This is a great way to make extra money. You can sell on, Amazon, and Bonanza to name a few. Or even Etsy if you’re a crafty lass. You can sell old clothing, electronics or whatever.

You can buy stuff thrift shopping for resale too. Or you can make something to sell. I sell handmade molds out of Amazing Putty on both eBay and Etsy and make a killing. They’re easy to make and people buy them like crazy.

You can come up with just about anything and there’s a lot of money to be made doing this. Some make careers out of it and do really well so give it a try if you haven’t already.
