The eBay Blues

Is it just me and the garbage awesome stuff I'm trying to sell, or has it been a painfully slow couple of weeks on eBay?

I mean, some of my stuff is selling, but there's nothing more disheartening than when you go to All Selling on eBay and see:

Lots of my stuff is Buy It Now and there's a couple of watchers...wait, while we're on the topic...I cannot stand having watchers in BIN stuff. JUST BUY IT. BUY MY STUFF. It's awesome.

Buy it.


Anyway, since I have nothing exciting to report, I will show you my super awesome bookkeeping skills.
Take that Excel. I hate Excel and I won't use it unless I have to (which is almost never). All the stuff that doesn't have an "$ spent" is stuff that I've either dug out of closets, or my mom has given me to sell.

Hope your auctions are going better than mine!


  1. I love your "spreadsheet". It's so simple & makes sense for you. Mine looks pretty similar!

  2. I have heard and read on all the blogs and reselling sites I visit
    that sales will start booming again once summer is over.
    That is how it was for me too when I had my brick and mortar consignment shop several years ago.

  3. I don't care for Excel either, so I married an accountant who LOVES making spreadsheets. At the beginning of the year, he was on me about keeping track of my sales to report (sometimes his career cramps my style), so I told him what I wanted and he made me a nice simple spreadsheet to use. It auto calculates just about everything so I can immediately see my profit. Not figuring it out or writing.
