You begin to realize that opportunities to make money exist in great abundance, as soon as you get in the habit of looking for these opportunities. And when it comes to finding one of the biggest, easiest, and most profitable ways to make some extra money, nothing beats selling items online! And even though you probably do not have piles of useful used items spread all throughout your house, you can easily find such items for sale. As you begin to visit garage sales and yard sales, you will find that lots of people sell useful items for “get rid of it” prices – items you can sell for more on eBay!

When it comes to shopping at garage sales to make some extra money, the first key is to start with a small-scale operation. Your eBay seller rating is important, so if you start out selling a lot of little items, you will be able to build a solid eBay seller rating early on. You should only need to make one, small investment into your foray into eBay; this should be a small investment, and the money will be paid back to you over time, after which you will continue to reinvest your profits. Start with about $50, buying lots of smaller items; you can double or triple this money, pay your investment back to yourself, and then use only this money for your garage sale shopping from that point forward!


You can start to look for items that you will be able to sell at a higher price once you have established a good seller rating and built up a little reservoir of money. The biggest key here is research; just because you might think something will sell for a high price does not mean it will! Even before you head out there to shop at garage sales, you should know what you are looking for; in this way, you can be proactive instead of reactive.

Finding items that others want and making these items available for auction is really all there is to making money on eBay. Once you get into a good groove of finding the items people want, your initial investment can start to seriously grow!
