    Scavenger Life Episode 303: Failure of Imagination
    Scavenger Life



    Published on Mar 26, 2017
    When we hear Amazon sellers talk about their million dollar businesses, it's pretty impressive. They tell stories of buying tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from a factory in China. Maybe even traveling to China to make a big play on some private label merchandise. Or maybe they are sending employees out to buy retail arbitrage at big box stores all over their region. They have a busy warehouse and multiple employees. We imagine a person sitting in front of several computer screens, pouring over spreadsheets that has everything laid out to the last decimal place. They're basically mini-CEO's competing with larger corporations.

    This isn't us. We're scavengers and have more in common with the guys at the flea market who sell out of their cars. Only difference is that we sell online. We know how much we spend each month and how much we need to make. We are frugal and save extra money to invest in things that will make us more money (like rental property). We have often said that we're probably don’t have much in common with a Harvard MBA graduate, but we do have imagination. Even though we are not masters of spreadsheets and P/L reports, we do know how to turn trash into cash.

    Imagination is our biggest strength because we can walk into any situation (flea market, thrift store, auction, estate sale, yard sale) and see where the money is. We've learned that we make money by constantly changing. Instead of going out into the world searching for specific items, we just see what is available and then imagine how we can sell them. Finding these overlooked objects is where our business lies. Some eBay sellers seem to want to find a formula to know exactly what they should buy, how much it'll sell for, and then never deviate change course. Having imagination when scavenging is what excites us and makes us money. We never know what we'll find, but we know we'll always find something. Sitting in front of spreadsheets won't help us. We have to go out and scavenge!

    This is why we love the weekly "What Sold" thread every Wednesday (http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/f...). We love seeing what other scavengers are finding and selling. We see how people's imagination have sometimes run wild and paid off.

    Here are the links we mentioned on this podcast:
    --eBay is going to roll out a voluntary program of guaranteed three day shipping (https://techcrunch.com/2017/03/20/eba...).
    --An interesting series of short portraits of how different Americans get by: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/19/yo...

This allows us to avoid full time jobs, which gives us more time to scavenge and enjoy our lives. It's a positive reinforcing cycle.

    We are eBay Top Rated + Power Sellers. Each week we post a couple 1 hour long podcasts sharing stories about our eBay selling. We welcome all questions and stories of your own eBay experiences. Sharing helps make us all better Scavengers.

    Buying E Waste Business Opportunities
    eWaste Ben



    Published on Mar 29, 2017
    E-Waste Commodities are a growing thing with so many scrap metal scrappers starting to pick up electronics to value add to their picking or dumpster diving adventures.

    Problem is there's very few e-waste buyers and most scrappers don't want to bother shipping boards interstate, so I think there's opportunities for some scrappers to get into buying e-scrap locally.

    Scavenger Life Episode 304: Do a little bit today, then do a little bit tomorrow
    Scavenger Life



    Published on Apr 2, 2017
    Consistency is the main foundation for our successful eBay business. Since 2008, our secret has been to simply list 20 items a day. If we're not listing items, we are scavenging for inventory, or photographing items, or working on death piles. We always do something each day that builds our business. We treat our business like it's our job.

    We see the danger some sellers get in when they slack off on listing. They start making less money, so they have to get a job, which means they have less time, so they list even fewer items, making even less money. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    And truth be told, we now can take off for weeks at a time because we've built up a large enough inventory and let out store go on autopilot. I wouldn't recommend this for new sellers since we know the right balance that works for us. But when we return to our business, we go right back to treating it like our full time job.

    Here are the links we discussed in this podcast:
    --USPS now scans your mail so you can see what's coming. https://goo.gl/Xjr4t3
    --A pair of genuine 1800's Levis sold for $70,000: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic...
    --A nightmare healthcare scenario https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/29/ma...
    --A smart seller gave us good advice on what to do when a buyer asks to delay shipping: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...

    A Life Lesson I Learned At The Gym Today That Changed My Life...

    FREE BOOK - 100 AMAZING ITEMS TO RESELL
    http://greenroomuniversity.com/100book

    FREE 5 WEEK SHOPIFY COURSE
    http://raikenprofit.com/freeshopifyco...

    In this video Steve shares with you a life lesson that he learned today while working out at the gym.

