There's nothing like being your own boss. With the economy being hit hard and recovery at a slow pace, one way to make some extra money is by buying and selling items that interest you. Some people just jump into the auction hunting business and learn the business on the fly, knowing they will learn as they go.
Here is how it works. When people die and leave an estate or if they rent a storage unit and don't pay their bills the owners of the estate or business will hold an auction to liquidate the merchandise. There are often thousands of items up for sale at large auctions so it is easy to buy some merchandise to flip at a later date. Usually people like to focus on one area to look for at auctions or in storage units, such as furniture, when starting out. Once you get your feet wet and learn the business you can branch into other areas without losing money. Become a Storage Warrior yourself!
