As opposed to this guy:
Maybe it’s because it has been over four years since I’ve held a 9-5 job, so Mondays no longer mean going back to the grind. I had a friend (also a SAHM) recently post on Facebook that she actually really likes Mondays – full of opportunity and lists of the things she wants to accomplish before the week is through. It is when Thursday or Friday rolls around and she hasn’t accomplished all that she set out to do that she starts feeling frustrated and grumpy. I thought: Hey! Me too!
Another reason I’m loving Mondays is because it seems to be my best eBay day of the week. Yesterday I had 7 sales, which is a great day for me. ***Breaking news*** As I was typing the above sentence, I just got a notice that I sold my 8th item for today. So, I guess I love Tuesdays too! That’s 15 items in 2 days. I don’t think I sold 15 items all of last week. The last couple weeks were super s-l-o-w for me, so I will enjoy the jump in sales while they last.
Here are some of my favorite recent sales:
|Cruella de Vil Potato Head accessories
$8.09 – shipping (on sale)
This Blues Clues Magnet set quickly had several watchers and sold in a day or two. I think it helped that I had a complete set. I also recently sold a Blues Clues sweatshirt (nothing special about it really, except that there were no others size 4T listed at the time) that sold in less than a day for $14.99 – shipping.
|Blues Clues Magnet Set
$27.99 – shipping
This guy hung around for six months or so before finally selling. He’s more cute and less creepy looking in person.
$21.99 – shipping
I love puppets. I picked up these at a rummage sale a month or so ago for $1.
|Royal Puppets (4)
$14.39 – shipping (on sale)
Not a huge $$ sale, but it more than pays for everything I bought in this Thomas lot. Love that.
|60th Anniversary Thomas w/ Golden Track
$11.99 – shipping
For some reason I thought these hardback I Spy books would be worth more than they really are. I paid $1 per book at a yard sale on Friday. I listed them this morning, and they sold this afternoon.
|I Spy hardback book lot (of 6)
$19.95 – shipping
