Trash to Cash Wednesday

The Big Challenge has now ended but since I've decided to keep selling on ebay and craigslist I thought I'd dedicate Wednesday's to show you what trash I turned to cash this week. Remember, I'm now saving for a new mattress, two windows, a trip for me and Mr. Right and a master bathroom remodel. Whew! Here's my top sellers on ebay...This Adriana Sport denim skirt was a brand I hadn't heard of before, but the fact that it was a size 20 meant it had some potential. It was listed for 3 weeks with no bids, but finally sold with multiple bids for $10.51
These Stamp 10 size 10 jeans cost $1 and sold for $11.52. I know we've mentioned overalls before, but they definetly paid off again this week...

New York and Co. size medium overalls sold for $9.99
Baccini size large overalls sold for 9.99Watch L.A. size large black overalls sold for 9.99. It's not all hearts and flowers though- my disappointment of the week...

This INC International Concepts size 12 black silk dress cost $1.00- and sold for $21.50. Imagine my disappointment when I found a small tear when I was folding this up to ship! It wasn't something I felt could be repaired without damaging the dress so I had to notify the buyer and cancel the transaction. The good side of this is that I wasn't out any shipping. It's much worse when your buyer finds a stain or tear after you've shipped. There were no takers on craigslist this week- mainly because I didn't relist any of my items to bring them to the top of the list. But overall a good week. Love, Kelly.

Ebay Profits: This week: 339.68
Craigslist Profits: This week 0
This weeks Costs: 33.00 (clothes) -100.11 (ebay fees) -38.23(paypal fees)
Total Profit: 168.34

This will pay for 1 of the windows I need repaired!


  1. How many times do you relist something before you give up? After reading your blog I've started doing some Ebay selling as well. I get so discouraged when some items don't even get views. Then I read how you relist things multiple times and sometimes then get a sale.

  2. Also, do you relist right away or wait and then relist? If an item has 2-3 watchers but no bids, what does that mean? Should I relist at a lower price and then hope it will sell?


  3. No offense, but I can't get over the draw to, of all things, OVERALLS! I just can't do overalls.
