Just saying - fabric is the easiest to ship - no worries on breakage, we bought a roll of super light-weight desk trashcan liners, stuffed the fabric item in the bag to give a bit of protection from moisture, and used the free priority mail boxes - no need for any other shipping material. Bet you could generate a few quick thousand/year if you felt like it. Would also become expert on most highly desired brands and such and end up with some amazing shirts for yourself...

When I explained this concept to my kid prospective partner, her reaction was "And where would you ever have to wear an aloha shirt?!?"

One or more of us family Nords is at Goodwill every week or two, so this would fit right into our routine. And it's practically free money, too, but for what? Charity? I'm going to have to think about this a little more and then start another thread on "turning it off when it no longer serves a purpose".


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
