Week Two: Paying for Christmas by Reselling!

I had another week of some great sales that I’ll be sharing with you guys! So far, I’ve bought a few Christmas presents but I’m still in the positive and haven’t gone over what I’ve earned from reselling yet. Luckily, I don’t have many people to buy for and I’ve been really frugal with the spending. 😉 I’ve actually picked up quite a few amazing presents for way less than retail at thrift stores, which I realize sounds pretty awful, but I promise it’s pretty cool. I would have never thought to buy gifts for people at a thrift store, but when you find Lego sets New in Box and American Girl dolls for dollars… how can you not?! I’m either buying them as gifts or buying them to resell, and some of my recipients would be very grateful for these items that I would otherwise not be able to afford (or choose not to pay) retail for. I’ve also picked up some great deals on Amazon, so keep up with the Facebook group if you’re into Amazon deals!

This week I sold on eBay, Amazon, Facebook and a textbook site. I don’t know how some of these people have hundreds and thousands of listings on eBay. I find it so time time consuming to take pictures and write up the listings, but maybe I’m just super slow. Of course, when my phone goes $$CHA-CHINGS$$ it’s totally worth it, but it is tedious, so warning to anyone wanting to get started.

This past week I sold:

Week One: Paying for Christmas by Reselling!

Hey everyone!

This blog has been neglected for too long so I’m going to be posting to it again! It won’t be as frequent as it used to be (How did I post 20 times in one day? Did I really have that much free time and flexibility while being a full-time student? Apparently so!). I’ll be changing the name sometime soon as I graduated college TWO.YEARS.AGO. Nowadays, I hope to just post general (boring) things on the blog and all the deals with deadlines that you need to be quick on your feet with (think Amazon deals and other hot online deals) will be posted on my Facebook group. You have to request to join the group as it is closed, so all your family and friends don’t see everything you post, like, and comment on. It gives you the privacy, especially around Christmas time when you don’t need everyone seeing what you’re buying! Just request to join and I will add you!

As for this post, I wanted to share with you my goal for the rest of 2015. I vowed to only use money that I have earned through reselling (pretty much my favorite hobby, next to thrifting, but luckily they go hand in hand) to purchase gifts for this holiday season. I’m going to post the details of what I buy and sell on the blog to hold myself accountable. Why would I disclose what I’m buying and selling to other people, therefore increasing the competition and making it harder for me? Well, not many people are going to read this (that’s what a 2 year bloggin break does to your stats) and reselling is very difficult job. It involves countless trips to thrift stores, flea markets, estates sales and yard sales. It involves countless hours of research to make sure what you’re buying is actually worth money in its current condition. It involves countless hours of photographing and listing the items for sale. And lastly, there are many grueling hours of packaging and shipping when the item sells. I have been doing this on and off for years. It’s a lot of work, but luckily I love most of it. If you are willing to put in that kind of time, you are welcome to see the items I sell and hopefully it helps you and your family out too. I use many different selling platforms, including eBay, Etsy, Instagram, Facebook and Craigslist.

I will use these earnings to purchase presents for people for Christmas. One note is that if a great deal pops up on an item I’ve been looking for, I will purchase it even if I haven’t earned enough money with hopes that more items will sell and I’ll recover the negative. Saving money is just as important as making money so I won’t pass up a great deal, but I will make sure to have it paid for by Christmas.

Last week I sold:

Lot of 225 Box Tops for Education (Yes, they sell well, and yes, I know they should be donated to schools. We donated thousands of them to our schools in the past, now I can choose what to do with them. They are still going to someone’s schools and not being trashed.)

Sold for: $24.99 Shipped
