Once-a-Month Ebay Mommy
But today, I can breathe again.
Last night was ebay listing night. In case you are wondering if I spend my every night up late putting my things up for auction, I'm here to say I don't. In fact, over the years I've learned something very important: get it all done at once.
One week a month is all it takes. Just one week. I save up everything I have to sell, spend a few naptimes snapping pictures of everything Monday and Tuesday, spend a couple more naptimes making the listings, and then on listing night my husband gives the girls a bath and puts them to bed for me (sometimes even brings dinner home) and I spend the evening getting everything put up to auction. Now I can relax until next Wednesday night when I have to ship everything!

Now the fun part begins! Watching the auctions go is always the best part of the whole ebay experience. I began ebaying way back when my big girls were little babies. Getting up to nurse them in the middle of the night was so much easier when I had auctions to watch to keep me company!
You don't have to be an every day ebay mommy to make money. Just a once a month ebay mommy is all it takes.
