I have sold many items that were free or cost me next to nothing. I’ve sold these items both online and offline, and you’ll be amazed with what’s possible. Many items that I’ve gotten for free I have sold for between $5 and $10, but sometimes as high as $100.
It doesn’t matter where you live, there’s free stuff all around us. You just have to make the effort to go and find it. Don’t be confused, this is work. If you’re looking for some easy scheme, this isn’t it.
