Another quick post! Here are my October numbers. Last year, October was my best month. This year– not so much!
I took a week off during the girls’ fall break from preschool, and then I was really slow to get back on track the next week. The dearth of new inventory was reflected in my sales. If there’s one thing I know about eBay, it’s that you have to keep feeding the beast if you want to keep seeing results. I try not to keep much unlisted inventory on hand, since I don’t have a lot of storage space, but when I miss a week of shopping, I don’t have anything to list!
Number of items sold: 48
Average selling price: $28.90
Total profit: $775.73
And, because someone usually asks: Click here for my review of Easy Auctions Tracker, the spreadsheet I use to keep up with my income/expenses.
Here’s to hoping I can turn things around during the rest of the year! We’re planning to buy our first house early next year, so every little penny I can save will help, I’m sure! From everything I hear, there are always so many extra expenses when you buy a house. I’d love to have a nice big cushion to take care of those surprises!
