How One Couple Makes Thousands Buying And Selling Used Stuff

flipping for profit

Today I want to talk to you about what is, in my opinion, the best side hustle out there – a buy and sell business or ‘flipping’ things for profit.

When I say ‘flipping’ you might think of flipping houses or cars but that’s not what I’m talking about here. I’m talking about one-off, unique and interesting items. 

What if I told you that it’s possible to make a full time income flipping stuff that you find at flea markets, yard sales and thrift shops?


Not only is it possible, it’s how Rob and Melissa of Flea Market Flipper make their full time income. In fact, they made more than $133,000 in 2016 selling stuff that they bought from flea markets, thrift shops and yard sales.

Buy nice or buy twice

– My Mother, probably….I can’t remember

A couple of weeks ago I finally wore a hole through my foam-heeled $50 specials from Payless Shoes. Annoyed with having to go to the mall again so soon after Christmas, I turned to the internet and started researching cheap shoes vs. expensive shoes. I’ve always wanted a good set of leather boots, and I figured it was time to find out if expensive shoes are worth it.

The thing is, I tend to be pretty thrifty when buying for myself. While I’m happy to dole out the money to buy nicer things for my wife and children (when we can afford it), it’s hard for me to give myself the same treatment. I’m not sure why.

The topic of personal debt certainly takes a butt-kicking on personal finance blogs. It seems that most of the mainstream PF bloggers follow the Dave Ramsay line of thinking on debt – that it’s awful and should be avoided at all costs.

Though I can not stand listening to the Dave Ramsay show, I think his financial principles are sound. I prefer to have no debt whatsoever.
