Your adorable. I can tell you have never worked a grueling office job. Lol. No thrift stores around office parks. You get about 30 minutes to wold down lunch. Then with traffic and parking, that takes up the other 30 min.
I start work at 6am, get off work around 2:30 and hit different thrifts throughout the week and pick up my 3 kids by 4pm. Some days I'll go on my lunch just to get some extra hunting in.
Thrift: Mon, Thurs, Fri
Post: Tues, Wed, Sat
Great Point.. I don't do clothing, because I don't enjoy them, in my case the return rate is very high on clothes, waiting for sale is very long , listing clothes is time consuming , and I often find some imperfections , stains and tears. So I leave clothes for other resellers, I do large , heavy and bulky items, which everyone else hates. But the idea is good
Love watching your videos when I have time. I started reselling 3 month ago part time so far sales have been just about $6000 with $3500 in the past 30 days! It’s possible to make great money doing it if have the drive to do it. I spends my lunch driving to the post office and thrift on days off, first thing in the morning or later before they close. Excited for garage sale season to start.
Your videos have been an amazing learning tool, I can’t wait to join your mentoring program. I started with only $200 bucks and reinvesting my profits back into the business which is why it’s growing so fast.
I think for me why it’s been successful is, I have a good eye for style, I know what people want, I love to research items and I don’t need much sleep. I’m a single father while working 50 hours a week at my day job. no excuses just do it(Nike don’t take down this comment)
Awesome content as always. Your videos keep me motivated. Part time reselling is definitely possible. I had some luck recently where I made about $60 in five mins at a local thrift store. One item alone cost me $0.50 and it should make me $53 in profit! Not bad for a quick trip to the thrift store :) I made a video about it if anyone is interested.
Hi Ralli Roots, love your video, started my journey through all this charity shops (im in UK), you inspired me to move around and do something useful. At the moment im working part time and studying business, but in the future i would like to do what you doing most of the time, hopefully college knowledge will help me to grow, and your video will put aswell me on the right track. One more time thanks you both! BIG HUG FROM UK!
Ryan and Alley on ebay I hold weekend sales but I don't get any sales during the week. It's like they wait for the weekend. How do I generate sales during the week. I boosted everything up to compensate for the sale but still. I would like sales when I am not having a sale. Am I having too many sales? What is the percentages should I use during my sales? I do first weekend of the month 15%, then 2nd weekend I do 20% and then 25% and end the month 30%. So, I have adjusted my prices to 30% over the comp price. So, I don't know. Thanks
You know your in a expensive goodwill area when 10 dollars and 14 dollars for shoes is cheap lol, at my goodwill they are all 3.99 and at rnzys goodwill most are under 5 dollars. Location makes a huge difference. Your goodwill is ripping off low income people insanely, especially those Jean's prices!!! I was trying to comment on your insta post about that person saying millennials will come running to them when the money stop, how narcissistic are they to assume they are so important you would run to them for help haha, a stranger. And if anything they should be proud anyone is willing to bust their ass doing what they love to make a living that's everyone dream!
I do this every day. I get 30 minutes for lunch at my job and I hit to thrift stores that are within 2 miles of my work every Monday through Friday. Sometimes it is very profitable and sometimes it is a wasted trip. But it is by far the most enjoyable part of my work day.
That doesn't even account for days like today where I dropped my wife off for an hour long appointment and I popped into the local goodwill where I found one item that should sell for around $200.00 that I paid $12.00 for. Many times I strike out, but if you use whatever spare time you do have available to look for deals you will find them. Even if it's one yard sale or one thrift store I always make the effort, because all it takes is one to find that gold.
Yep this is me almost every single day of the week. It is definitely possible for anyone out there. At first it was definitely a struggle because I didn't know exactly what I was looking for and had to constantly look items up on eBay. But the more you do it, the faster you get and the more you can look through every day. Have a great day, best of luck to everyone out there!
