"One man's junk is another man's treasure." How many of you have heard this trash to treasure saying? Melissa's dad used to say this all. the. time. There is a lot of truth to it — especially when you are in the business of flipping used items. And what's even better than finding a great deal on an item is finding items to sell that you got for free! We love finding free items, and tend to spot them...

OfferUp Flips: What We Flipped To Make $7,080 in ONE WEEK More than half of our income last week was made possible because of a few OfferUp flips. Last week was an intense week. We spent most of it in the hospital with my sister and my brother-in-law. My brother-in-law found out the week prior he had a plum-sized brain tumor and so they did surgery to remove it. We were with my sister and my nieces at the...

Reseller Income: What We Flipped To Make $11,280 in One Month Of Flipping Flea Market Items Last month was a pretty good month to be a reseller. Our flipping sales totaled $11,280! This was using mostly eBay and a little bit of Facebook Marketplace. EBay is consistently where we make our largest number of sales (about 85%),  and Facebook Marketplace is usually second (about 10%). We use Craigslist, Offer Up, and LetGo as well, but we end...

This past weekend was a good one for being a flipper! We made $6,250 in sales! A big part of the reason is because we aren't afraid (anymore) of shipping items freight. Check out what we flipped to total $6,250 last weekend: Three items made up that total, so they were all larger profit items. I have really gotten into commercial equipment more recently because there can be a huge profit with these items, and I...

  This eBay flip of the week comes to you because of healthy new year resolutions. :) How many people want to add fitness to their routine in January? A lot. How many people are looking to purchase home exercise equipment this time of year? A lot. We have already sold an elliptical, recumbent bike, a spin bike and now this week a water rower machine!  Bring on the New Year's resolutions! Bring on the flipping profits! Ha. I...

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...

Since our last post/flip, we've gotten a lot of questions about teak wood. Mainly how to identify and restore teak wood. I am sure it has sparked an interest in many because the ROI on this teak patio set was 2,500%! We spent $100 on a set of 4 chairs, a love seat, 4 bar stools and a table that we found on Offer Up. That probably sounds so low for all of that furniture,...

I love so many things about this flip. Of course I love the huge profit that we made from it, (not all flips have quite this large of ROI), but I also loved finding this one and cleaning it up. Once I spotted it on Offer Up, I knew there was potential to make some money, I just didn't know exactly how much. This post may contain affiliate links.
