When we lived in California we had a side business.
Dale would buy storage units that people had defaulted on.
It was fun to clean out the units to see what treasurer we could find in side.
It was also very profitable we made a lot of money off of eBay and selling consignment.
Dale was so well known with the owners from the storage lockers that they started paying him to clean lockers out the cool part was he could keep the stuff that was in the lockers.
We really thought we could retire and easily do the junk business and make a good living off it.
It was something he loved and it was very profitable.
We were making as much as he did at his real job right before we left Ca.
It was really hard when we left CA. to give up the business.
A month ago Dale started the junk business up again here in Alaska
And its going really well
(just look at my garage)
We have already tripled our investment.
Which is very exciting making a big profit is going quicker this time, probably because we know what we are doing.
Sometimes I get annoyed that there is so much junk in my Garage and that Dale spends his Saturdays cleaning out lockers but I do have to say it has it's perks.
In the last locker unit he bought there was tons of fun kitchen gadgets that I kept that were all brand new and high quality.
Plus there was this dishes set I had been eying at Target it was a $49.99 a set of 16.
I was so happy that there was 2 sets.
So it was like getting getting a hundred $ worth of dishes free.
I cant wait to see what treasurer he gets this weekend..
He will be treasure hunting and I will be having a yard sell this weekend something I loath.
It will cost him tho my mind is just turning as to what I want as payment..
I am think a new pair of shoes or maybe anew hand bag..
We will see.
So my question to you do do you guys love yard sales or hate them?
