HOUSTON – There's a simple way to make quick cash and we think just about anyone can do it. Have you ever heard of flipping? You buy something at a thrift store or garage sale and you resell it to make money.
Flipping is a great way to add to your income, but you have to know what to look for. It's like a citywide scavenger hunt and the prize is quick cash in your pocket.
"I love getting out in the thrift store, trying to find the hidden treasures," thrift shopper Jen Meneely said. "It's kind of like gambling. I love gambling."
"It is a great way to make money, but you really have to know your product," Pippa Williams said.
Williams and Meneely met at a thrift shop and hit it off. They started shopping together right away and then created the website and blog Too Cheap Blondes. They don't typically "flip" items, but they certainly know what to look for.
"There are people out there who do this to supplement their income. There are others that do it full time and make a lot of money doing it," Williams said.
Good items to flip include furniture, artwork, books and kitchen items. The "Too Cheap Blondes" think the easiest item to flip is clothing.
