Have you ever been to a yard sale? I love them. I love going to them and I honestly really love having yard sales. After having over a dozen yard sales I wanted to share some yard sale tips so you can make some extra money.
Some call them yard sales, garage sales, tag sales, etc. but if you’re setting stuff out in the yard, driveway or garage – it’s all really the same. They can be a lot of work, but it’s a great way to make extra money and get some stuff out of your house.
I want to share with you some yard sale tips including topics like what to sell, how to price your items, what to do to prepare for your sale, tips for the day of and even some tips for after the sale.
One of our recent yard sales made us $1,065! We did have one higher priced item at $200 that sold, but almost everything else was $1-$3.Continue reading
Keeping track of your eBay inventory is crucial to having a successful business. Whether you have 1,000 items or 10 items, it’s important to make sure you store and organize your ebay inventory in a way that keeps it safe and also makes sense. Not being able to find something you just sold is the worst and making sure you’re organized is key to preventing this.
Today I want to show you how we keep our inventory organized so that we can quickly find sold items and get them shipped out to our customers.
If you didn’t know, my husband and I work from home full time and ebay is our main source of income. We also sell on Poshmark, Mercari and Etsy, but ebay if by far the bulk of our sales so we structure our business and inventory management around what works best for ebay. But as you’ll see this system will really work for pretty much any platform.
Let’s jump in, shall we?Continue reading
One of the best ways to make extra money from home is to sell items online. You could sell items you already have around the house that you’d like to declutter or you could go out and buy items for resale. Either way you need to figure out the best places to list those items online for sale. And wouldn’t it be great if you could find websites to sell online for free?
There is a bit a of a catch though. I’m sure you know that running a website (or app) isn’t free so most aren’t 100% fee free to sell online, but I’ll go over the best options for you below.
Making money on eBay is relatively easy. You find stuff in your house (free!) or at thrift stores and yard sales that you know is worth a little extra money. It’s not hard for me to find something that will sell for a bit more than I can buy it for.
But finding those items that sell for a good amount can be a little trickier. Most items out there aren’t selling for more than $20. So today I’m going to share with you some items that I was able to sell for $50 or more!
Now I have definitely sold way more than this for $50 or more, but since eBay only lets you go back 90 days I was limited to what I could pull up. Most were sold within the last 90 days of me posting this and some I pulled from instagram when I shared my sales.
Let’s get started!
Today I’m going to go over what you need to sell on ebay. As far as necessities to get started, you don’t need much. Everything else can be added once you’re making some money.
If you’re an ebay seller, there are a few things you’re going to need and then there are some things that just make life easier. I’ve compiled a list of everything I recommend for selling on ebay. This list also works for selling on Poshmark, Mercari, Etsy, etc. It’s basically a list for anyone who resells online!
Let’s just jump right in…
If there was one thing I would recommend to people who feel like they don’t have enough time, it would be calendar blocking. Hands down. We’re all busy and we all have the same 24 hours in a day. So how do you make sure you’re spending time on your priorities and meeting your goals?
I resisted scheduling myself for a long time.
I’m a free spirit! I’m an entrepreneur! I work from home for the freedom!
These were all of my excuses for refusing to set any sort of schedule for myself, but once I decided to give Calendar Blocking a try my life changed.
Some people call it calendar blocking, some call it time blocking. It’s really a combination of both, but I personally call it Calendar Blocking because you are actually filling out your calendar with blocks of time.
Simply put it is filling in your calendar with your daily routine, schedule and activities. It doesn’t matter if you’re the CEO of a multimillion dollar corporation or “just” a stay at home parent, we all have stuff to do and blocking out time on our calendars is the way to do it.
WARNING: If you think this sounds too rigid try to stay open minded and give it a try. You can be flexible and move things around as needed, but having your day or week all planned out will ensure you focus on what you need to.
