Well, we got a little more well rounded with this round! Again our strategy was yard sales, and we went multi-state. We started in the Nashville area for the first weekend and found some great buys! However, we really racked it up when we visited family near Lexington, KY. We spent a couple of morning and found some great items! And…our side account is going to get really healthy from the left-over items that haven’t sold yet!
We even used some of our $256 to have a little fun while out treasure hunting, grabbing some food and buying a few fun items!
As we move into Round 9, we are going to have to find ways to make larger purchases as it is just plain hard to spend $500+ at yard sales. We could keep doing this and make plenty of return, but for time sake we are going to move on to different strategies.
One strategy we are going to try is wholesale auctions. More on that with the next post…
