Struggling this Christmas?

Some of you that read this have young kids at home.

I know that there are a few of you that are struggling with career and income.

“Christmas is a craft,” is a saying I’ve heard before.  That idea means to make your Christmas presents.

You don’t have to give the kids a piece of construction paper with macaroni glued to it and call it their gift.  It doesn’t have to be a Milk dud’s carton made to look like a goose.  You could do a cool project with them like this. Photo Credit.

I do think they want to wake up early Christmas morning to see what’s in those packages under the tree.

“So now what?”

It’s time to Flip It.

Flip It definition:

To take something you already own, sell it or trade it, for something you now want.

Look around your house for unwanted items.  (I sold used lightbulbs yesterday)  Post a lot of listings on Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace.  You can try LetGo or OfferUp or any of the other local FSBO type apps. (I haven’t had great success on the apps).

  1. Conservative prices
  2. Great photos
  3. A description that makes sense.
  4. (I always list my cell phone number, if optional).

Pile up all that new found cash.  Find out what the kids want as gifts.

Pro-Move tips:

  • Look around all those same sites/apps for the items on the wish list.
  • Bargain with the seller, you have cash and your available to pick up right now.
  • The more items you post, the more likely you’ll sell something.

Keep an eye out on my Snapchat for Christmas sales ideas and help.
