I don't thrift much in lieu of recycling, but I'm one hell of a bargain finder when I do.
I've sold thousands of items from thrift stores for similar profit margins, but prefer to get free household goods from my neighborhood's curb recycling to help our environment.
If I don't need to thrift anymore with these strong profits at my fingertips whenever I want to visit stores, this should show you how lucrative recycling is instead.
Below are 10 recent flips I bought low and sold high.
Most items were shipped made with 100% personally curb-recycled packaging and materials outside of tape.
