{Cash Is King} My garbage flips

So as a lot of you know already from reading my Garbage Room Diary editions… the treasures never seem to end.  I’m sure some of you are wondering how I manage to move around my apartment among all of the things I’ve found over the years.  Well, I’ve decided to turn this fun little hobby into a lucrative business.  Just in the last 2 months, I’ve managed to flip $345 worth of garbage finds online through Kijiji.  The excitement that I get from selling someone else’s trash is indescribable.  I’m building an empire here people… Slowly but surly.

Stay tuned!
