On a dog walk, I saw a sweet rocking chair on the sidewalk by a garbage heap.  I grabbed it and carried it home. - <5 minutes

After DW told me, "that thing is hideous and when I'm on it my feet can't touch the ground," I took photos and put an ad on Craigslist. - <5 minutes

Received an email the following morning saying, "That is a beautiful rocker!"  We emailed back and forth with details and a very tall man picked it up today. - ~5 minutes

Overall, ~15 minutes of investment and I made $45 from a thrown-away rocker.

Well done!

I may need to try this.  I see "junk" left at the curb all the time in our neighborhood.
