20170603 - yardsale haul - 5 - lotions, costume, sheets - 113715

It was a really good haul this week. A guy had sooooooo much comic book stuff that he was giving away for free because he didn’t want to take it back inside.

We accidentally ended up at an estate sale for a dead friend. That was kind of dark.

We saw a yard setting up a bunch of chairs and we were wondering what that was about. Turns out, it’s a Burner Peace Love & Ice Cream yearly party where they play music and have about 70 of their friends over. We didn’t know the people there, but they knew of MakePeace Manor.

Spanker Drive is a funny name for a street.

belt, lotion, pirate costume, shampoo, sheets, tote bag.

BACKSTORY: Got up around 6:35AM, made it out driving by 7:39 AM and went out until 1:28, and then again from 2:07 to 2:36 for a total of ~6 hours. Spent $143.15 plus ~$5.53 gas for 64.3 miles of driving (25.8 mpg @ $2.22/G), for a total cost of $148.68. We drove to 65 yard sales, stopping at 39 (60%) of them. We made 115 purchases (150 items) for a total estimated value of $1,400.57, leading to a profit/savings of $245.74. So in essence, we multiplied our $148.68 investment by 9.58. (Also, if you think about it, the profit counts for even more when you consider that we have to earn $1,400.57 on the job, pre-tax, in order to take home the $1,228.72 in cash that we saved. How long does $ of disposable income take to earn, vs the 6 hrs we spent here?). Anyway, this works out to a *post-tax* "wage" of $245.74/hr as a couple or $122.87/hr per person.
