Yes I feel like jumping up and down for joy and I will tell you why. Saturday's yard sale hunting was a bust because the weather kept a lot of people from doing their yard sale. So my lucky spot that I usually find some stuff at was a bust. Sunday I really did not feel like going out but my Partner convinced me because Sunday was nice. We hit a few yard sales but then.........
I went to one yard sale I almost missed it because they had it way back in their yard and you would hardly notice it. But I am glad we found it because when it came to video games and system we hit the mother load!!! The seller had a lot of video games and systems he was getting rid of and a lot of great dvd movies. Needless to say that we came out with literally a trunk full of stuff at a decent price. I got sony xbox systems, 2 sony psp's and games a whole lot video games, movies and even some airplane models. Most of the sellers stuff was priced at $1. Sweet right!
The best part about being at this yardsale was that we were the only ones so we could take our time looking over his merchandise. Heck we even help the seller put up a tent to protect his merchandise from the sun and helped him rearrange his merchandise on his tables so that it would look nicer for when people looked at it . He was very grateful for the help.
So this weekend was a victory.Now I just need all this stuff to sell on my site. Keep Hustling.....

Score!!! Hello all well here's the deal for today. I went to my local Savers( thrift store) to donate a bunch of stuff that I no longer needed and to get my 30% discount card. When I finished unloading my unwanted stuff the guy who took my stuff gave me two 30% off cards. Which was very nice of him. When I went into the store I always head right to the section where they keep their video games and books. They had no video games that was worth my time and the ones they did have was marked $2.99 for one. Use to be $2.99 for 2. Workers at savers said that management wanted to go up in price and when they did that it pissed a lot of their customers off. But that's not my story.
A worker I know there who knows that I collect video games called me to the back room where they collect their donations. He pulled out a bunch of sweet video games and movies they just got in. So I had first picks of some nice video games. Nice!!! I grabbed all that I wanted and as I was checking them a guy was standing over my shoulder looking at what I was doing. Looked like he wanted my games. He then left to check out the other videos I left because I didn't want them. He was mad when he passed me for the second time knowing that I grabbed all the good games and movies. Sometime you win and sometimes you lose. Hey I have lost plenty of times to others looking for the same thing that I was . I got about 40 games with a 30% off coupon. All I can say was today was a good day! Happy Hustling

Hello Everybody hope you had as good a weekend as I did. I found some crazy yet interesting stuff. Like this Movie from who knows where. I think they were trying to copy the Dragon Ball Z cartoons. Who know I just know it was a great find for cheap. I like finding different stuff.
I realized this weekend that I am way over my $20 budget. I mean way over. In reality the thought of doing this kinda experiment is good but the reality of it is that if you want to catch the deals your going to spend more then $20 bucks. Also once you spend the money, list the items and wait for it to sell. But in that time your waiting for your items to sell your missing out on more deals that you could have made because you don't have the money. See what I mean
Keep on Hustling

Well what the Heck. Rudeness. I hate dealing with rude people when I go to garage sales, flea markets or any out door event that's selling stuff. Perfect example was today I was at a garage sale looking at some video games a guy walks over and states that he was buying all the games. Then he tried to take the movies I had in my hand thinking they were games. I kinda lost it on him and put the dvd movies up in his face and told him asshole these are movies not games. He pissed me off so bad. I don't mind letting you have stuff it's just the way that you approach somebody that makes a difference. I hate people like that.
Another time I was at a garage sale and this guy literally took something out of my partners hand stating that he was buying that. I almost lost it then to. I shouted so loud at the stranger don't touch me or anybody else for something that was not worth the money I had in my pocket which was about $5 at the time.
Also when people are at a yard sale and the hoover over a table taking possession like that's their personal stuff so that you can not see what's on it. Just Rude.
I know when you deal with re-sellers at yard sales and garage sales you will deal with rude people but Damn it's only stuff. Keep Hustling!

Hi my name is______ and I have a Goodwill online bidding addiction. Ok so I use to go to goodwill their online auction a while back and I thought with the shipping fee, sellers fee plus what they were charging for the items were to expensive for my taste. So I stopped looking at them until........ About 3 months ago I start looking at the site again and then I started bidding. Their site is like eBay you bid on stuff. But the sellers fee and shipping you gota watch out for because it can be pricey. I try to find stuff to buy cheap to resale. Yes some say goodwill is a rip-off and I agree but if you have a budget, know what your buying and know how to resale it then your good. I made the mistake of over bidding on something and hopefully I will break even on it. I got caught up in the bidding war.It happens.
Also the bad part about buying from goodwill auction is that they take so long to ship you your stuff because they use UPS and that's get expensive. They also ship on the last day of a 5 day shipping out promise. So it takes about 2 weeks to get your stuff. Which in my case is way to long to wait. I have no patience.
But if you look and search and know your pricing you might be-able to get good deals with them but don't forget to include the shipping and sellers fee when your figuring out how much that item is really costing you. Keep Hustling

Hey Everyone how was your weekend? I did a Happy Dance This weekend why??? Because if you look at my pictures I got all this stuff cheap. I even got a Sega Console and the games for 5 bucks! I had a great weekend in regard to yard sailing in my secret community. This community knows how to treat yard salers right with good stuff cheap. So I am happy. In the pictures I got some board games and x box games, computer controllers and some other misc stuff. So like I always say put in your miles when it comes to yardsaling because you never know what you might find. Keep Hustling

I notice people in my area think they got gold to sell when it comes to their yard sales. but if I go say 15 miles outside my area the people doing the yard sales are happy to give you a bargain and truthfully they got better stuff. So yes it pays to go out of your way at times. Keep hustling!
