$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...

eBay Local PickUp: How to Prevent Being Scammed We get this question all the time: "If I meet a buyer for eBay local pickup, am I covered? Are they able to scam me because there was no tracking number for the item?" Well, something similar recently happened to us, and we asked eBay the best way to handle it. Watch the video here First let me tell you what happened to us this week, then we will dive into...

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...

December flip totals have been in for a little while now (and they were all eBay flips), but we have been so focused on creating videos lately that I haven't put the income report together yet. To be honest I almost decided not to post it. I wasn't super stoked with the totals and I thought I could just skip it. But how could I skip 1 month out of the past 12? I have been consistent...

The first find in our flea market flipping challenge sold this week! In case you missed it, here's how the flipping challenge works: Find a used item for $25 or under, flip it on eBay (or other online source), and then take the flip money, reinvest it and flip it again. Keep doing it (and don't touch the money) until the end of this year! For example: If you find an item for $15, then list it and...

Flea Market Flipper FREE find of the week! I love finding great deals on items, and I love even more when I can find them for FREE! Yep. Zero investment for a potential profit. That's how we found this week's find of the week! My brother-in-law called me the other morning on his way to work and told me about a medical table he saw in the trash. He wasn't sure what kind it was, but he thought...

Here is our flea market find of the week! I LOVE finding these cooktops because they have made us good money over the years. We have made anywhere from $200- $1,800 on various cooktops. I don't like to invest a lot in them though because since they have 220 amp power, I can't plug them in anywhere to make sure they work before buying them. (I can usually find a plug somewhere at the flea market...
