My name is Michele Heine. I am a previously unemployed mom who is trying to declutter her life while getting some payback for all of the items I’ve accumulated over the years. I am using this blog to offer tips on what I’ve learned in the hopes that other people can benefit.
I started selling items years ago, long before I lost my job, as a means of stretching my dollar. Many of my friends and family look to me for advice or help when selling items. In 2008 I became aware of online trading sites and started swapping items mid-year. I netted $2400+ for stuff I sold in 2009 on top of 110+ trades I made!
I will cover multiple methods including garage sales, selling things locally outside of a garage sale, selling items online and swapping items online since these are all topics I have familiarity with.
I will also share tips on saving money. One way to maximize the money you do have is to not spend as much. I’m known among my friends and family as a master bargain shopper.
