Scavenger Life Episode 285: Ready for Anything
Scavenger Life


Published on Nov 21, 2016
This is our first podcast after the election that has made Donald Trump the President of the United States. We clearly remember what it was like during the eight years of George W Bush: the expensive, devastating war that we're still fighting and one of of the worst economic crashes this country has ever seen that we're also still getting out of. Mismanagement, corruption and incompetence were the trademarks of the Bush administration. The most recent evidence doesn't make us feel any better about a Trump administration and a deeply Republican Congress who claim to hate government but now own it. The new enthusiasm around White nationalism is a scary and real thing. The screwy logic of dismantling the progress we've made on renewable energy and pollution reduction is difficult to understand. But here we are. Hello.

Who knows will will happen over the next four years. The Affordable Healthcare Act will most likely be dismantled so we'll need to figure out how to get healthcare again. There's a clear sense that everyone is waiting to see what happens with the economy. We're hoping for the best and planning for the worst. We hope our fellow Americans remember that we are at our best morally and economically when we are fully inclusive. The US is at its greatest when we govern from a belief that we live in abundance that we can all share in, and not scarcity that we must fight over. Instead of our leaders forcing us to choose who among us we must hate and feel superior over, we each must personally decide to embrace and help each other. We're all in this together.

After the shock and disbelief wore off, we talked about it and agreed that we must be ready for anything. What else can we do as Scavengers? We started our eBay store almost exactly eight years ago when banks were failing and we were surrounded by evidence of impending doom. Selling online was a way for us to seek some amount of safety and control. Rather than put our fate in the hands of an employer, we felt better waking up each day and working for ourselves. We moved to a more affordable part of the country and cut out any unnecessary expenses. We carry no debt (except our mortgage), and keep a little cash nest egg if we need it. The idea that there's a safety net in the US is an illusion, so we live each day as if there is not one. Let the adventure continue!

eBay was steady for us this week. Lots of low dollar sales which we were happy to have. We've been putting all our energy into filling up our store with new items.

You can see photos of the renovation we've been doing on our second rental on our other podcast http://www.shampooandbooze.com/. And if you haven't already, we invite you to our new forum http://www.scavengerlife.com/forum where we can now better share and archive our knowledge. See you there!

Finding $2000 Money In The Garbage?!?! Dumpster Diving!

Today we may have found a drug dealer's stash of cash in the dumpster/garbage or did we? For this prank I took my good friend Boomer out dumpster diving and hid some fake money in the same bag he was looking through. Lets see his reaction when he finds the stash of cash! :)

Scavenger Life Episode 286: Black Friday, Just Another Day on eBay
Scavenger Life


Published on Nov 28, 2016
This week, we had a steady flow of sales which felt great! In fact we sold about sixty items which is a big volume for us. That's almost ten items a day :) Unfortunately they were all mostly low dollar items :( Our average selling price was less than 30 dollars. It was a good example of grinding out a profit one item at a time. This is how bills get paid, so nothing to complain about. The pipeline is flowing.

But it also shows that we've been spending much less scavenging this year because we've been busy either traveling or working on our rental business http://www.shampooandbooze.com/. You really do have to put in the hours looking for the items that will sell for $50, $100, $500. Any good scavenger knows that the items that bring a high price takes sometimes hours going from thrift store to thrift store, yard sale to yard sale, auction to auction. For the last six months, we've only been scavenging one night a week which is where we get most of our inventory. We're good at what we do and find items that sell, but our numbers show that we're simply finding bread and butter items. After we finally renovate our second rental https://goo.gl/9w5Iql, we plan to get back to scavenging much more and raise the quality of our items...which will raise the profit we make each week. And it's not just the money, we love to scavenge!

Hope you guys had a good Thanksgiving.

Scavenger Life Episode 288: The War Of Attrition Will Not Grind Us Down
Scavenger Life


Published on Dec 12, 2016
Interesting conversation on the forum https://goo.gl/PDEDn5 about the glut of clothing sellers on eBay (and elsewhere) and the reasons why. This speaks to the broader question of 'is there too much online selling competition to make a living' now that there are weigh-n-pays and smartphones everywhere. We think it's just a matter of time before the peak hits and the hobby sellers burn out. We're still making a living and having fun. We hope the same goes for you too.

Another great topic on the forums was Free Shipping https://goo.gl/c4p1Hs, especially now that the holidays are fully upon us. Do you offer free shipping? Why/why not? This is a topic we always go back and forth on.

Hope you're having a great, busy, annoying shipping (that means you made money!) week.
