Ebay The Garage Sale of the 21st Century


I am loving Ebay!... The Internet garage sale of the 21st century..who knew there were people out there that love my kids outgrown clothes... My outgrown clothes... I take a pretty picture, load it up, start with an inexpensive price, and bam I have a watcher..then it's two watchers and then a bid comes up...then two bids... Okay, I keep coming back to my computer to check for bids and watchers.. I don't want to go to sleep at night..because I am addicted... I want more watchers and more bidders...it's like caffeine to a coffee addict....
My husband likes to switch out his wardrobe. He loves Tommy Bahama...Shirts, pants, socks, boxers, and shoes... When he tires of some of his clothes, I list it on Ebay and then he buys more... It's crazy, he can find brand new with tags Tommy Bahama shirts for $10 normally $125 or more...wow...this addiction has become more fun...
Now I have discovered what a great deal I can get on my DVD collection. I sell movies I am bored with and buy more... I have become a Gilmore Girl fan, One Tree Hill, Sex and the City, Supernatural, Felicity, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan....why you may ask... Cuz I got the entire series on DVD for practically free.. I tell ya... free!!! The great thing is when I tire of my series...I sell them and get my money back...and sometimes more..
I go through my house trying to figure out what I can sell this week... Hmm how about the my kids' CD collection....shhh don't tell them!

I'm hooked on it as well. I've got an entire full size bed of items that I've found in the house that we no longer need/use. I need to get busy taking some pics and listing again. When my husband became disabled and we went from two incomes down to one, E-Bay saved us!

It's really easy to do. Get ideas from other people selling the items you want to sell. Pay attention to how they display it..starting prices..selling prices. Have fun.
