Maniac Monday Recap – Items Everywhere!

Dollar Flipper Blog Update

Yesterday, I took off from my 9-5 job for a little stay-cation. I planned a Maniac Monday where I would go crazy listing and prepping items all day. The plan was this: Drop daughter off at daycare.

Dollar Flipper Blog Update

I’m not working my 9-5 today. I’ve planned a maniac listing day! This has been in the back of my mind since seeing the folks over at Beeminder discuss their succesfull maniac weeks.

Dollar Flipper Blog Update, Profits

I have a lofty, forward-looking goal – work from home by re-selling on eBay (and a little on Amazon). I would go to thrift stores, garage sales, be the cool kid at the auction, and party it up with people at flea markets (just kidding, they’re a different bunch).

Dollar Flipper Blog Update, Profits

Our move is 95% FINISHED!!!! Last major thing to do is set up my eBay area.
