The Numbers: December 4-10, 2022
We had a really good week of sales. They were coming in fast and were relatively high dollar. Lots of fun items that we were amazed sold. Shipping was annoying.
Sometimes we do miss doing the podcast because we always have thoughts about our week selling on eBay. A couple of podcast listeners came into our cafe last week that were fun to meet. They drove through our small town from Philly and just wanted to say hi. We also met up with another local scavenger, Donna, who used to listen. Ultimately we needed the time that we used to spend on the podcast to work on other things.
It’s nice to hear that our podcast was down-to-earth. This is the highest compliment because we hated seeing all the videos that promised quick money and easy riches without doing much work. We just wanted to share our experience that scavenging can be fun…but has many pitfalls, takes a lot of work, and is mostly very unglamorous. The only secret is being consistent, which is easier than it sounds.
Let it be known that our eBay business is still an important part of our financial life. The $3k-$5k that we make each month pays our daily expenses so we can invest in our other adventures. We’re just now starting out on a new project that will hopefully be done by the end of 2023. Our scavenging income gives us the confidence to gamble on ourselves.
Hope you had a good week.
