When It’s Okay to Aquire Junk

Posted on September 8th, 2014 by Discount Debbie


We all like to try to make sound investments, and sometimes those investments come in the form of stuff. When we make these types of investments it’s important to learn all we can about the item before we do so. It’s also important not to take on too overwhelming of a task.

When You Can Fix It

If you have the skill to fix a broken table or an old car, and it will be more cost effective than buying a slightly used or newer item, then by all means, get the item, fix it up, and proudly display it in your home. If you even know someone that has a restoring skill it’s worth looking into. You could end up with a very nice piece of ¬†furniture or car for very little money.

When You Have The Time

Flipping houses has become a bit of a money making venture for many people. It can be a very profitable venture as long as you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Always make sure your have the home inspected first and have the proper resources. Most of all, when you plan to do a good deal of the work yourself make sure you have the time. Factor in your work, family time, and recreational activities away from home. If you don’t you could end up with a second home that you just don’t have time to restore.

When You Can Sell It

We have heard the stories where someone sells a masterpiece at a garage sale for fifty cents. The story also can go the other way. People can and have spent hundreds of dollars on junk. When buying an old item with the intent to sell it again always try to be aware of what you have and what it’s worth before you buy or sell it. Do your research beforehand or take some time to reasearch a find before making the splurge.
