Lots of Stuff

Thought I would catch up on some of the things I've sold in the past few weeks since I last posted.

You should always save your used ink cartridges! I don't know how long I saved these....might have been close to a year. Seems like I really go through the ink though! I had 25 cartridges that were empty. They have never been refilled so they are called "virgin" ink cartridges. Apparently there are people who buy these up to refill them and then I'm assuming they resell them.

25 Virgin HP61 Ink Cartridges
Basically free - Sold for 69.95 - Profit $62.77
I think this is the 2nd set of used floppy discs that I've sold.
Lot of Floppy Discs
$2.00 - Sold for $19.95 - Profit $17.10
This next item was a new book about plants that still had the shrink wrap on it! It was 75 cents. It had a price tag on it of $69. I looked it up and figured I could get at least $50 and I did! Wish I could find more deals like that!
Paid 75 cents - Sold for $50.00 - Profit $42.32
On the shoe front - I can't wait till yard sales next year when I can look for shoes a lot more. I finally figured out that they are worth looking at!
Nike Shox Womens Shoes
Paid $3.00 - Sold for $24.95 - Profit $19.55

Nike Mens Black Cleats
Paid $2.00 - Sold for $25.00 - Profit $19.46
Toys - This plush tiger was only $3.00 - he measured 50 inches from head to end of tail!
Big Plush Tiger
Paid $3.00 - Sold for $27.50 - Profit $19.69
Well, I started this post a few days ago and was going to add more but I better just get it up before too many more days pass! Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam


  1. Hi Pam,
    Wow you have had some nice sales! The profit on that book was awesome.
    Great job with the shoes, I never do well with them, maybe I pick the wrong ones or something.

  2. Thanks Rhonda! I think with Nike shoes you can't go wrong! But, I still have more listed so we'll see what happens! ~~Pam

  3. I have a whole bag full of empty ink cartridges. I'm going to list them!!! thanks for the tip! As far as the floppy discs go, I bought my daughter a very unique journal that was made using them as the cover. It was on Etsy and it's really cute and clever.

    1. I've seen those before! They are cute! Lots of possibilities for them I guess! ~~Pam

  4. Great sales, Pam! I knew empty ink cartridges sold, but I had no idea how muc they sold for.

    1. Thanks Kim! I might have to try them on auction next time...might have gotten a little more. ~~Pam