Ryan, such a super video!! What I love most about you guys is you take the time to show other ppl examples of how they can make eBay work even when time and money is short. You are the BEST encouragers ever!! Seriously the best!! Pls know I have such great admiration and love for you guys-Callie and bulldog too!!💕👍🎉
@RALLI ROOTS super excited, Ryan! Thanks so much for taking time to answer my question; that alone means the world. I love that you're still reading and replying to comments. I love your work, so always looking forward to new releases from you. In fact, I'm releasing episode 3 of my "Day in the Life of a Full-Time Poshmark Reseller in Canada" is going up today, and ideas and inspiration comes from other channels such as yours, so I can honestly appreciate everything. I know YouTube is a TON of work. This video I'm releasing tonight took me over 10 hours to edit...... :/ Footage across 3 days, and as much fun as it is to do everything from recording what I'm doing and editing (Decided to give Premiere Pro a shot and I'm freakin' STOCKED with how it turned out).... Anyway, babbling on here. Let's just say, I 100% appreciate the time and dedication you put into your videos, and know first-hand that it is a LOT of work. Cheers. :)
:) we're trying to put out at least 3 a week, last week we were hanging out with friends in texas and this week the new round of mentoring started so most of our time has gone there. More vids coming soon though, we have some fun ones planned.
@RALLI ROOTS your friends and you've never watched his videos? I jumped on this because Josh is something new and fresh to reselling videos. He's original and just starting out, I enjoy what he is producing. I think he has been making some headway in the past 2 wks, his lunchtime thrift videos are what people are coming to watch. This is why I feel the way I do.
Hey Ryan, got a question for you.
I ordered Ebay supplies (36 Rolls of Ebay Tape) from ebaysupplies with my quarterly bonus of $50.
Says item was delivered but never recieved anything that day being home that day to make sure it was delivered. Contacted them & they say they'll look into it, now this took awhile for them to investigate (with me keeping up on them with any new news) no results saying it may have gotton lost in the mail. Opened a case against them also & said case was still pending.
Now I get this message saying I will not be refunded or my supplies will not be shipped which is supposed to be 100% gauranteed & now says case closed.
They say I can appeal the case if I have any kind of proof. What proof if I have never recieved anything that day. Think they made an unfair decision. So basically I just lost my $50 free supplies.
Any advise on this case?
If anyone reads this do not be disappointed with stuff that doesn’t sell. I tried clothes and I failed. I sell only electronics, computer parts, cameras and camera lens including vintage ones. You just have to find your click!
100% what I do. My son gets home at 3PM. At about 2:15 I drive 10-15 minutes to a Goodwill and go through the store. 95% of the time, I leave with something that makes the 1/2 hour profitable. Then I drive home (5 minutes), am there when he gets off the bus and we talk for a bit. Then it's back to work (about 8 minutes). I have a massive death pile right now just from that 1 Goodwill store than I hit about 4 times a week.
We don't get a lunch break being full time resellers but we love the hunt. lol. Our local Goodwill is where we like to stop for a change of pace since we drive by it every day. That experiment we are trying out is working really good. Stopping in for 30 minutes 3-5 times a week allows us to find some great finds every time. The best time for us is late afternoons. Like you showed, these short repetitive stops can pay off. Great for a smaller reseller with limited time.
Ryan, are you a mind reader? I did this exact thing today on my lunch break, hit two garage sales. Picked up a ton of clothing for 75 cents a piece, found some vintage items, actually making more during my lunch break under an hour than what i make a week. I went really hard all week tbh lol.
A big yes - for a long time I could only put $20 a week into inventory. I aimed for turning $20 into $200 in sales and then reinvested as fast as I could. Add to this sharing with family & friends & co-workers, and checking with neighbors when they are putting stuff out, and you can subsidize your inventory with free goods. Our area does free swaps a few times a year, I give away what isn't selling and pickup great new inventory to list. It's great that you show folks how this does not have to become a big business, you can scale it to what works for you. Thanks!
Im proof. Started this year. Doing eBay only and I'm doing between $1500 to $2,000 profit monthly using money from my savings and return the Full PROFIT to my savings. I haven't been keeping up with my numbers that great 😢 but I think more accurately maybe $1800 to $2500 Monthly because my 60-day average is just a under $7,000 and I get a lot of Really Good ROI Transactions.
