Flipping things on Craigslist has been an interesting and profitable journey. I started selling stuff that was just lying around the house and now I've got a knack for spotting deals. Meeting up with folks locally saves on shipping hassles too. This side hustle is perfect for someone who enjoys the thrill of the deal.
