Sale #6 – Super Mario Kart

I am pleased to report that sale #6 is now in the books, I sold Super Mario Kart for my asking price of $35. Always nice when folks are willing to pay your full asking price. This puts me at an even $200 in cash. I have been struggling a little to find something worth investing that $200 into to make it grow quickly, but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve that I am researching. I have noticed that cassette tapes are starting to really grow in demand and the local thrift shops have not yet caught onto this and are still selling them for $0.25-$0.50 a piece!

Sale #5 – Super Nintendo Console

Two days, two sales! Hope to keep this momentum going!

Today I met up with a nice guy who suffered the misfortune of having his Super Nintendo quit on him. Thankfully I had one for sale and he was very pleased to become the new owner of the one I had for sale. Likewise I was very happy to add the $80.00 he paid for it to the A Flipping Million cash fund.

This leaves me with only 3 Super Nintendo games left in my inventory and $165.00 in cash which I hope to quickly turn back into product I can flip!

Sale #4 – Super Mario All-Stars

This has been way too long in the making! But, I have a valid excise- kind of, more of a lesson learned. After buying the Super Nintendo and games I kind of feel into nostalgia mode and had some fun turning my 8 year old son onto the video games of my childhood. Thankfully we’ve had the fun we wanted and put everything back up for sale earlier this week.

The first item to see was the Super Mario All Stars cartridge for $35!! Not bad considering I got the console and 4 games for $100.

This leaves me with $85 in cash along with a Super Nintendo console and 3 Super Nintendo games for inventory. Now that the busy holiday season is out of my way I plan to really pick things up here on the site, I hope you’ll follow along. Who knows, maybe we will hit the $1,000,000 by the end of the year?

Sale #3 – 387 Lbs in Weights + $150

While this sale took a lot longer than I had hopped I am very happy to report that it has finally been dragged across the line. I won’t outright say I will avoid weights in the future, I did make a 50% profit in month, but I would have preferred a much faster turn around time.

I tried several different approaches with listing the weights. I tried listing them altogether as one lot with an asking price of $200. I tried breaking them up into smaller lots with slightly higher rates, and I even tried once with a post selling the plates individually at $0.60/pound.

In the end it was a post with no pricing that said I was accepting offers of cash or trades that got the job the done. Within 24 hours of posting I had an offer to trade the entire lot for a brand new pair of $300 work boots, I did decline these, and a few hours later I connected with the eventual buyer who offered $150 cash.

I am now on the hunt for some new items to get this cash into so the flipping can continue on. Stay tuned!

Sale #2 – Mini Fridge + $50.00

Two days in a row I am getting to record sales- I hope to keep this streak going!

Today I sold a mini fridge that sat in my basement that was rarely used. Aside from the $50 cash I got from selling it, I am sure I will save a few dollars per year on the power bill as well! It all adds up!

This sale now gives me a total of $100.00 in my Flipping Fund which I now use to invest in anything I think I can make a profit on!

Current Totals as of this post

  • Sales: $100.00
  • Cash on Hand: $100.00
  • Inventory on Hand: $0.00

Sale #1 – Deep Fryer + $50.00

I am happy to report that I just completed my first sale- a deep fryer that I love, but isn’t so great for my health (aside from AFlippingMillion.com I am also currently working on YearofGettingHealthy.com). I was sad to see it go, but happy to feel like this flipping million project is now officially underway!

This deep fryer is not something I flipped keep in mind, this is something I sold from my personal belongings and the proceeds from this sale will be placed into my Flipping Million bankroll.

Current Totals as of this post

  • Sales: $50.00
  • Cash on Hand: $50.00
  • Inventory on Hand: $0.00
