I go to goodwill or go yardsaleing. I usually find good deals on stuff. Hell, that is where we got everything for our baby. I found this lady doing a moving sale, she was selling all of her baby stuff, I picked out swings, seats, small crib, a ton of clothes, bottles, etc, and she told me $50! It was easily $100's new.
I am also a big craigslister.
Last week I bought 2 nice kayaks with 2 brand new paddles for $220.
I am going to relist them separately on CL and sell each for $250. That's a $280 profit! (but the pack rat in me wants to keep them and use them, I live 1/4 from lowcountry rivers.)

If you lived in New Orleans, you would keep them.

Anyway, keep posting the values of random stuff...I'm always coming in contact with it. Love Pickers/Pawn Stars...so I''m learning.

No I'm no knocking it, it just amazes me what people throw out.

Those jeans are hideous though. I hope u plan on selling those to some moron instead of wearing them.


I was thinking the same thing. Who on earth would pay $800 for those jeans?? I wouldn't pay $8!