This is my model. I’m not here to change my life, just something for a little extra. And my profit % is lower too ... the less you have online the less viewers. But. It’s a blast!! My goal is $100 profit a month. I’ll take it!! 👊😁
Great video as always. You always do a good job of breaking down cost of goods and fees and potential profit on items. What method do you use to track cost of goods per item for accounting purposes and taxes at the end of the year? The way I understand things you cannot deduct cost of goods until the item actually sells. Individually inventorying each item in a spreadsheet to keep track of cost of goods is one way of doing things but is very time-consuming.
Hey Ryan, good video. I don't have a Goodwill, Savers, or Salvo's near me to go on my lunch break, but certainly go after work, especially on Wednesday's at Salvo's, and take advantage of that 50% off day. I like to go after work so I don't feel rushed. But I like your video, and you are 100% correct, anyone can do this, on their lunch break, after work, etc. Have a great day Ryan! - Mike
Glad you told us it was 12:12 “in the afternoon.” For a split second I thought you’d driven to the Arctic and found an all-night thrift store. I thought to myself, well no wonder he’s wearing a T-shirt instead of a tank top....
Few weeks ago I picked up 2 dvd boxes for €4 in total, sold them for €60 in total without shipping. I just got some pokemon cards have to go through them but paid €23,95 and will get my money back on it, maybe a bit of profit, and the other cards will go into my collection.
Right we forget that part thrifting is a win-win. You get stuff and make crazy profit and you find stuff for yourself at crazy insane deals. Not to mention a net "productive" way to kill time. Actually I'd call that a triple win for me because spending more time thrifting and flipping means less time spent on my bad habits.
wtfyoumeaninvalid yeah it is that way here too but they always miss things the other day I found a GoPro fusion camera haha it was in a small package and everyone missed it. You can’t ever find those things if you don’t go
I go to the goodwill outlet which sells by the pound and you can really kill it doing this find your local goodwill outlet and get working!! I eat my lunch while I drive over there and spend an hour and spend like 20 bucks to turn into hundreds of dollars
Your value village are very different from Canada .. here..ohh so seldom you can find a good one... watching your channel almost everyday and I am learning a lot.. almost ready to start my Ebay store..thanks for all the infos though..
I have a whole series on my channel called Lunch Break Thrift Trip. Sometimes I only have 15 minutes to actually shop but I still make great money. I'd say I make about $400 per month net just from the items I buy during this time. Great video!
@Cheryl Ross I dont think they were copying me. Ryan is a cool guy and he was just trying to teach people how easy it is to make money doing this stuff. Now, if he started singing "LUUNNCCHHH BREAAKKK THRIIFFTT TRIP OOOOOOOOOOOO", I'd have to make a trip down to Florida. Haha.
Walter Blake Knoblock 🤣 it was probs one of the managers repricing stuff. I was in a goodwill the other day and one of the managers god “mad” at the employees for pricing stuff too low that should be “boutique” items. She was literally pulling stuff off the racks to reprice them...sad days lol
Watching this at my 9-5 while dreading going to job #2 this evening lol. I've been binging on your videos and taking notes. Going thrifting some more this weekend and posting my first items this Sunday. Thanks for the all tips!! You two are the best!!
The only reasons I don't are:
1. I'm physically disabled and mostly bedridden. When I feel ok to go out, or have an appointment to go to, I'm wheelchair bound.
2. I'm on a disibility support program, and they don't pay much, so we live in a very small space, and have no room to keep extra stuff.
3. We don't drive, so every trip to a thrift store, is at least $24 round trip, as I need to be pushed.
:S. These are the reasons I watch you guys. I'm living vicariously lol.
Even if you wanted to do it a little bit, you could try some online arbitrage. I have kids and an elderly parent at home, so I can't get out as much as I would like. I buy stuff off eBay all the time that I turn around and flip for a profit right back on eBay. I recently bought a nice pair of leather shoes for $15 including shipping, and I should be able to get $80-$100 for them. You wouldn't need a lot of money or a lot of space to get started. Just a computer and a shelf in the corner, and then reinvest your profits back into the business for a few months to get the operating cash flowing. Hope this helps. Good luck!
I have been doing just this for a few months at the same goodwill on my lunch break and I have had days with well over 100 in goods found even some single items in that range. It really has helped pay a few bills a month.
