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:
