Makin' It And Savin' It Sunday

I think this might be something that I would be able to do. Or it might be something that I could convince DJ to do for with me!  Money making schemes are right up his alley! Jump over and read How to Make $750 a Month Selling Used Books! 
So do you think DJ would like to get up nice and early every weekend and go book hunting with me at garage sales? It's quality mom and son time, right? Do you think this is why Anna moved away? Never. Have you ever done this? Did it work for you?
Happy Sunday,
Sonya Ann

Where's the fun in "savin' it"?????

joe said...

DJ seems like the kind of kid who would so enjoy doing this with his mom....NOT! lolz

BOTOH--it's a way for him to earn some pin money to have at school....but he's want to go find books alone prolly.

I love the idea but from Canada it wouldn't work. The ads are back working :)

I have never gotten up early to shop for books at yard sales. Usually, I have certain things or categories of things that I look for.

I like to buy underpriced antiques that I don't really want and sell immediately at the next antique shop I see. I bought a men's urinal from 40s or 50s, green and with the little manufacturer's sticker on it. I paid a quarter and sold it for $8 the next day at yard sale in Birmingham. I was selling in this yard sale.

I think you could make some money but you would definitely be earning every penny.

I am not patient enough to plow through a lot of anything for this to work as a money maker for me. I keep waiting for that proverbial ship to come in, but it seems like I am landlocked.

Sonya Ann said...

joe-Yeah, I often think that.

Sonya Ann said...

joe-Are you going to bank roll my spending spree?

Sonya Ann said...

sluggy-Hey, I'm just looking for some quality time with the boy.
But then mooching money off his parents is probably easier.

Sonya Ann said...

Cheapchick-I'm sure we can find some crazy way for you to save money.

Sonya Ann said...

Practical Parsimony-I think that is a brilliant way to make money. Honestly, its really smart. I just don't have an eye for antiques. That would be my downfall.

Sonya Ann said...

ND Chic-Yeah, I think so too.

Sonya Ann said...

Anne in the kitchen-I'm in the middle of the desert. LOL

Too much work for me. LOL! But if you want quality time with the boy, might as well profit from it.
