Ok, so this is really yesterdays haul but I finally got to it today. This was from shopping with my little guy after Kindergarten after a morning spent chasing groceries. So, better late than never… here is the update!
It wasn’t a huge haul but I found some gems…
The big finds of the day were:
The Discovery Channel Viewmaster Projector Telescope – I paid $4.97 and listed it for $125. I am the only FBA seller and the rank is pretty good so I have high hopes for this one.
The 24 inch Care Bear – I created a listing for this guy and put him at $75 (paid $4.97)
Other notable finds:
Spiderman (paid $1.97 – matching other FBA seller at $19.95) and the two Ravensburger Puzzles (paid $1.97 each and listed at $35 each).
Super Grover, Kohls Cares Grinch, and Mickey Sorcerer (paid $1.97 each and listed for $35 each)
Precious Moments Pocket Angel – paid $1.97 and listed at $45.
There were a bunch of duds in this bunch too, unfortunately. I didn’t scan ANYTHING because it’s hard enough to shop with my son let alone try and check Amazon prices…. so I winged it.
The Linksys Ethernet – this is an example when dead tech is just that. Dead. I paid $4.97 and would have lost money listing it so out it went.
The Potato Chip Science Kit – This really cool kit has TONS of seller sand wasn’t going to make me any money. Instead it made my 9 year old daughter very happy to receive it. I paid $2.97 for it.
The Littlest Pet Shop Monkey – This one I probably could have listed but I couldn’t find it anywhere online. My 7 year old daughter loves Littlest Pet Shop and plush so she was thrilled when I let her keep him. I paid $1.97 for it.
The Football kids set – My 5 year old son was eyeing this up from the moment he saw it on the table (and this is why I usually try to list when all the kids are not around and pawing through the goods..lol). I actually could have listed this for about $25 but because I gave the girls something, because I thought he and my husband would have fun playing with it as Football season approaches, and because I’m a softy, I gave it to him. I paid $2.97 for it.
The Boyds Bear – apparently she might be dangerous chemical because Amazon flagged her as Hazmat. I’ll check back in a few days and hopefully it is cleared so I can send her in.
Let’s look at the bottom line!
Total items listed: 13
Total Buy Cost: $34.65
Total Sales Value: $479.94
Total Net Profit: $322.90
Not a bad day and really proves the point that I can’t let my time be completely tied up with less than stellar grocery ROI. With only about 2 hours work I can potentially net $322.90. And with only $35 out of pocket. Especially this time of year because I know that with the holidays so close it won’t take long to sell these items.
I’ll be filling more grocery orders tomorrow but not without the craziness of the past couple of days so I should be able to hit some thrift stores as well and be back with another update.
Have a great night and happy selling!
