When you go to your craigslist, type in FOR SALE, then put in the dollar amount...I did 100 min 125 max, your profit so far minus expenses.

Here is one that caught my eye:

This item sells at Walmart for 125 and you pay taxes there. It has been up for 12 days, with an update yesterday. I would contact the person and say you'd give him 75, see what he/she says. If they are firm, you are out a couple of minutes, but if they budge at all, and you pick it up under 100, there is 20 + profit there, and I'd make that deal ten times a day...

IF it doesn't cost a lot of gas to get there. Always a consideration, don't know your area, so this may be on the other side of town and not worth it.

This type of item is made for a story selling, about allergens and all that.

But give DOLLAR amounts a try, both on craigslist and on eBay, shake the 100 dollar tree, see what is for sale.

As you get more and more profits (of feel frisky) try the 500 min to 550 max search.

This caught my eye in that range. but this was a very fast cursory look, nothing in depth, just want you to think DOLLARS to search for, not stuff.



To add value to an item like this, you can easily pick up some cheap/free/public domain or PLR reports on GROWING, a whole bunch of stuff...maybe even a herb farm, I mean actual herbs and spices...but I would then write it up as a biz op. Pay 400 (if he'll take it, sell it as start your own mini farm...for maybe 750). You will find a lot of these things at a higer price range, and with reports and how to info so cheap, you reframe them as a biz good with lawn mowers, tillers, high pressure water guns.
