VarageSale App Is The Newest and Safer Way To Garage Sale

SLEEP IN WITH VarageSale AND SMASH THE WEEKEND GARAGE SALE CLOCK ON THE HEAD BECAUSE YOU CAN SHOP FOR BARGAINS WITH THIS COOL APP!   It was late last year when the VarageSale App started popping up in my Facebook feed and I was intrigued to find out what it was all about.  I had heard a few people in my circle of friends chatting about this new App which you can use on your Smart Phone. VarageSale is FREE to use at www.varagesale.com, and the mobile app is available on IOS, Android and Kindle devices. Since I don’t own a cell phone I had my wife download the VarageSale App from Apple iTunes to her iPhone so we could check it out. My wife and I and are huge savers when it comes to buying second-hand treasures or even brand new with tag items that people sell. One of the best places for us to find these super saving deals are during the summer months at garage sales. Sadly in Ontario not many people hold a garage sale during the winter unless it’s an indoor garage sale so there are about 6-7 months each year that we were left […]

Will 24 hour Facebook Auction Pages Make You Rich? : The Saturday Weekend Review #122

SELL ITEMS ON FACEBOOK   What started as a place to connect with family and friends has turned into a money-making venture with Facebook Auction pages popping up all over the free social networking service. The 24 hour Facebook Auction pages have quickly become some of the best auction sites around because of the sheer volume of people who use Facebook. My wife and I are not shy to say that we love second-hand shops. We hardly buy anything new unless we need to because most often we can find it used for quite a bit less than retail or sale prices. If we aren’t scouring through the second-hand shops we are checking out Kijiji which is an online buying and selling website where you can post your Wanted or For Sale ads for free. Kijiji is much more than buying and selling though since it’s branched out to include vacations and employment as well. Over the years we have purchased so much from Kijiji we’re safe to say that most of the contents of our home has been previously loved. Another way we would score great deals was from the more traditional route in the form of a garage […]

Where can I get cash for second-hand clothes?

EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS   Don’t think that you can’t get cash for second-hand clothes  because you can if you know how to turn used clothes into money back in your pocket.  These days your options span from selling second-hand clothes online to having customers come to your home for a garage sale to visiting a consignment store. There was a time a couple of years ago when we shopped second-hand clothing stores because it was cheaper to buy clothes that were used rather than buying them new. The problem is that so many people are now frequenting these shops that prices have gone up exponentially to the point where you have to justify a purchase price. My new motto is “just because it’s used doesn’t mean it’s a bargain price” and it’s true, if you know your prices when you shop second-hand shops. You will be shocked at some of the prices these days although if you go to the right places you can still save some money. Going into Value Village used to be a fun trip for us because we would try to see if we could find good quality items that we would have to pay […]
