First Post! Welcome To The Blog!

Hey everyone! Welcome to my blog!

   A Little About Me: I am a money hungry teenage girl that has been actively searching for ways to  make money at home to help pay for a car, and to put myself through college!

 I started out by taking surveys to earn cash, and help pay for some Christmas gifts, but that's just SO time consuming. Then I tried sites that paid you for searching the web.. Now that takes FOREVER! Nothing seemed to be working for me, until I came across eBay..
The eBay addiction first started when I found some old Nintendo games in my grandmas closet. I remembered playing Nintendo all the time when I was younger, but since all the grand kids were growing up, there wasn't anyone there to play the games anymore. So I thought I would see what I could sell them for on eBay, and boy was I surprised! I quickly bagged the games up, took them home, and got to work! That night, I listed the 30+ games on eBay at auction. Instantly, I was getting messages from buyers asking me to set a buy it now price on the auction, but I held out until the end of the 7 days. I watched the price increase every day. It was SO exciting! I stayed home the last night to see how the auction would play out, and within the last few minutes, the games sold for over $150! That was the day I got hooked on the thrill of finding and selling items on eBay!
The eBay buzz lasted about 3 or 4 months before I got so busy with school and working around the house that I just gave up on it. But now, as I'm getting older, I've realized I need to get out and apply for a job.. Maybe start working part time to help pay for a car and put myself through college.. But who wants to do that? I know its an essential part of life, but why couldn't I have a job selling on eBay? The thrill of selling items for big bucks on eBay is a lot more fun than taking orders at McDonalds. So four months ago I logged back into my eBay account. I started out by getting rid of some things around the house and after seeing the amount of money I was making, I had to find more things to sell! Once again eBay had me hooked.. I was selling things for friends and family, keeping a percentage of the profit, but I needed some inventory of my own. That's when the thrift shopping began. I researched the best sellers on eBay and the brands to look for when shopping, and then I went to Goodwill.. An eBay sellers heaven. The store full of name brand clothing, shoes, glassware, and just about anything you can imagine, for dirt cheap prices! The Goodwill has became my absolute favorite place to source items to sell on eBay.
I will be posting eBay sale updates, and thrift store/yard sale hauls! I hope you all enjoy the blog I'm starting! Thanks for reading!

Here is a link to my eBay store if you would like to check it out. :)
