Trash to Cash

Months ago, I received an email from a lady who came across my blog and suggested that I drive the streets of Glendora before trash day with a pair of rubber gloves. In her email she told me that she had made $3,000 a month digging through garbage and re-selling it! Ummmm...no thank-you! However, don't think I won't stop by your garbage if you throw away something sell-able--that is as long as I don't need rubber gloves to transport it.

Waiting to go out on Trash Day! 
Queen Size Bed Frame

Solid Oak Wood Dresser

Kids Desk and Chair Set

The Best Trash Find of the Year!

That's not even the last of it. In the past year, I've sold a leather recliner, bookshelf, wood chair, lamps, antique dresser, nightstand, another wood dresser, and probably even more than that! All waiting for the trash man!

A Big Month for Mommy Picker Sales! 
A couple good buys for some craigslisters and even better profit for the seller!

Pair of Wood Side Tables
Probable Yard Sale Selling Price: $15/$20 max
What I would pay at a yard sale: $10*
SOLD: $40


Super Big Pine Wood Armoire
Probable Yard Sale Selling Price: $30-$75

*Clearly, these items are worth far more than what I would be willing to pay at a garage sale! But, that is the secret to a great yard sale buy! Find items worth far more than what a yard sale brings and spruce them up for resale at a larger profit margin!
