Whew! I feel like I got through a lot today (even though there is still a TON of stuff down there to list). I’ve gotten into a good groove and have been able to process everything pretty quickly but I eventually reach my limit of sitting and staring at a computer screen. I started at 9am this morning, took about an hour off for lunch and to watch an episode of Sex in the City (because otherwise what is the point of working from home, right?), and finished up about an hour after lunch. My goal was to keep listing until I had enough going out tomorrow to give me at least $4000 in profit for the week. I hit that and a little over ($4329.06 to be exact) so I am happy with that and will be getting it all boxed and picked up tomorrow afternoon. And I’m even happier that they only split me between four shipments which will definitely make my day tomorrow a little easier!
Anyway, back to today. I worked through a lot and everything you see in the picture above is what I either finally found on Amazon or (as is mostly the case) created a new listing for myself. I even made good use of my new photo backdrop and took pictures as needed.
