I Love Ebay!!!

I have been cleaning out some closets and selling stuff on ebay! I just sold six pairs of used Wrangler jeans of my husbands and made $47.00. All of these jeans were in great shape, but I couldn't believe that they sold for so much. I didn't have to go through the hassle and work of having a yard sale and I probably wouldn't have even got a dollar a pair out them.

I put several other items on there too. Mostly kid stuff. I am going to be adding more stuff. I think I should have something on there trying to sale at all times. It is great to be able to make some money and declutter the house at the same time.

My husband also likes when I'm selling and not buying!!!

Do you sale on ebay? If you do let me know what kind of things you sale and if you have any tips on getting the most money from your items. Thank you and I love hearing from my readers!!

Hi Leslie,

Way to go!! Sounds like you are really doing great with Ebay.

I've had pretty good luck with Ebay too -- if the item isn't really heavy and therefore costs a lot to ship.

P.S I made the Strawberry Pretzel dessert you suggested on a post of mine. Oh my goodness; it that ever good. I'm wanting a second piece right now:)

Take Care,

Trixie

Trixie,

Thanks so much for the comment. I had a bit of trouble with the shipping on one of the items. I used the shipping calculator and it only charged the buyer $12.00 but whatever I did I was going to have to pay $24.00. So now I take the item to the post office to make sure I'm doing it right.

I'm glad you tried the dessert and liked it. We really like it too!

Wow, that is great, Leslie!
I have sold a couple of items on Ebay... a computer monitor and a large deep fryer... they both went for a lot more than I could have sold them for at a yard sale or in the classifieds.
Every little bit helps, doesn't it?
My hubby also likes when I sell instead of buy, but I love to buy sewing patterns on ebay (usually you can get them for a buck or two) so most of the time it's the other way around! LOL
