We have been so broke for many months. I don't like not being able to care for my family because of lack of $$. My husband works full time at Lowe's, and I stay home and try to make money babysitting and selling eggs on ebay and anything else I can think of. Being poor is a lot of work! Anyway, the point: When we bought our house from my mom, we only bought it for about $115, 000 but comparable homes are selling for about $450,000 here. I keep trying to convince my DH that we should use our equity to invest in SOMETHING. A business or real estate or SOMETHING. I enjoy being self-employed, especially if I were actually making money. I keep thinking about buying SOMETHING wholesale to sell on ebay. So, I thought I'd ask the most knowledgeable people on the planet (hehe) and see what they would do? Whatcha think?
