So my fellow Thrifty Mommas ( and Pappas). I thought I would share a glimpse into my EBay listing for the week. My hope is to show you that you do not have to spend a huge amount if time to make enough extra money to help you and your family with your financial goals. I'm just a mom who does this while her youngest is in preschool there are many more sellers making much more but you do not have to invest a ton of time to see a nice profit.
I spend about 5-6 hours a week right now on Ebay between shipping, sourcing and listing. In an average week I profit around $175-225 after fees, costs of goods and shipping. It's not much but its pretty good considering the amount if time I put in is so low ( I'm not counting the time and money I put / get out if Anazon for the purposes of this post).
The below photo is everything I photographed today. About half of it is listed and the other half will get listed when I have some spare moments thus week. I do all my photos and listing on my iPhone so it's super easy to put up a listing during nap time or while I'm waiting for a load of laundry to finish.
This is a big tie and book week. The shoes are all profit as they were my daughters. I think I spent under $25 for everything you see here and the Wall-e alone should grab around $80.
Anyway my point is if you can eek out a little time Ebay is a great way to make more money per hour than you would likely make at most part time jobs. Plus you make your own hours.
