Most experienced couponers have some sort of stockpile. Now, most of us don’t have our garages filled like those on Extreme Couponing, but we have our stashes.
Now, what if I told you that you could turn your stockpile into a money making opportunity?
Many women who choose to stay home decide to sell Avon or Mary Kay to help make ends meet.
Instead of selling make-up for someone else, take your skills of couponing and earn money for your family.
Why not sell some of your stockpile at garage sales or even flea markets? Especially if you have some products that will expire before you will use them. Most of the items you could sell for a decent price and still turn a profit!
I see absolutely no problem in doing so. Every store in America buys products for a price and then resells them for a profit. This is what free enterprise is all about.
Now, I am first and foremost a proponent of donating items. And, by no means am I suggesting that you clear shelves or hoard items. I am totally against these acts. (I have a shelf clearer in my area and I can never find the items in stock at my nearest Walgreens – it is very frustrating.)
But, if you are like our family, there was a time when we were the ones in need of money for bills. We were the ones who could have benefited from donations or from selling our stockpile (if I had though of it then!) If you are in that position, think of your stockpile as inventory for your own business.
In today’s economy, sometimes you have to think outside the box to make ends meet.
What are your thoughts on this? Would you consider selling items from your stockpile at a garage sale?
