Profit

We had our first yard sale in a long while this past Saturday. I would call it a success! Our goal was to declutter some things that have accumulated from life, as well as make a little extra cash, and we managed to do a little of both. Our grand total was $465. Not too bad for a Saturday morning. Our total would have been a lot more had I pulled out items from my garage...

I get asked all the time "what is the weirdest flip you've ever done?" I would have to say hands down one of my flips definitely sticks out more than the rest. It has been the most memorable ebay sale among my friends and family so I have to share it with you all.  While I enjoy looking for weird and fun items to flip, I do purchase some normal items for resale -  like new tennis...

During my stroll down the flea market aisles last week, I came across a parachute harness that intrigued me. Extreme sports interest me, but I have never been sky diving. I went parasailing about 12 years ago, with my own rig on my own boat and it ended up with a trip to the emergency room. Apparently I had hooked up the parasail upside down so I ended up going up backwards.  The clip came...

One Dollar. 100 pennies. Today $1 doesn't really get you too far. A couple decades ago you would have been rich as a kid with a dollar, but now it could buy you a candy bar with maybe a couple pennies left over. OR, it could buy you a boat switch. But wait, what does a boat switch have to do with the electric bill?  Well, when you buy used items and resell them online for a...

I am very excited about writing this post today! I just came out with my very first eBook! It's more of a guide than a book, as it is informative, but not overwhelming. (It is 17 pages to be exact). I have noticed over the years, some people don't have a lot of extra capital to start buying items to sell. I didn't want this to stop them from being able to make a profit. I...

How many of my fellow stay at home moms work from home on the side as well? If you do or of you don't you are doing an awesome job! These days it's really difficult for most families to live on a single income, which is why so many stay at home moms work online jobs on the side. If that is you, I am right there with you! I help Rob manage our website...

February is the shortest month of the year, but that didn't stop it from being the most profitable monthly income out of the last 12! Must have been that extra special leap day that did it. ;) Or just that I am consistent in buying items and listing them and several of them sold this month.  9 of them sold to be exact.  For a grand total of $8,224. Not a bad month in the...

I have to start this post by saying I am not a millionaire who can just go spend whatever they want on whatever hotels and travel they want, whenever they want to. I am an average person with an average income, but I don't have an average 9-5 job. I don't fit the mold to work 40-60 hours a week doing a 'normal' occupation. I enjoy being my own boss and having the freedom to...

Last weekend my wife and I attended a conference in Dallas for her health and nutrition company. I have had an entrepreneurial mind set for as long as I can remember, but my wife has really started to develop her own in the last few years and I am really proud of all she has done. She has helped a countless number of people get their health back in the last few years, and does...
