I lost something very important. Have you seen it? I’m very worried. It’s been missing for a while. I’ve lost my eBay sales. I can’t seem to sell anything and I’m very worried. OK so I might be slightly to blame for sales being gone. I just haven’t been listing the way I should. But I’m determined to do better. And to make myself accountable I’m going to make, and share my goals.
eBay Goals for March:
1. List at least 14 new items a week. That breaks down to 2 items per day. I was aiming for 5 per day but I’m just too busy for that most days so I’m being easier on myself and saying 2 per day.
2. Go thru my existing inventory and list or purge. I really don’t need to do anymore shopping but I know I will. My goal this month is to go thru everything I already have and get organized.
3. Sell $600.00 in March. Not a big goal but that is a lot of money for me. Especially when I do this very part time.
Just 3 little goals. I can do it. I am trying to make March the month of change for myself. Like a personal spring cleaning. I think I really need it. So on top of eBay goals I also have a goal to loose 4 pounds this month, and (this is a big one for me) cut out most of my frivolously spending and put more money into my emergency fund. Let me tell you if I had an emergency right now I would be out of luck. I might have enough to cover an emergency pack of gum.
I’m really motivated to do well. Today I brown bagged it to work so I saved about $7.00 already. And on my eBay front I’ve sold 3 items so far this month totaling $60.00.
This beauty sold for $25.00 at auction. Buyer paid for shipping. I paid $1.29 for her on February 22nd. I was really hoping I would get more but auction ended with only one bid. She is kinda creepy and not in the best condition so I’m happy I got one bid.
This weekend all my purchases came from a single yard sale. We filled up a big, black garbage bag with toys and clothes for $24.00. I came home and listed several items including Pooh. He sold the same day. I probably under priced him at $20.00 since he was new with tags but plush is bulky and takes up more room to store so I priced my lowest. I split the cost of the bag with my mom so I’m already making a profit.
The third item I sold was a mens shirt for $15.00. I had an oops moment on this item. I meant to list if for more but I only paid $1.25 for it so still making plenty of profit.
This month I will be the little engine that could “I think I can, I think I can”.
