Money Saving Monday Week 31 Of The Saved Quarter Challenge

Today, Penny at the Saved Quarter is  asking have you made extra money towards your savings goal?  I recently began selling books on Half.com and Amazon.  I have about thirty books listed, and so far I have only sold one book for a profit of $7.41. It is not much, but it is a start.  My priorities have changed, since the change in my job status.  Now between looking for new employment, I have a little more time to devote ( now more out of necessity) to earning extra money.

  •   Search the local Thrift Stores for more books to list on Amazon and Half.com. 
My open schedule will allow for this.
  •    Look for a local Antique Store that rents Space to individuals to sell their items.
By nature, I like to acquire collectible and vintage items.  So this week I will be looking for a place to sell them, (at a profit, of course.  Who knows, this could be the start of a whole new business for me!

I am also using My Coke Rewards in my $500 Holiday Challenge

That's a great idea to snag books at thrift stores and then resell on half - let us know how it goes. I've sold many books on half.com, it works!

You could try shopping garage/yard sales for books to resell too. A space at an antique mall might be good. I know of people who do well with both.

Hi Borrower,

I have been searching the Thrift Stores for books... With some luck I will find some money makers!

Yes, Garage sales are a good idea. To tell you the truth, it is the Heat and Humidity that keep me indoors at the Thrift stores. When it cools off a bit, I will be back outside.
