Thrift shopping can be fun WITH the kids!

I taught my children at young ages what logos on clothing to look for at thrift stores. The kids would select a rack and I would go down the other side right next to them. At that age, they were content shopping with (for?) me knowing that I would treat them to lunch afterwards for their efforts. While going through the clothing rack, my son picked up a shirt and put it in the cart. Jokingly, I said, "Good job, buddy! You've earned lunch." He continued down the same rack and came back to me with two more of the same shirt in different colors. He place them in the cart and said "this one is dinner, and this is dessert".

My son would hang the shirts he found in the back of his collar so he would have both arms free.

How I made over $2500 selling tooth tunes toothbrushes


As the holiday season approaches, listen carefully to what your children are asking for as it may very well be the next hot item to sell on eBay. I have yet to find that single one thing for this holiday season, but I have made a lot of extra cash in previous years by listening to my children. A few years ago, my young son and daughter were each asking for the tooth brush that played music … Tooth Tunes. While they didn't specifically say which one they desired, I realized that many people all over the world were seeking specific ones:  Star Wars, Kiss & Queen. These toothbrushes were purchased as gifts and / or collector’s items. Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana were also popular at that time, so I did sell many of those for young children and teens.

Thanks to my children, I was able to purchase the Tooth Tunes they asked for and much, much more from the profit I made selling them on eBay! As a matter of fact, I earned a hefty profit by reselling the toothbrushes worldwide. Each toothbrush cost an average of $7. I was able to sell the toothbrushes from $15 - $30 each, resulting in a profit of over $2500!

The musical toothbrushes fit perfectly in Christmas stockings and encourage kids to brush their teeth for 2 full minutes of music. A win-win! Buy a favorite artist today:
