Have you ever felt that you’re behind the times in technology? I certainly do every time I see my three-year-old play with my wife’s iPad. He understands how to download new apps and play games…he uses it like he was born with it – which is more than I can say for myself!
There is a lot of technology available that can help a garage sale junky in their quest for the next best find. The trick is knowing how to use it.
Have you ever seen someone pull out their smart phone and wave it across a book or some other boxed item? They’re most likely using a smart phone app that reads the barcodes. A number of these apps can tell you what that particlar item is selling for on either eBay, Amazon or a range of other competitive websites.
This is a fantastic way to decide if it’s cheaper to buy the item online. It can also help a shopper decide if they can turn around and re-sell the item for a significant profit. Smartphone Apps prevent you from having to be an expert on every single item you come across. All you need is to be an expert on the up and coming technology.
So the next time you go to a garage sale, take a minute to download one of the many free barcode scanner apps and you too can be a high tech garage sale millionaire that’s grasped the technology of the 21st century.
Good luck and happy hunting!
