March was a good month for me eBay-wise, even being gone for an entire week over Spring Break. I met my listing goal again this month (and now have over 800 listings in my store, an all-time high). I’ve consistently been selling over 100 items per month, and making my monetary goal of $50+/day. I do want to eventually get up to 1000 listings in my store, and then just maintain that level. BUT I think it’s finally (past) time to also focus some of my attention on Amazon. So, my goal is to send two shipments into FBA by the end of the month. I’ve never used FBA before, so I’m feeling intimidated by it. But, I know that if I do it once, it will be so much easier to do it again and again. And I’m hoping for a little positive peer pressure, because now I will have to report back at the end of the month as to what I’ve actually accomplished.
On the eBay front, I am planning to get at least 150 new listings up.

My 6yo has a pair of Keens he l-o-v-e-s, and I thought about saving these for him. But, the size is still a few years away. I decided to price them a bit higher than anything else listed to make it worth giving them up.

My oldest used to be obsessed with Thomas, but he’s well past that phase now. I held onto the trains for my youngest, but he completely skipped the train phase and moved directly on to super heroes and Star Wars (to keep up with big brother). So, kind of sadly, I’ve started listing a few.
