A couple decades ago you would have been rich as a kid with a dollar, but now it could buy you a candy bar with maybe a couple pennies left over. OR, it could buy you a boat switch. But wait, what does a boat switch have to do with the electric bill?  Well, when you buy used items and resell them online for a...