    To sum things up - 10% of the time you will feel amazing, 20% of the time you will feel like crap, and 70% of the time you will feel okay according to Mike Mussina, who was a pitcher on the New York Yankees.

    The lesson is that feeling lousy every now and then is normal. Everyone feels like this at times. With that being said when you're not feeling well these are the moments that define your true character.

    It's not hard to feel amazing when things are going well, the key questions is how do you handle life when things aren't easy...

    Hope you enjoy the video!

    Published on Apr 6, 2017

I've never welded before so this is my first experience personally welding. I believe this is going to be another positive chapter in my life I'm super pumped about this purchase!

    This one is an audio pod cast. Nothing to see. Best bet is to listen in one window, play around on GIM or surf the web in a different window. It's about 1 hr and 20 mins long.

    Scavenger Life Episode 305: The Biggest Transfer of Wealth in Human History
    Scavenger Life



    Published on Apr 9, 2017
    You guys have made clear that we shouldn't talk about politics here. Makes sense. But can we agree on one thing? The Baby Boomers and their parents sure have a lot of stuff. Where's the proof? Stop by any auction and see all the piles of possessions being sold each and every day.

    After WWII, the US experienced a wave of expansion and productivity like the world has never seen before. While the government made an incredible investment in infrastructure, scientific research, and the university system, the Baby Boomers and their parents built the US into a powerhouse of design and technology. Getting an excellent college education was inexpensive, and even high school graduates could get jobs that delivered an upper middle class lifestyle thanks to advanced factory jobs.

    While we can argue why this system has come apart, we can agree that those particular days are gone. Not every member of this age group found riches, but when you go to an auction, you can see evidence of the great accumulation of wealth that the Post War generations enjoyed. So if you're skipping auctions, then you're really missing out on a lot of great scavenging. And because younger generations have much different buying habits, we may never see this opportunity again. Some people have multiple houses to store their stuff, or rented storage lockers for the stuff they can't keep in their houses.

    Think of auctions as a mix of an estate sale (selling off a whole house of stuff) and a yard sale (cheap prices!). What's incredible is that the stuff in auctions is what the families don't want. Think of what they're keeping! But even the left overs are super valuable if you have imagination. There's always a mix of practical, useful items plus kitschy, old-fashioned decor, along with truly valuable antiques.

    Going to an auction gets you to the source of where stuff comes from. This is why you'll mainly be competing with dealers and collectors because they have always known that auctions are where it's at. Many independent thrift store owners and flea market sellers get their inventory at auctions. So why buy marked up inventory from them when you can go straight to the source?

    I know online auctions have become extremely popular in the last couple years. Some of our favorite local auctions have closed down because they've gone online. While it's certainly convenient to bid on your couch, there is nothing like being at a live auction bidding on carloads of stuff for cheap. It's a carnival atmosphere with the heavy scent of glorious excess capitalism.

    Anyway, in this episode we talk about the barriers that some sellers say exist to auctions, and how we strategize as a team. Showing up early, looking through all the boxes, do quick research over a meal, pay attention the whole time, know the prices we're willing to pay, learn who likes what, dedicating our whole day. We'd love to hear your experiences in the comments.

    We also discussed these links in the podcast:

    TSATT shared a link to an interview with an eBay employee talking about the coming Guaranteed Shipping Program: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...
    Julie B share a link to the trailer of a new Netflix show. It tells the story of an eBay seller that built a multi-million dollar clothing brand: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...
    Steve List reminds us that getting negative or neutral feedback isn't the end of the world. You can always leave a comment on that feedback to let future buyers know it was just a misunderstanding: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...
    Tare shared the 5 stages of the scavenger's life. I know we followed these exact steps: http://www.scavengerlife.com/forums/t...

    We live in rural America, and we are Scavengers -- especially when it comes to making money on eBay by selling items we find in or near the waste stream, at auctions, yard sales and thrift stores. This allows us to avoid full time jobs, which gives us more time to scavenge and enjoy our lives. It's a positive reinforcing cycle.

    We are eBay Top Rated + Power Sellers. Each week we post a couple 1 hour long podcasts sharing stories about our eBay selling. We welcome all questions and stories of your own eBay experiences. Sharing helps make us all better Scavengers.
