Being a fan of FREE STUFF, thought I would investigate another material that is free for the taking. Cardboard. Every store has cardboard, plus, on craigslist there are about 10 listing a day for moving boxes. So how can you make money with this free material? With a little time/transportation, and creativity you too can utilize these free materials to make money.
