I have always been interested in the scrap metal business. The author describes how he breaks down household items to find metals like copper and gold. Very creative stuff.

"This is a great book! It contains lots of ideas on how to make money from surprising places, and the resource directory at the back of the book is worth 10x the price of this book all by itself. Highly recommended.

"This is a great book! Detailed and practical. Not theory - FACT! Eric really gives you everything you need. Recession? What Recession? If you learn how to do this, you'll always have a fall back plan. There will always be a need for scrap metal and this book shows you how to get it for nothing or almost nothing. Five Stars! My highest recommendation!"

Author Eric Michael is an entrepreneur or the home base type. In this book he explains that the information provided was compiled after twelve years of internet research and personal experiences developed a unique skill set – the ability to find a diverse selection of free items (or priced under $ 1) that could be sold on the internet for surprisingly good money. Eric has sold well over 10,000 unique items that were located for under $ 1 on the internet at an average price of over $10 an item. He has gone on to develop a popular website titled Garage Sale Academy that incorporates portions of this book, and expands into other arenas of profiting from flipping garage sale, thrift store and flea market finds, as well as helping garage sale hosts make maximum cash at their sales. Making money from home sound good? Read on!
As Eric shares in his Preface, ‘The purpose of this document is to provide the motivated person with a variety of ways to make some quick, easy money with very little initial investment. There are hundreds of sources of income lying around your house, or on your property right now. There are hundreds more available for free in your community, if you are willing to talk to people and do some leg-work. You need to have a basic understanding of how to handle your business and how to effectively process items and materials before you start latching onto your swag. You should learn how to identify good targets on your own, before limiting yourself to the 520 items that I have found for free and sold. After reading this book, you will be able to immediately spot good sources of free money… This document’s primary goal is to provide many different avenues for profit, and provide background knowledge that allows the reader to decide which sources of income are right for them.’
Eric divides his teaching into the following categories: START-UP: INITIAL ASSESSMENT, HOW AND WHERE TO SELL, SELLING ON EBAY AND AMAZON, WHERE TO FIND ITEMS TO SELL, FINDING INVENTORY ONLINE, THE BOTTOM LINE ON EBAY BUYING, GARAGE SALES SHOPPING, RESEARCHING, FREE ITEMS TO SELL: OUTDOORS, ORGANIC ITEMS, MAN-MADE ITEMS, SELLING SCRAP METAL: EASIEST MONEY YOU’LL EVER MAKE, GETTING STARTED SELLING SCRAP METAL, SEPARATING SCRAP METALS, A TRIP TO THE SCRAP METAL DEALER, PRECIOUS METALS: FAST, EASY MONEY, WHERE TO FIND GOLD FOR CHEAP, WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR GOLD AND SILVER CONTACTS, NOTES ON PRECIOUS METALS IN COINS!, NOTES ON SATELLITE DISHES AND RECEIVERS, SELLING SCRAP METAL ON EBAY, TO KEEP ASSEMBLED, OR DISASSEMBLE; THAT IS THE QUESTION!, MAXIMIZE PROFITS IN VINTAGE ELECTRONICS, and TREATING YOUR BUSINESS AS A BUSINESS: INCOME TAX ISSUES.
It is all here and with Eric sound judgment and experience, think almost free money. Grady Harp, September 16
