eBay - I Have Missed You

18 comments
I know it's been a while since my last post. You know the old saying when it rains it pours! Well, that could not be more true in our situation. We had a bit of a flood in our home just before the holidays, and it has taken us months to restore. All the while I have still been doing well selling on eBay. My deepest apologies to all my loyal followers.

eBay - Stock Up

1 comments
Today I went to Toys "R" Us to stock up on the seasons hot item, "squinkies." Naturally, while shopping my son has to use the restroom. Sometimes I wonder if anyone else can shop with their children and not visit the porcellian express. However, because of his over demanding need for the restroom we walked past a sale rack loaded with Halloween costumes marked 90% off. I was so excited, I couldn't get him to finish fast enough. I purchased many of them for only $1.99 and $2.99. These will be great sellers in September. With that said if anyone has a Toys "R" Us near by you should pay the store a visit and stock up. Go eBay!

eBay - List It Once, Not Twice

2 comments
I was on eBay the other day doing a search for an item I was about to list that I never sold before. I notice this item was listed 3 or 4 times by the same seller. I wondered to myself what advantage they had by doing this. Then I looked at the sellers feedback score and it was a low number. Then it clicked that they had no idea as to what they were doing. I thought I would share this with you because I'm sure that many of you just starting on eBay might make the same mistake.

When you have more than one of the same item you can list it once and put in the listing that you have (x) quantity available. This way when you sell one your listing will still be there. If someone wants to purchase more than one, the rest will still be listed. There is no point in paying eBay a listing fee more than once for the same item listed at the same time. You will find entering the quantity will not only save you time, but also money. Go eBay!

eBay - Look Through The Racks

0 comments
I know I have told you all this before, but it is so important I thought I would share it again just to make sure all you Moms are doing this. KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN FOR DEALS.

I was in CVS Pharmacy of all places picking up a prescription. As I was walking out of the store I thought I would take the long way and cruise by the summer clearance rack. I know, none of you are surprised by this. Any time you are in any store you should at least give the sale rack a blink of your time. At CVS I found back packs for $.90 usually $14.99. Those will sell in August and September for a minimum of $10.00 each. I bought 3 so I figure I just made about $25.00 after fees. I also found these Kung Zhu Collector Cases which looked pretty cool, but I knew nothing about. They retailed for $12.99 and they were $.90 each. I purchased 11 of these. Not sure what they will sell for, but they were a cheap investment. Let's assume they sell for $9.00 each. After fees I will have made about $80.00. Let's see I didn't go out of my way, spend much money or invest a whole lot of time and I will make at least $100.00, all because my daughter needed allergy medicine and I passed the clearance rack. Go eBay!
