I made $80 today without doing anything!

Yes, I was handed 4, $20 bills by a total stranger! How's that for easy money? No, I was not standing on a street corner, I was in my garage and my husband was a witness. This is a clean story - or a cleaning story... So where did the $80 come from? I had listed our Shark vacuum cleaner on a few Facebook Yard Sale Groups and only had one hit on the vac before yesterday and that person wanted it for almost free. Last night about 9:00 pm a woman sent me a private message on FB asking if it was still available. After a few questions and answers back and forth she told me her mom and dad would be coming for it Sunday at 1:00 pm. I assumed they were picking it up for the woman I was chatting with. She asked what the bottom line was and I quoted $80 which was $10 less than asking price. It turned out the couple was here around 12:30 pm and they were buying it for themselves because their daughter has one and raved about it. So they have a new vacuum cleaner and we have an extra $80 clear profit! Photo from Pixabay

The vac wasn't trash LOL - many years ago I had a yard sale after my first husband and I split. Everything was in the driveway in front of the garage and a woman spotted an old tackle box in the garage - it was rusted and had no bottom. She wanted to buy it, I told her it was no good but she wanted it so I told her $1.

Fantastic Happy you got so much for it! Hope you make sales so great in the future! Did you have a party with the money? That was after all 80 dollars more than you have in possession instead of items than you had Saturday night!
