Follow the Golden Graham Cash - Week #4

Follow the Golden Graham Cash is a great path to be on. To read lasts week’s journey, click here. I’ve enjoyed the profits from this adventure and hopefully next week I'll be ready to buy my new vacuum.

So, if you're new to My Dear Trash, I won this $5.00 credit card in a box of Golden Graham cereal.

With my lucky credit card, I purchased five articles of clothing at Goodwill on $1.00 day. I list the items on EBay, and deduct $5.00 off my profit to purchase five more things on the next week.

Do you want to see my latest finds and what they sold for on EBay?

Tommy Hilfiger is an interesting label. Sometimes it doesn’t sell to well, but other times it rocks the boat. These Women's Tommy Hilfiger Size 12 Blue Navy Cargo Pants cost me $1.00 and sold for $22.25.

My take on dresses is anything goes, as long as it’s cute, clean and somewhat stylish. Of course, I love vintage too. This Women's American Eagle Small Long Rayon Green Dress sold for $8.99 to a customer in Greece. I hope she enjoys it.

Ann Taylor is classic and always sells well on EBay. This Ann Taylor Loft Medium NWT $69 Gold Thin Shirt Cardigan sold for $9.99. When I sell an item that still has the tags on it, I will list what the item sold for new.

I love Eileen Fisher, but the shirts don’t sell as well as the skirts. This Eileen Fisher 100% Silk Small Red Long Sleeve Shirt didn’t sell at all.

And lastly, this Women's Gap Size 10 NWOT Denim Jean Knee Length Skirt didn’t sell either. It’s as adorable as they come, but the timing just wasn’t right. I’ll relist it next week and see how it does.

So what’s my total profit for the week off a $5.00 investment?


This weeks profits bring my grand total to $164.18.

It’s so easy to run this business. I l*ve the process of turning trash into cash. There's a trash revolution happening right before our eyes.


  1. Do all the Good Will's have "dollar days?"

  2. How do you purchase items for $1? I went to my Goodwill and the dresses were from $6.99-$8.99. Not bad if I were purchasing it for myself, but when I don't know what it will sell for, I don't want to lose money. Jeans were $4.99-$6.99 and tops were about $2.99-$4.99. Where's the dollar stuff?

  3. I can't believe that Eileen Fisher didn't sell. I have never seen one of her shirts go for under $50 even on second hand websites. Maybe the shirt didn't do well in their women’s apparel review. I'm not sure how much people pay attention to stuff like that, but its usually something I consider before buying something.
