Our Environment Is Top Priority - 20 Free Recycled Curb Finds Saved & Recently Sold For $829


It's time to stop accepting and engaging with dramatic negative energy on Steem. To those who find solace in polluting our feeds with the former, figure out your issues and discontent privately or offline. Steem's community at large doesn't need it.

Instead, it's game time to start prioritizing how we can each make a positive impact on the real world. It's far more important and there's no good reason not to. Focus on all of the environmental changes that've been happening under our nose for the last few decades and snap out of it. @alexvan is taking matters into his own hands. We need more of this selfless mindset.

If you're not supporting or trying to conserve our environment in some way, it's fair to consider if you're actually part of the problem. Think about it.


ALL found in my neighborhood's street recycling, saved from waste, and sold for income.

Some are big, some are small. Most shipped with salvaged packaging. Each and every one was repurposed with the same concept: REDUCE WASTE IN OUR ENVIRONMENT.

This is NEVER work. Each sold item brings me happiness for making an impact, while also helping me not need to work for anyone else for over 4.5 years.

  • Online sales are shown as revenue before fees and shipping.

  • You can sell virtually anything online if you see its potential value on the market and make the effort. Hmm...

  • I had an $850 cash purchase of a street find postponed last week due to a buyer's work emergency, but we'll likely reschedule.

  • My pipeline of high quality household goods is growing exceptionally well where I can command higher prices and reject offers I'm not excited about. It's just like posting on Steem... consistency and quality effort yield compounding results over time.

Always love these posts, Matt! Got any 'before' pics of those loafers?

As for me, October total sales came out to $11,611.04


The loafers were nearly in the same condition. I just got the shine so I could say "just shined" on my listings and for added value.

$11.6K?! Damn dude. That's rock solid. Is this from wholesale buyouts? I need more info.


Lots of won auction items, plus that really good auction win of just $7 that sold for $2,500. Some thrift store, goodwill outlet, and garage sale finds too - of course.

But what really matters is profit, and for you it is really all profit as they are found for free.
