Make Money From Tidying Up With Marie Kondo Netflix has been killing it lately! First, all the memes made me want to watch Bird Box, then after seeing so many posts about Tidying Up With Marie Kondo we finally watched it the other night. They are definitely doing something right - and people are marketing for them on social media like crazy! The whole craze with the KonMarie method got me thinking about another aspect of the whole thing:...

2019 Flipping Challenge It's a new year and a time for a new flipping challenge! 2018 is now behind us, and it's time for the 2019 Flipping Challenge! Last year's flipping challenge didn't quite end up how we had planned. Once the last items sell we will have made close to $4,000 from $5, but we know we can do better! Check out our recap of the 2018 challenge to see the mistakes we made last year that...

2018 Flipping Challenge Recap 2018 was a good year to be a flipper. We had a ton of great flips and managed to finally travel the 600 miles up the 127 Yard Sale this past summer. But one of our not-so-great moments was how we finished our 2018 Flipping Challenge. We started last year with the flipping challenge - to take something you paid $25 or less and flip it. Then take that amount of money and...

Selling On Facebook Marketplace: How We Turned $115 Into $2,250 In One Hour This past weekend was a good weekend to be a flipper! We sell about 85% of our items on eBay, but this past weekend was 100% selling on Facebook Marketplace. The pros to selling on Facebook Marketplace are that it's local so you don't have to ship the items and there are no fees associated with it. Some cons are since it's a local app,...

Lyndi's Success Story: Her First Time Shipping Freight Today we have another success story to share! This one is exciting because it was this Lyndi's very first time shipping freight! These get us even more excited then our own wins. We love it when people are making money doing something they love. Lyndi almost threw in the towel (and lost $200) on this chair that she thought she couldn't ship. Before Lyndi listed this Joybird Soto chair on eBay,...

Two Flea Market Flips Bring In $6,500 Last month we had two awesome sales within two weeks of each other. Two flea market flips that were a total investment of $325 that made us $6,500! That's a 2,000% return on investment! I stand by my statement that I don't know where else you can get these kinds of returns! These two items were lawn mowers. They were not just any run-of-the mill mowers, but commercial stand on...

$450 eBay Sale From a $50 OfferUp Find This week we had a great flip! We turned a $50 investment from OfferUp into a $450 eBay sale! Sourcing items from my La-Z-Boy is one of my favorite things to do! I love browsing OfferUp, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist and LetGO when I have a few minutes of downtime in my day. I found these stilts on OfferUP for $65. I shot the guy an offer for $50 and he agreed...

How To File A Shipping Insurance Claim If you have been an eBay or Amazon seller for any length of time, most likely you have had to deal with a shipping insurance claim at one point or another. Because let's face it, sometimes the carriers don't care as much about our packages as we do.. via GIPHY Hopefully this doesn't happen to you and your packages arrive safely. But if something does arrive damaged, no reason to panic. As long...

It's no secret that I love flipping items. But I especially love it when there are days like this one when a few flipping sales can equal a couple grand! This 24 hours had 3 items that sold, that equaled $2,400! That's a good day! All three items were bought from OfferUp. (It's starting to be one of my favorite places to buy things from!) Two of them sold on Facebook Marketplace and one on eBay. We have...

Holy buckets Batman! Last month was a crazy one for us. We were crazy busy buying, selling, and shipping items out that we sold on eBay, Facebook and OfferUp. (But mostly eBay). The total was $17,900 in gross sales! We will dive into the flips in just a minute, but first wanted to say we are super grateful for the month that we had last month. Last year we had a few pretty low months for us, and to...
