Update 2/11-3/1

Hey everyone! I'm so sorry once again for not posting regularly. Things have been pretty crazy around here the past few weeks and I can never find the time to sit down and blog. I love sharing my eBay life with y'all and I'm sorry that I've let it slip and put my updates on the back burner. But! That being said, I plan on updating you today on a few things and then share some of my best sales and profits from February! 

Yesterday was my 18th birthday, so now that I'm at the required age, I was able to put my eBay account in MY name! I was so excited! 

Check it out! My names on the packages now! 

To celebrate my birthday, my fantastic boyfriend took me to the Dixie Stampede! If you've never been, I would highly recommend going! It's a blast for all ages! 

I've not done any listing this week whatsoever. I'm going to try to get about 20 new listings up today, before I go to the Goodwill Outlet tomorrow. I'm down to about 150 active listings because I'm stingy like that and don't want to pay for my insertion fees. Lol! I have saved thousands of dollars waiting for promotions so that I can re-list my old items for free. It's not the best thing for everyone, but it works for me. If I can ever get a promo, I'll have close to 700 active listings. That's the most I've ever had! 1,000 is right around the corner! 

I told my aunt I'd share her in this HIDEOUS fur coat the last time we went shopping! Would you have bought this?? It was only $6! ;) LOL! On this trip, I spent $90. It was crazy. I've not spent that much at the regular goodwill in ages! But I did make it all back that night! I sold this Anthropologie sweater on poshmark within a couple hours of listing it. I like it when I make all my money back in one night! 

February sales were about average or Maybe even a little better than usual. I had over $1,000 in profit after my shipping costs (I offer free shipping mostly now), eBay fees, and PayPal fees, but after all of the expenses I had this month, (lots of goodwill shopping), I cleared a little over $800 for the month. Not too bad! My goal is to make ATLEAST minimum wage, so I'm happy with that number. I'm hoping to grow it over the next few months, before college starts officially this fall. 

Hopefully I can continue selling on eBay when classes start, but it may be too much for me to be able to continue at this scale. We will see.. Highschool graduation is only 2 months away! Woo-hoo! I can't wait to graduate and begin the college life. I'm super excited about the field I've chosen to go into and can't wait to see what's in store for me there. 

I may try and post some of my best sales from February a little later, but for now, I best go and package up a few things before the mail runs! 
Thanks for reading everyone and for putting up with my sporadic posting! :)

  5. what are you going to take in college ?

    1. I'm going into the Physical Therapy program :)

  6. Love your post!! I think if anyone is capable of working and doing college at the same time, it's you. Your sweater resale is amazing!
