15 Aug How We Turned $100 Into $3,200 By Flipping Items While On Vacation
Summer vacation has now come to a close.
Our kiddos just started school this week (2 out of 3 are now in full-time!), and it's time to get back to work.
At least more consistent work.
We even started a 30-day listing challenge in our members group to help us all get motivated to get listings done so we can make more sales on eBay, Mercari, & Facebook Marketplace.
We just recently got back from a road trip up the 127 Yard Sale: 690 miles of yard sales and flea markets from Gadsden, Alabama to Addison, Michigan.
We had a blast!
We will have an in depth post on what we found coming out soon! (We spent $618 and should make $9,400!)
While we were on our trip we heard that always exciting cha-ching from the eBay app.
But this wasn't just a little cha-ching.
It was a notification we were paid $3,199!
And it was an item that we bought for $100!
I bought this tire balancer from a flea market vendor a few months back. I had it sitting for a while before I finally got it listed. (I love to buy things, but sometimes getting them listed takes me a little longer than I plan.. )
It sold on eBay for $3,199 with free shipping.
Freight shipping from Florida to Idaho cost $325.
So after eBay and Paypal Fees ($346), shipping, and the original $100 investment, our total profit came to $2,428.
Almost a 2,500% ROI!
Where else besides flipping items can you find those kind of returns!
And it saved this machine from going to the scrap yard/landfill.
AND it saved the customer load of money by not having to buy a $15,000 machine!
In case you can't tell, I am absolutely in love with this flipping gig. It energizes me and I love how different every day is. If you think flipping could be a good side hustle or even main gig for you then check out our free intro workshop to see if this is a good fit for you.
