The week in review – November 10th – 14th

I thought it would be fun to take a look at how I did this week overall – just the numbers. So, here goes!

Monday:

28 items listed – inventory cost of $81.16 – net profit of $583.92.
Time spent working: 6 hours.

Tuesday:

43 items listed – inventory cost of $123.79 – net profit of $848.08.
Time spent working: 7.5 hours.

Wednesday:

38 items listed – inventory cost of $83.07 – net profit of $806.29.
Time spent working: 5 hours.

Thursday:

30 items listed – inventory cost of $74.10 – net profit of $652.81.
Time spent working: 6 hours.

Friday:

31 items listed – inventory cost of $101.63 – net profit of $600.25.
Time spent working: 5.5 hours.

All told, I added 170 thrifted items to my inventory this week, at a cost of $463.75, for a potential net profit of $3,491.35 once everything sells. I worked (shopping, prep, listing, and boxing) approximately 30 hours (this estimate includes drive time, eating lunch, and poking around the stores for non business items so that is why I say approximately).

My goal is to get my potential net profit to at least $100 an hour and this week I came in just over at $116.37. And I got LOTS of goodies for us personally that were essentially free because of the $5 off coupon I used at every store and every day. Whoot whoot!!!

I’ll be back next week and aiming for another 5 days straight of thrifting and shipping off to Amazon. Once Black Friday arrives the fun really starts and the sales should kick up yet another notch. I want to be ready to cash in!

  1. Stacy,

    Those numbers are fantastic! Thanks for putting things into perspective with this post. You definitely can’t deny the ROI when it comes to thrifted items. Even though I’ve changed my focus for sourcing during Q4, I still carve out a little time for thrifting because it helps my margins.
