One man's trash is another man's treasure

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

I often see yard sales where people just want to get rid of stuff because they are moving. You see it when you drive around the block in your neighborhood (well, maybe not if you live in a skyscraper in a big city), you see it on certain local Facebook groups where people offer items for free or little money.

I had a neighbor down the street who had a whole rack with over 100 DVD’s out in his front yard and about 40 BluRays. I started browsing the titles when he came outside and told me “You can have them, take it all!”. I asked “How much?” He said: “Free, I just need to get rid of them!” He even gave be the DVD rack for free. I kept a few DVD’s for myself and I sold the rest on Ebay.

With Facebook local groups you can also easily sell bigger items that you don’t want to ship. If you have a pick up truck then you can actually make a living out of this. Just don’t take everything – after a while you will figure out what’s real trash or what’s a treasure!
