I made $23.66 profit today. Not a whole lot. BUT, if you take that and multiply it by 30 days, that's $709.80. That's grocery money for our family of 7 for a month! In fact, since my husband has been out of work, that's more than one months worth of groceries. We've been a LOT more careful with our money since he's been out of work. So like I've said before, every little bit helps! I would love to find things that would be worth more money but that takes time, which I don't have a lot of, and it also would take more money!
I am going out to buy more jars tomorrow. I had two calls about an ad that I put in our electricity's newspaper. It's a free ad and I just say that I'm looking for the blue canning jars and will pay $1.00 each for them! One lady has 27 jars and another has 170! I am hoping that I sell some lots of jars real soon! I hate to pay out that much money but I know that I will sell them......eventually!
Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam


  1. If you're like me, you look back on when you had a lot of money coming in and you want to bonk yourself in the head because of how much money you spent. Suddenly, when that income is gone, you start to spend less because you have no choice. If only we had spent less all along, we'd have tons of money in the bank right now. And yes, those small sales add up. There are sellers on ebay that make their money in small profits, but high volume sales. It all adds up. Plus if the items are easy and cheap to ship, it's even better. :)

    1. Yes, I'd really like to bonk ourselves! We could be a lot better off if we'd have just done things a little bit differently. I'm hoping we're learning our lesson! I don't ever want to be in this predicament again! Thanks for your comment! ~~Pam

  2. You're right. Every little bit does help. Those are great sales with great profit margins, and I bet it really didn't take too much time to photograph and list those items. That means more time with your family which is priceless :)

    1. Thanks for your comment! Yes, those items weren't too difficult to list or ship! Love the easy ship items! ~~Pam

  3. It all adds up quicker then you think. And where else can you turn a dollar into a $6.00 profit?
