Flippin’ Friday – Pet Safe Edition

A while back I took my nephew to the Tacoma Pierce County Humane Society to drop off a donation of towels I collected from friends, family, and my Buy Nothing group. While there I noticed they have a small section that is donated goods that they are selling to support the program.

I took note of a PetSafe programmable automatic pet feeder. It was tagged for $10. This sucker, you guys, this sucker was in NEW condition. I knew they retailed for far more than that.



I bought it, and explained what I was doing with my nephew. Who then got SO EXCITED about it and told me we would sell it and give the profit back to the humane society.

::Sigh:

Yes, child. We will donate the profits to the humane society.

Alright! We could work with this. I initially listed this for $35. I always assume people will talk me down and I hoped for $25. It did not sell. I listed it on both Facebook and Offerup. I believe it took almost 4 months to sell. Not ideal, but I was not doing meetups or anything for weeks after my heart surgery, so that explains some of it. But, sell it did! Last month I sold it for $20. Not what I wanted, but it was time to go.

I have an envelope here with a $10 bill in it and when covid-19 has receded, my nephew and I will go together and make the donation.

What have you flipped lately?
