I keep a stack of idea no. 5 in my car at all times. A dollar here, a few dollars there – it all adds up! My father-in-law is particularly adept at no. 8. He once sold four ten-year old water heaters for $40 each and got the buyers to pick them up! All I’m saying is that you need to give no. 8 a proper “go” at it.

No. 15 is my favorite. I once went shopping with my brother and marched into a store and straight back to this particular idea. He was aghast that I didn’t even piddle around the front areas. There is no shame in no. 15, and you can often beat used or consignment savings!
