My name is Peter Guest and I'm a Part Time Picker. That means that I spend part of my time searching for discounted items to later resell. I resell most items online through eBay or Amazon. I still have a full time job and I'm happily married, so I don't intend to spend all my free time auctioning and shipping stuff. I've learned to find a balance of my time.
I am making some pretty decent side bucks with just part time effort. The more energy I give towards my picking, the more money I can make. And those extra dollars really have made the difference getting me out of debt and into a smart financial lifestyle.
You can read more about my story at the, you guessed it, "My Story" page above.
This is not a photo of me... or is it. It isn't.
In this blog I'm going to share with you all I've learned about picking and reselling items. I'm going to talk (and I like to talk) about things like:
- Items. What sells, how often, and for how much.
- Outlets. What are the best websites (or retail locations) to resell your items.
- Listings. How you present your items to maximize the revenue.
- Shipping. Tips, mishaps, charges, supplies, systems, and services.
- Inventory Sources. Where the pickings are hot.
- Apps. The best mobile apps for researching values. The best way to use them.
- Reviews. Of blogs, books, websites, services, products, and other products.
- Organizing. Your stuff and your time.
- Money. How to make the most of all that extra cash your going to make.
- Links. Other people also write interesting things that you should read.
- Found Photos. I love 'em, so I'll be posting 'em. Get into it.
- Questions will be answered. Through emails or comments. Join in!
