A WOMAN has revealed she bagged items worth £ 1.7,000 after purchasing a return pallet of household items.
Taz, who has 1.52 million YouTube subscribers on his ClickForTaz channel, shared his incredible journey in a recent video.
She explained that bagging a pallet was like blindly buying a load of non-catalog products that had been returned and resold at a fraction of the price.
While it might sound like you’d be buying a lot of broken gear, Taz explained that there can be a lot of reasons people flip things.
These include being; defective, the wrong color, in a damaged box, an unwanted gift, not as described in the catalog or having missing parts missing.
It could also just mean that the original buyer has changed their mind.
Taz purchased her pallet from the Marthill International website which is a liquidation warehouse and selected hers in the “household” category.
She said: “I just moved into a new apartment and my place is empty. Now seems like the right time.”
She bought the bundle of mystery products for £ 263.88 + VAT (£ 315) and the products were valued at around £ 1.7,000.
She said: “They make it very clear on the website that these issues haven’t been tested or verified, so you really don’t know what you’re getting.
“It can be absolutely fine or it can be completely broken and that’s a risk you have to take.”
When the cargo arrived, Taz was horrified by the transport. She saw that all of the boxes were marked as broken or damaged and had to take a day to process her bold purchase choice.
She said: “Have you ever had those moments of instant regret? I don’t know what I did.
“That’s why I shouldn’t have access to adult money because when I do, I buy stupid stuff like that. I regret it. No, it’s not good.”
After a while, she started unpacking the transport and found out exactly what she had spent her money on.
The mega-shop included: two shattered mirrors, a mysterious item with conduits that went straight to the “dump” pile, a clothes rail that just needed to be assembled, two broken jars of candles that she thought she could. probably fix and a weird screen splitter that she couldn’t train so also decided to get rid of.
She also found a wire wall hanging with the motivational message: “Today is your day.”

Next, Taz discovered a Sainsbury’s Home rose gold photo frame, an expensive digital photo frame, and four gray storage boxes that were brand new.
She also found a cute gray wall clock that just needed new batteries.
She said, “It works! So this thing works – oh great! It says it doesn’t work but it works! I have a clock and it’s not a bad clock.”
But not everything was so useful, she also found a metal tube, the function of which she could not figure out, so decided to take her to the landfill. with a charge of lampshades.
She said: “They gave me a lot of lampshades. I don’t like lampshades so I’m not going to keep any of that.”
Also in the transport was an orange plant pot broken into two halves, a bundle of hooks, driers for the radiator, a set of bathroom drawers with a small break that could be sorted with a drop of superglue and another – this time intact – mirror.
I think when the pallet first arrived there were so many faulty stickers that said broken I thought it would all be broken and freaked out a bit!
Taz said: “Another mirror, I don’t think this one is broken. We have a mirror! Maybe my luck is changing.
“We went through two mirrors that were completely shattered and now we have this mirror.
“This video took so many turns. I’m completely confused but happy.”
She then unpacked; more storage boxes, another broken candle, a food storage container, a dented bin that “looked like a car crash”, another £ 110 bin that was understood to be broken but just needed batteries, clothes racks, a reindeer candle holder, “a dozen” electric heaters and heated floors, plus two electric blankets.
She also had three inflatable mattresses, all electric, so no need for a foot pump.
The most expensive item on the pallet was a premium inflatable bed that was listed as having a perforation.
Taz said: “I can definitely tell the difference between air mattresses. This one is so nice. This one is really nice. I think this one is better than my bed!
“I don’t see any holes and I can’t hear anything. I can’t hear the air coming out. It passes all the tests.
“I think it’s absolutely fine, but there is a puncture on the label, so I think I’ll leave it overnight.”
Taz not only left the fancy inflatable mattress in place overnight, but she slept on it so she could definitively confirm that it hadn’t deflated.
Reflecting on the shopping adventure, she said: “I think when the pallet first arrived there were so many bad stickers on it that said broken I thought it would all be broken and I a little panicked and thought of the worst! “
Although the value of the total pallet is estimated at £ 1.7,000, Taz added up the ticket price of each of the usable items after the truly broken products were abandoned and found that she had £ 929.95 of booty for his new home.
