My house renovation is coming along slowly but surely...well....it's going more slowly than surely! Anyway, I need to clean out my cookbook cupboard. I have way too many that I never even look at. Anymore, if I want a recipe I google it....seems so much faster! After reading Dude's blog post about his good sale with this cookbook I remembered I had found one at a yard sale a couple of years ago. It was in great shape when I bought it but I think after being shoved in my cupboard it got just a little bit rough around the edges! These cookbooks go for anywhere between $20-$50 with one even going for $89.99 recently! Since mine had a little bit of roughness on the spine and it also had one page with a small tear that I had taped I thought I would just put it at "Buy it Now" for $39.95 w/free shipping. It sold within a few hours. Then I second guess myself and wonder if I could have gotten a bit more! Oh well, it's money in our pocket now!
Paid $1.00 - Sold for $39.95 w/free shipping - Profit $30.00
Free (gift from my sister...thanks Naomi!)
Sold for $10.00 - Profit $7.66
Yesterday my goal was to list at least $200 worth of new stuff and I did it! I listed $212.75 minimum...might be a bit more if a couple of items I put at auction go for more. I am going to try really hard to list $200 worth every day this month. I would love to (need to) sell $100 worth every day so I figure I need to at least twice that much...probably need to list $500 worth a day to get $100/day but I don't have that much inventory, or at least my inventory isn't worth that much! So yesterday I sold 2 items totaling $49.95 so I didn't make it but hopefully it will all even out. My husband did shovel snow for 3 different places (we had a big snow storm...got 5 inches at least!) and he made $180 so together we made $229.95 so I will figure that together we made enough for 2 days of my goal! :) I'm hoping I can sell some jars real soon!
Well, I better be getting busy if I'm going to list another $200 worth....I've only gotten $22 worth listed so far!
Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam
