  • I have about 550 items for sale right now. To some people that might seem like a lot to keep track of (I’m trying to get up to 800 items in the next few months!) but it’s actually pretty easy. Here’s my process:
.
📌I keep track of my merchandise from the moment it arrives home. I use an excel spreadsheet to write a short description of every single individual item. I like to put specific details about the item that will be easy to search for later on (ex: J. Crew silk peplum blouse). I don’t photograph or measure or list until it’s on my spreadsheet! I also put the date I brought the items home, count how many items I sourced, and calculate the average cost of each item.
.
📍Next to the description there is a column called “Tote” - once the item is ready to be inventoried and stored away, I just find empty space in one of my tote bins, fold the item, and put it in! That’s it. I don’t put it into a plastic bag before storing it. (No hate! I know this is popular. I do sometimes need to re-fold or even re-steam the item again before shipping it, but I like not using excess plastic. It also gives me an opportunity to do one last look-over). I then go back to my spreadsheet and update it with the appropriate tote bin number. When the item sells, I update that column to say “SOLD”!
.
📦 When it’s time to find and pack an item that has sold, I do a “ctrl-F” look-up on my spreadsheet. This is where a specific detail comes in handy, ie: peplum - I just search by “peplum” and I can quickly locate the item and the tote bin that it’s in!  It’s so easy!
.
This has been my process since I started selling and it’s worked really well for me. I don’t store things by brand or category, I basically just try and optimize the space in the tote bins as best as possible. I do everything in steps so it’s easy to remember to record everything - I haven’t lost an item yet!
.
So tell me: how do YOU keep organized!?

  • Just took a $100k PayPal working capital loan for a one time fee of $3832. I’ll be using this money to purchase more inventory during the holiday season. Has anyone used PayPal capital loans in the past?

  • The account referenced above did under $30,000 all of last year & is now my second highest grossing account on eBay today. -
-
I just started posting heavily on that account in January of 2018 as sort of an experiment & to distance things a little bit from the "technsports" account I talk about here. -
-
The account above was at $87,000 in May of 2018
-
-
The account above was at $110,000 in September of 2018
-
-
It's November & I've added another $20k in sales month over month in two short months.
-
-
My goal is to get this account to $100,00 in sales per month by this time next year.
-
-
I want to show the growth over the past few months as a sign that if you list it, they will come & that really anybody can do this however big or small you may want with dedication. -
-
It's all a process, everything takes time, but if you build daily you will see it pay off. -
-
As always if anybody has any questions feel free to ask, happy to help if I can.
-
-
Back to listing.

  • Found a box of 41 brand new Cabinet Pulls at the bins. Couldn't  find a brand and I wasn't sure if I should get them but I decided to get out of my comfort zone so I did. Listed them on eBay for a week and then on FB Marketplace. Sold them locally to a lady who is redoing her kitchen and 2 bathrooms. I met her in my driveway for an easy $43 profit.

  • Seven packages going out today (from Saturday eve through this morning). ASP $30, which actually means a couple of big sales, and the rest smaller. And that’s ok! I’m grateful for every sale. I still can’t believe I get to do this. ☺️

someone made an offer on these jeans on eBay. I accepted, literally within one minute of them sending it. After days of no payment, I opened an unpaid item case. Eventually, I closed it for non payment. Last night someone purchased them at asking price and they are on their way to their new home in FRANCE! Cool how things happen sometimes 😎

  • If all we do is work work work what’s the point? Specially in reselling? I guess I get it if you changing the world and sacrificing yourself. But as I reseller you mainly only changing your world and you should have time to live your life. 
However I feel strongly when talking to newer resellers about what it takes to be successful at this. 
I did not wake up with an office, warehouse, employees and trucks full of inventory. I spend almost a year of my life listing from 5 am in to the late hours of the night. It took me a while to build up my stores to 10k active items, to build up relevancy in my space to outsell other resellers with same inventory. To build up capital to buy better merchandise. First year of my reselling I did not take a penny out of the business. Not even for supplies. 
Sure now it’s fairly easy, there are always consistent sales. We average the same about every month like clockwork. We have a solid system. Everything is streamlined. I have employees to do the work for me. But it has not always been this way. I have sacrificed a lot of my time in the past to have freedom in the future. I remember blocks of time where my friends give up on inviting me to join them. Where my kids slept over at my moms regularly (still filling guilty about that) where I had no idea what new reality show was in trend because I did not turn on tv in months. 
But I had a goal. I saw my future and I never had a question in my head if maybe I should not do this. I believe that every successful person (we all have different definition of success, you should measure your achievements by your standards not others) must give up & be uncomfortable before they achieve anything worth being proud of in their life. 
If you have a dream don’t be afraid to sacrifice for it awesome Resellers. It’s worth it.

  • One of our goals as we transitioned from part-time resellers to full-time was to not actually have to work HARDER.  We wanted to focus on having more time to spend together.  We truly enjoy thrifting.  So, we are listing a little more, but most of our progress has been because we are much more knowledgeable and careful about what we choose to buy.
.
.
Our Average Sale Price has risen from $13.62 to $25.47. We've done that while maintaining an average purchase price of less than $1.50. We are currently netting just a hair under 65% including all costs and fees.
.
.
The challenge now is to raise our ASP closer to $40 without decreasing our net percentage. .
.
I believe we can do that by continuing to source better items.  We do that by expanding our knowledge of what we source and listing consistently more profitable items.
.
.
And to think...I started my reselling journey by hawking Bubble Yum to other junior high kids in the 70's. Pack cost 20 cents and I grossed 50.  Even allowing for Mr. Anick's occasional confiscation of my inventory, I netted over $10 a week. :-)
.
.
Here's hoping you realize all your goals today.
