Trash to Cash- Buy cheap, sell high. A podcast about making a living on eBay. http://ebayscavengers.com We are two couples who live in different rural parts of the US. We are scavengers, especially when it comes to making money on eBay by selling items we find in or near the waste stream, at auctions, yard sales, and thrift stores. This allows us to avoid full-time jobs, which gives us more time to scavenge and enjoy our lives. It's a positive reinforcing cycle.
