Make $$$ while Garage Saleing

Everyone knows how fun it is to yard sale, and find “treasures” for practically nothing. I buy pretty much anything I need at yard sales. This includes my kid’s clothing, and toys, my clothing, house decorations, furniture, jewelry, Shoes, EVERYTHING! (please note I am VERY picky, and mostly buy stuff that is brand new, and in great condition)

This can  become an expensive hobby at times, and that’s why I like to look for ways to MAKE money while I’m yard saleing as well, so that some days all my treasures can be paid for by finding one great item that I can sell and make money back. I would like to share with you a few of my “secrets” in doing this.

1. If you have an ebay account look  under the category “ebay top shared” it lists the most popular items being sold on ebay. It gives you ideas on what to look for at yard sales, and what people are buying.

2. If you see something, that you know is usually very expensive, and the person is selling it super cheap, just buy it, and try to sell it on ebay or craigslist.

3. If you find really gorgeous new clothing (and especially) with tags still on it, but it doesn’t fit anyone in you know, buy it anyway, and take it to consignment shops. Especially if you can get it for $1.00-$2.00!!

4. If you  find  a nice piece of furniture, and it’s super cheap,  buy it and sell it on craigslist.

5. Ask some of your friends if their is anything they are looking for that they want you to find them at yard sales, and add on a small “finder’s” fee.

Last week I found these adorable Uggs, they  were worn one time, and I got them for $5.00 I looked them up on ebay and their selling for around $60.00!! A decent day’s pay for doing something I love!
