Months ago, I received an email from a lady who came across my blog and suggested that I drive the streets of Glendora before trash day with a pair of rubber gloves. In her email she told me that she had made $3,000 a month digging through garbage and re-selling it! Ummmm…no thank-you! However, don’t think I won’t stop by your garbage if you throw away something sell-able–that is as long as I don’t need rubber gloves to transport it.

That’s not even the last of it. In the past year, I’ve sold a leather recliner, bookshelf, wood chair, lamps, antique dresser, nightstand, another wood dresser, and probably even more than that! All waiting for the trash man!
