I've held this sale every spring for the past few years and always made good money selling my health and beauty items for $1.00 each. This year we just didn't get much traffic and we only made $75.00. Then we had to lug everything back in again.
I've had better luck lately selling things on my Facebook Virtual Yard Sale page. Here are some recent winners:
|This lot of 6 shampoos sold for $10.00.|
|These 2 bags of cat food sold very quickly for $5.00|
|And this lot of 7 feminine hygiene items sold for another $10.00.|
I was so exhausted from the yard sale (I was up at 6:00 to put everything out after being up several times during the night with our sick dog), that I forgot to go to Rite Aid and roll my UP Rewards.
Since my $5.00 UP Reward from this deal expired, I looked for a way to start fresh today and found this deal:
Contour Next Diabetes Meter - $9.99
- $10.00 coupon that you can print HERE
Get a $5.00 UP Rewards (Limit 1)
Result = money maker!
Alas, I accidentally bought the Contour Next EZ meter which was on Rite Buy for $9.99, so it was free, but I didn't get any UP Rewards.
Note: There is no tax on medical equipment, so you will need to add something small to your transaction to use the $10.00 coupon, unless your cashier knows how to adjust it down.
Finally, I went to Giant to do the gas points deal explained so eloquently HERE by the Pink Countess. I've had problems in the past using the 300 bonus gas points coupon to buy just a gift card, so I always look for something to add to my transaction. This time, it was the Lysol Max toilet bowl cleaner for this TMF offer. It cost $2.60.
I now have 1511 gas points on my account, which I guess means that the registers at my store have been updated, since I only got 3X the amount I spent on the gas card, but not the 300 bonus points.
