Happy Monday!

Hope you had a great weekend!  We have almost a foot of snow here so I have a four day weekend!

So far this month, I’ve sold 43 items for $1228.31.  Of this, about $820 is profit.  Usually, of my sales, about 60% is profit (I figure this by dividing my profit by my sales), but so far I’m closer to the 70% mark.  I have been trying to pass on the $20 items lately and going for $30+ items.  My unlisted inventory is just becoming unmanageable, so I needed to start buying less.  One of my 2016 goals is to significantly downsize the amount of everything I have.

Just wanted to show you a few of my sales from January.

American Eagle Jeans

Paid: $2.50

Sold: $24.99 + $6.35 S&H

Now, normally I would stay away from American Eagle jeans in a size 00, but I kept seeing people talk about selling even the small sizes for a good chunk of change.  I’m glad I made this purchase and will definitely be buying the smaller sizes now, also!

The Year of the Blog

New year, new blog!  flippingthrifty.com finally became available and is now my blog!  I had been waiting for this domain to be available for some time now.

This year I am determined to revamp my eBay selling and my blog.  I’ve definitely neglected both towards the end of 2015.  My profits for 2015 are impressive considering I only went full time for a few months, I unfortunately had a very inaccurate profit calculator towards the beginning of the year, but later on, I discovered easy auction tracker and fell in love with it! It is such a great program to compute your monthly and yearly profits.  In 2015, I profited about $20,000.  Pretty awesome considering I went only about 6 months full time, and by full time I mean about 20 hours a week!

Already 2016 is off to a great start!  I have profited right around $700 for the first three weeks.  I probably would’ve done a lot better had I listed some things, but I’ve been rather lazy these first few weeks.  Starting February, my goal is to list at least 20 items a week -not a lot, but keep in mind I now have a full-time corporate job.  My goal with this blog is to encourage everyone that they can find the time to sell on eBay!  It is easy and not very time consuming.  For me, 20 items a week will compute to less than 2.5 hours of actual listing/picture taking and probably about 3 hours of thrift shopping (which, let’s be honest, isn’t really work!)

In February, I plan to have a more structured blog, with weekly profit breakdowns and sales.  What do you guys want to see more of?
