Time to Save: 4th of July, Amazon Prime Day, Tax-Free Weekends
4th of July sales and Tax-Free Weekends, along with (in a small way) Amazon Prime Day, all have their roots in American history and our annual celebration of independence. No, seriously.
On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence. Skirmishes against the acts and rule of the English Crown had already begun prior to this date but escalated quickly afterward.

FleaMarket Flippers: A Repurposeful Life
I have with me today Rob and Melissa from Flea Market Flippers. Right away you are probably thinking that what they do is flip houses or property. But in the case of Rob and Melissa they don't flip houses or property they flip items, cast-offs, things that other people throw in the trash.
Listen as Rob tells how he got into flipping with his mom and how that eventually became the business that he and Melissa have today. Remember the Nordic tracks? You'll want to hear the rest of that story!
What started as a side-hustle has turned into a full-time business with approximately $150,000 worth of inventory and takes 3 storage units to house. It's amazing!
As a SavingsAngel fan, you're also invited to take part in the Flipper University Workshop. It's free and an easy way for you to discover whether or not flipping/reselling items could be a perfect fit for you!
