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.


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?
