all the college text books I see at yard sales. I've bought
many a book at a yard sale for a quarter (that's right, 25

things to buy and sell.

games in bars. I would buy all of his old games
and resell them for a huge profit. As a result, I walked around
constantly with a couple of grand in cash

more money than most of the college graduates I knew!

and resold it that same day for 5
times what I paid!
