One Dollar. 100 pennies. Today $1 doesn't really get you too far. 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...

       Alright everyone, here's the best flip of 2016 so far!! (I have a few more flips in the works with some serious potential so I'll keep you posted). A pair of Seadoo wave runners! I purchased this set a few weeks back and sold them over the weekend.         I received a call a couple weeks ago from a close friend who told me his employer was trying to sell the...

A large part of flipping items is to make a profit. My family relies on the income that I make from buying and reselling. But a HUGE side benefit from frequently visiting the flea market, yard sales or thrift stores, is the amount of items I can SAVE money on for my family. Anyone who has kids knows that they can be expensive. For some reason they require a lot of STUFF starting from the...

Must have been that extra special leap day that did it. ;) Or just that I am consistent in buying items and listing them and several of them sold this month.  9 of them sold to be exact.  For a grand total of $8,224. Not a bad month in the...

Christmas is over and here we are jumping into a new year! 2016 already. Time seems to go faster and faster every year. This year was especially fun because my daughters absolutely loved everything about Christmas. Ok, well their favorite parts were the presents and the cookies, but I think it is safe to say it is now their favorite holiday. Seeing their faces light up when unwrapping gifts was so much fun. My 3 year old...

The Sleep Number mattresses have been one of the top items I have purchased to date!  Why so great you may think?  It is just a bed right?  Well, these mattresses are desired by a lot of people, but are really expensive for many people to buy, so if they can get a good deal on a nice one, then many go for it. The thing that makes this one of my TOP purchases, though,...

And even though I am not a coffee drinker, I liked the way it looked.9. Concept2 rower - I originally purchased this exercise machine for my wife to use for her personal training clients. While she liked it, she only has...
