Shipping large items on eBay We love taking road trips. In fact we planned on being on an epic road trip right now and living in our 5th wheel, but life throws curve balls sometimes and plans change. We aren't currently living in our RV, but we did decide to take the longest road trip we have ever done to see family for Christmas. We decided to load up the kids and make the trek from...

Freight Shipping 101 Do you want to sell your large items online, but freight shipping seems completely overwhelming and undoable? Good news - it doesn't have to be! I have been flipping items and selling on eBay for over twenty years now. Two years ago I took a leap of faith and decided to go full-time, right before our third baby was born. I quickly realized what I was doing was not enough to provide for our growing...

Is anyone else experiencing how fast time is going? Or is it just me? I am sitting down to write up last month's flipping totals, and the Christmas season is already here! Christmas music has been on in our house now since the end of the summer, so I guess everyone is finally catching on. ;) If you are new around here, we wanted to let you know why we post these reseller income reports. If you are...

This past weekend was a good one for flipping items on both eBay and Facebook marketplace. We sold 5 items for a total of $1,305! And we even managed to squeeze in a quick 24 hour trip to Atlanta for an engagement party as well. (We love the flexibility selling stuff online gives us). We sold two of the items on eBay and three of them on Facebook marketplace. We typically cross post a lot of...

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...

This post is the second in a series of furniture flips that were submitted in a contest a few months back. We selected 10 awesome furniture flips as the winners. We are recognizing each piece in it's own shout out/post (in no particular order). This beautiful hall table refinish was done by Ferris Mueller, who shares her fun ventures on her Facebook page Dirt Floor Furniture. We loved this piece for several reasons. One of those...

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...

Looking to save money on gifts this Christmas season so you can stick to your Christmas budget? Wanting to be more frugal now so you don't get slammed with a huge credit card bill next month? You have come to the right place! Christmas is my absolute FAVORITE time of year! I may or may not have been playing Christmas music around the house since September. I am not sure if it is the kid in me that...

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...
