yard sale Yard saleing season is over, yet Carolyn said she’d seen a sign on a local road indicating a sale today. Rousing out of bed past 11AM, we figured this would give us an excuse to get in a car, thereby making a taco bell breakfast trip more worth the effort. Turns out the idiots with the sign didn’t even have the sale their sign was advertising, but we ran into another.

Total spent $2.00 plus ~$0 gas (we were already going to Taco Bell) for a total of $2.00. We bought 1 item – for an estimated value of $28, leading to a profit of $26. We only spent about 10 minutes detouring to the yardsale, so technically we made $156/hr as a couple or $78/hr per person. And to earn $26 after taxes you’d really have to earn ~$37; money saved (by not having to spend it) is actually worth more than we realize when the government’s cut is taken into consideration.

$2.00 – Vick’s vaporizer made to put Vick’s VapoRub (VapoSteam) into the air. A $48 product, but it’s sold on sale for $28.
