The Best Week Ever!

A couple weeks ago I had my best week to date. I sold $619.00 worth of junk to net $509. In fact, I made exactly $509 for the entire month of February, while in that one week I made the same amount. Strange, but gratifying experience.

Have you ever heard of reel to reel sound recording tape? I haven't. But it was new, sealed and looked like the old VHS boxes so I knew it must be obsolete. A quick search on my iphone told me that my instincts were correct. I bought all seven of them for $14 and flipped them over the course of two days. Both lots sold to the same buyer.

I just purchased Quickbooks Pro 2012 to help me with accounting and tax season. I had a $75 off coupon for Costco and the software costs around $160.  Quickbooks Pro does not work on a Mac, unfortunately I was supposed to get the Mac supported version which is EXPENSIVE and not carried by Costco. It's not a problem though, because I can easily return the item.


I bought this at the thrift shop for $2 and sold it for $169 overnight! So now I'm wondering if I should hold off on returning it and waiting a year. Maybe that $75 will make me a little extra cash? What would you do?

The last item below is a Snoopy plush doll that was sold by Macy's as a promotional item. This is the second time I've found these, but the first time with the FM Scanner Radio attached. They cost me $2 each. I listed them for $24.99 each and a buyer bought both of them. Fist pump for one shipment and prompt paying buyers!

That was a fun week. I look forward to getting to a point where those types of sales become my norm, instead of being exceptional.

Hope your week is going well. Happy Sales!
