Sales Update 4/15-4/26

Hey everyone! I'm back with yet another sales update!

I'm so so sorry I'm not staying on schedule with my blogging. Only 2 more weeks til school is out, so hopefully then I can get more regular with my posting. 

Everyone lately has been talking about how slow their sales have been this month. Mine have been BOOMING! I have had at least one sale almost every day! I had 4 sales just yesterday! 

I think the increased sales over the last few days have been because... I HIT 500 LISTINGS! WOO HOO! I have been listing like crazy trying to hit that number and I have made it! (Sort of). I'm back down to 495 items now since I've sold so much. I will be taking advantage of this 1,000 free fixed price listing promo that ends today as soon as I get my English 102 essay finished. Hopefully I can get back over 500 again! 

Here's what sold! 
Total sales since my last post: 25
Total amount (before fees): $289.37 

3 Tubes of 350 Covergirl Makeup - $7.95 each F/S

Awful story about this makeup... I sold a tube of 340 makeup two weeks ago, went into my eBay room looking for it, and I couldn't find that number. I was COMPLETELY out! EBay was showing I had 14 left in stock. WHATTT??!?  I had to cancel that transaction and refund immediately. Then afterwards I went into each makeup listing and revised the quantity I had in stock because they were all out of whack by LARGE quantities! I also found 3 kinds of makeup that weren't even listed! So that is all fixed now thankfully! 

Woo hoo for microwave plates! I love love love these! They are super easy to list and ship! This one sold for $13.33 +shipping. I paid probably $1-$2. 

I sold a pair of Ann Taylor jeans that have been listed FOR-EVER! They sold for $15 +shipping. I probably paid around $3. 

I had this Dressbarn cardigan listed since last summer. I paid $0.25 for it, and it sold finally for a best offer of $15.99 +shipping. 

I LOVE finding stamps! They're just so cute! I am a very crafty person, as are most people in my family, so I figured if this didn't sell it would get some use anyways! I bought 3 stamps for $2, and this one sold for $8 +F/S. 

I bought this Nordicware pan in Indiana for $2 in Indiana, it sold for $15 +Shipping. 

This Monopoly themed neck tie came from the Goodwill Outlet, so I didn't pay much. It sold for $15 +shipping. 

My wonderful aunt picked me up a lot of Littlest Petshop items last week for $10! If you aren't knowledgeable on these items, be sure and look them up on eBay right now! Some of these items go for a ton! I used to play with these when I was little, but sadly, all my pets got donated. :( They would be worth a pretty penny now! This Talent Show Stage sold for $6 +shipping. I had two of these, and they both sold within a day. The other one I am still waiting for payment. A UPI case is open for that one since they have not paid in 2 days. 

I ALWAYS pick up Jansport backpacks if the price is right! This pack sold for $25 +shipping to Israel! Anyone ever shipped there before?! I paid $4.  

This is the last of the belt buckles I bought last summer. I paid $1.33 for this one. It sold for $14.95 +Shipping. 

My sister found this build a bear workshop outfit at the Goodwill Outlet, it sold for $10 +shipping. The clothes tend to sell better than the bears. 

Here's another backpack! I paid $3 for this one, it sold for $20 +shipping. 

You all know I always buy unique shower curtain hooks! These sold for $10 +shipping. 

Finally, I sold this Lauren Ralph Lauren sweater vest for $19.95 +shipping. I paid $5 at the Goodwill. 

That's all for me guys! I hope you are all having a GREAT week like I am! I'll be back soon with another post! 
Thanks for reading!

Sales Update 3/25-4/14/15

 I am SO, SO sorry that I've been negligent towards my blogging lately! Finals week in college is slowly creeping up on me, so I'm desperately trying to stay caught up with my school work.

My goal was to list 5 items every day this month.
As of today I should have 70 items listed.

I've listed 27...

I'm hoping that as soon as class is over, I can concentrate more on eBay instead of everything else in the world,  and I can get my numbers up.

But anyways! Away from my procrastinating!
Here's the highlights of the 29 items I've sold since my last sales update:

I picked up this tea jar last summer for a dollar. It sold for $9.95 +$18.95 shipping!

I almost always pick up Wilton cake pans. This one sold for $14.99 +free shipping.

I picked these John Deere boots up on my Indiana trip for $2. I didn't notice the torn place on the top of the boots until I got home, but I still flipped them for $15 +shipping.

You all may have saw me talk about this item in my YouTube video! I picked this Garmin Forerunner up at the Goodwill in Indiana for $4. It sold for a best offer of $75 +shipping.
This Design a Day briefcase came from the Goodwill Outlet. I just now got it listed and it sold for $20 +shipping.

I bought a load of new with tags clothing a while back at a yardsale for $3 a piece. This shirt sold for $19.95 +free shipping.

I always pick up text books if they are newer. Like 2013-2015 editions. This one I paid $0.50 for, and I think I sold it for a best offer of $65 +shipping.

Here's another tie from the Goodwill Outlet! It was new with the tags! It sold for $15 +Shipping!

This Thirty-One tri-fold organizer was picked up at the Goodwill Outlet as well. It sold for a best offer of $17.50 +Free shipping.

Here's an AWESOME score! I mentioned in my YouTube video that I wanted to try out selling perfumes. I picked up this bottle at a local thrift shop. It sold within a day for a best offer of $37 +Shipping! Already got positive feedback too! YAY! I only paid FIFTY CENTS!!

I hope you all have enjoyed my scattered post today! I'll try and get back on schedule as soon as college slows down and the semester ends!

Thanks for reading everyone!

BIG Debate

I'm sure we've all seen the debate over the White and Gold/Blue and Black dress all over the news. I'm having a somewhat similar problem.. I have this shirt to list, and I'm not sure if it's Purple and White or Burgundy and Light Blue/White. Opinions NEEDED!
