S.A. Make Money Challenge eBay

July 20th, 2014 at 12:37 pm

I have sold 27 items for $1291.61. Three weeks of the month gone as of today. I have not been listing much as I have been doing other things. My sister and youngest son are going to start helping me find items, list and ship. We will split the profits 3 ways. I think if we all three work at it we can make some serious money.

I'd like to use my part of the money to put back into the small community in which I live. The ladies group I belong to would like to do things for the children that live there. This is a very poor community. We went Christmas caroling year before last and I was shocked at the state of the homes in which we visited. Windows knocked out, holes in the walls and floors. It truly was heart breaking. When I no longer have to worry about my Father I plan to get very involved with the community and also visit the hospital and nursing home in another nearby small town.

Are there very many very poor people in the community that you live in? When I see how bad some people truly have it I realize how blessed I've always been. Even at my very poorest, which I thought was pretty poor, I was very blessed compared to the majority in the little town that I live closest to.

    Great job on the eBay challenge! I have only listed and sold one item. I might put some items up tonight, but there is a period of time where I will be out of town, and that can make it more difficult to be a good seller, if I'm not available.

    I know there are some poor in our town, but likely not as destitute as you describe.

    CCF you can put your eBay account on vacation and change your shipping/handling times to prevent any problems if you want your item to be on sale while you are away. On the fashion board in the eBay community tabs I've seen other sellers say that they do this when they go away for even a week. Good luck with your sales. How has Craigslist been going? What all have you so sold so far this month?

    What items do you sell on eBay and Craigslist? Where do you find the items? I only sell when I am replacing something in my home or no longer need something that I own. I don't have enough stuff to sell otherwise.
