit your item, you can cut it down to the size you need. It sounds...

I always seem to be a little late with these monthly reports, but I guess this month we can blame a hurricane for throwing things off. This past month we totaled $5,260 in sales, and $4,729 in profit! Not one of our higher months like when we hit $12,220 flipping items for profit, but still not bad for being gone for 3 weeks of the month. (This is also when budgeting for a variable income comes...

Do you use PayPal for online transactions, personal or business? Have you always trusted them to keep your money safe against any fraudulent activity? If you use PayPal regularly (I still do daily), this post isn't meant to scare you, but to help you if you ever find yourself in a situation like I did: with your PayPal account frozen. I debated whether or not to share my story about PayPal on our blog. The reason...

Can you believe summer is already coming to a close? Sorry to be the bearer of bad news to some of you. I was not trying to ruin the end of your summer. (Although some of you may be welcoming school starting again. :) )   Many of you are starting to get in the back to school mode if you have kids, and maybe you have been thinking about things you can do as a...

Recently we've had a few negative comments (2 total) on the blog and social media, and while we know those come with the territory of putting yourself out there on the internet, we wanted to address their concern.  Both comments basically said that we were greedy for making money on things that people need. I am not going to link to them, but we left the comments up on both the blog and our Facebook...

Last week was a pretty great sales week! We had one day in particular that was a high sale day. We sold 3 items for a total of $1,070!  Two were sold on eBay and one was sold through a Facebook selling group. The first item we sold was a coin operated arcade game. I had brought it out at our yard sale in the week prior and put a $350 sticker on it. It didn't...
