Week Five & Six: Paying for Christmas by Reselling!

This is my final “Paying for Christmas” post as today I shipped my last packages of the 2015 Christmas season! People were really waiting until the last minute for gifts… I would never do that 😉

I had some great luck these past two weeks! I finally sold a high dollar item I’ve had sitting around for awhile and I got rid of a lot of items, some that I just purchased! I also had great luck with the lot of Littlest Pet Shops I bought for $30. If you remember from last time, I’m just saying each piece costs me $2, even though there were WAY more than 15 items in the box, most pieces didn’t have much value. I love making money, what can I say?! Unfortunately, I still have a lot of items I didn’t have time to list before Christmas. It was my goal to get them all listed, but time always gets away (especially when you’re working full time and planning a wedding!) and I kept buying more stuff to sell! So I’ll continue listing and selling in my free time. It’s a hobby I enjoy, most of the time 😉 I’m very happy with everything I’ve managed to accomplish these last few weeks of 2015. I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep posting my sales after Christmas, but it’s honestly a great motivation to get things listed sometimes! Catch me on the Facebook group if you’re into online deals and frugal chit chat! I am happy to say that my 6 weeks of eBay sales have paid for all my Christmas presents!

*Students, did you know you can upload your notes and study guides and people will buy them? Did you know they’ll buy them 2+ years after you graduate? Neither did I! But a few times a year I get a few bucks in my Paypal, especially during exam season! I guess I won’t ever take them down! Looking back, I wish I would have uploaded a bunch more!

That makes this week’s net profit (this is after Paypal fees, eBay fees, and all other expenses): $423.63
Week Two’s profit: $137.41
Week One’s profit: $105
Week Three’s profit: $82.89
Week Four’s profit: $79.25

Total profit: $838.18
