  2. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I'm going to visit our neighboring county's tax auction (real estate) later this week. Our plan is to first make more progress with debt payments. Then, once we have the extra cash flow available post snowballing, we want to save up and buy with cash a tax auction property or perhaps a HUD...

    dh told dd & I about a weekly auction he'd hear about in a town about 50 miles away. We make that trip about once a month or every 6 weeks for items we can't get in our little town. They have a Sam's (company I work for provides my card) in addition to other places that double coupon, so I can...

    Was surfing the 'big one', you know, that super power of online auction shopping, looking at gift cards to find some discounted for gifts (got a $25 Gamestop card for DS for $21.01 shipped) and it blew my mind to see people bidding for MORE than the cards were worth. I'm not kidding- Amazon...

    Does anyone go to auctions and buy items to resale? My DBF wants to do this. We have an auction house that does Estate and Repossession auctions every 2 weeks. He wants to do a flea-market type of thing, but I was also thinking maybe craigslist as well?? Anyone have any experience?
  12. General Chat You have got to see this auction. Be sure to read the full Q&A to seller to get the full effect of the idiocy going on here...DH and I laughed pretty hard.

    Given the choice, would you prefer to go to the Sat. morning garage sales or an estate auction? I am facing this choice but am leaning toward the garage sales b/c it will take much less time. I love auctions if I'm wanting to kill a whole day but if not I prefer the g.sales.
  17. Supplemental Income, Small Business You pay between $.10 and $.50. You won't pay more than $.50 max. It's a good deal! List away!
