We're not keeping the doors open 200 bucks at a time. A storage buyer is looking at a storage box he bought. He and his wife pull a table out and he says: We'll get at least 200 bucks for it. Then his wife says: We have a couple of those. Then he replies: We're not keeping the doors open 200 bucks at a time. What does that last remark mean? Thank you so very much!

It sounds a little greedy to me! I think that 'Keeping the doors open' refers to keeping their business going. The suggestion is that they need a bigger 'prize' than just occasional $200 sales to keep in business.
