Hard to believe a whole week of this month has already past! Time really does fly by when your having fun!
Let’s get into this day of finances.
1.) Delivering for Extra Cash
Today I decided to focus mostly on doing some grocery and food delivery. The thing I love about all the apps that allow you to do this, is the fact that it gives you so much freedom to work on your own schedule.
For example, I worked in the morning but then I needed to go home for a while and get an order ready to ship. So when I finished my delivery, I simply went offline and was able to do what I needed to before logging on for a bit more in the evening.
Today, I delivered with only two apps: Instacart & Uber Eats
(For those interested in learning a bit more about these types of apps, I wrote a post a while back on the topic which you can find in the community here: https://community.thepennyhoar…what-you-should-know)
On Instacart, I did two hours which took me a total of 1 hr and 45 minutes to complete. For those two orders, I earned $44.29
On UberEats, I spent most of the afternoon and a bit of the evening with almost back to back orders.
I spent 6 hrs 35 minutes logged on. In that time I made 16 deliveries. With tips and a small $2 bonus per delivery they were offering in the evening I made $98.12 + $12 in cash tips.
If you do the math, that comes out to over $18 an hour, but when you factor in taxes, gas, etc. it is technically less, but the fact that I can make that money almost on demand and on my own schedule is what makes delivery such a WIN for me!
2.) My Biggest Flip To Date!
If you are wondering if reselling works, here is proof. Though this doesn’t happen all the time, it still does happen.
I mentioned the other day that I sold an item, but I wasn’t going to share about it until I got paid. Well, today the buyer paid and I shipped out the item.
The item was this SDSU Jackrabbits Wresting Singlet:
FUN FACT: Wrestling is considered the oldest sport on earth.
I picked it up from the thrift store because I saw one had sold on eBay in November for $69.99.
I was expecting to get that much for it.
When I went to list it though, I saw there was one other seller selling the same thing new but without the tags for a huge amount.
So I listed mine high as well. Overnight, the person selling the other one put an offer on mine for $70. I knew it was worth more so I counter offered an he countered back and we ended up at $125.
Although he was selling his much higher than that and I may have been able to get much more if I had waited a while. I was happy to take his offer and let him hold onto it and try to sell it for higher.
Why? Because I ONLY PAID $5 for it!
After shipping and fees, that leaves me with over $100 profit, on a wrestling singlet of all things!
I believe this happens to be my most profitable resale flip to date, and I will take that financial WIN all day long!
There are other things I could mention but this post is getting long so they will just have to wait.
Thanks for reading this far, I know I can be kinda long winded but I get excited about financial WINS no matter how big or small.
But I also love to hear from you guys what’s going on in your lives so please feel free to leave a comment!
LESSON FROM TODAY: You never know what items can be valuable. If it catches your eye or looks interesting, look it up on eBay, you might be surprised by what you find!
