Excerpts from Stop Throwing Cash in the Trash

“My first instinct is to stop the car, jump out and start, “Dumpster Diving,” but I have to remind myself that this is not an activity most neighborhoods condone. What drives my urge is that the dumpster’s contents are piled high over the top, and I can clearly see regular household items that don’t appear to be trash, but CASH.”

Find great secrets…

“Buy a vintage piece of luggage for $2 and sell for over $300? Yes, and even for much more if it’s a well-known designer name such as Louis Vuitton. Find a rare perfume bottle in the bottom of a box at an auction that is worth over $500?  Definitely!”

My book will give you tips, such as cleaning bottles…

“How do you clean an old rusty can or dirty bottle? How to describe its general condition when selling on an online auction site such as eBay? These questions and many more of your questions will be answered in my book.”

Learn the secrets to successful auctions…

“Another auction tip: The best deals come toward the mid-to-end of auction. If you have all day and plan on staying to the end, the auctioneers, at that time, will sell rows of boxes for $5 or even $1. You can find rare or first-edition books, magazines, kitchenware, signed vintage towels; all sorts of goodies. Take what you want from the pile and sell what is left at your next garage sale.”
