I found Cook's Country magazines for 10¢ each, so I bought ten of them and paid $1.00. These normally sell for $4.95 each, so this was a good deal.
I found a Holiday Inn cookbook for 25¢ from the 1970's. It has recipes from Holiday Inns all across the country including the one in Chattanooga, Tennessee. :)
I found two Ziploc bags filled with smaller type cookbooks from an older lady who was cleaning out her house.
I love these kind of cookbooks and going through these made me think of the cookbooks I received from my grandmother when we were cleaning out her house.
Best thing of all? She only charged me 25¢ per bag. I will spend many hours going through and enjoying these very much.
I also found a Southern Living Inflation cookbook from 1972 for 25¢.
We went to several yard sales on Saturday too, I found a nice bookshelf for my bedroom for only $3.00.
I also found a set of 68 brand new CDs of the bible. They seller had then marked for $1.00, but living in the Bible Belt I knew they were worth much more money than that.
We came home and checked them online and they are currently selling well for around $65 for the set. My daughter will be sending them to Amazon for use in their fulfillment program.
With my help, she finds new items like this all summer long and sends a package to Amazon at the end of the yard sale season and then she earns money all winter long when Amazon sells her items. This is another source of passive income we utilize.
Recently we went through one of the free boxes located outside a bookstore in Chattanooga and found several Beth Moore CD sets, so we picked them up thinking they would be worth something to someone.
Today I went online and found out how much they were worth. There are seven sets of CDs on the book of Romans and they retail for $30 each while the other set we found retails for $39.95.
I am shocked that someone would just put these in a free box thinking they were not worth anything. I plan on listing these on E-bay to see if I can find any takers. I will keep you updated on if they sell or not.
