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...

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...

I enjoy it so much and I really do believe that...

Spray Painted Fabric Chair Rescued From The Trash Before I jump into what I did to the chair, I have to mention that this chair was found in the trash. Just another item that was rescued from ending up in the landfill. All of us pickers, flippers and resellers are doing a great service to our planet. But that is a post for another day.

Have you ever heard the phrase, "The key to a happy marriage is low expectations." While we laughed at that statement, there is some real truth to it. Expectations are often met or exceeded when we under promise over deliver. Instead of the other way around. This is true in marriage or any relationship, including a buyer/seller relationship. If there is one thing I’ve learned over the past 24 years of flipping, it is to not give my...

What if you changing jobs was not just a dream but could be a reality? Joanna is a project manager by day and an evening and weekend flipper who has managed to make some great money to pay down her student loans, fund a...
