But...it's really nice to have something to think about besides diapers and dinners.
And when a hobby makes you money...bonus!
My hobby recently has been buying and selling items, both on ebay and Craigslist.
I'll admit that I got a bit behind during soccer season.
Except I kept on buying the clothes.
I just didn't get them all listed.
I realized that there was a problem when I looked at my dining room table the other day and...
Where did my table go?
Has anyone seen the table?
Long...oval...outdated honey oak...?
It's under that mountain of clothes?
I got to work and started listing the clothes.
Because I needed my table back.
The last couple of weeks have been very busy for ebay.
Last week I shipped out over 50 items.
But the pile is getting smaller...I think.
Here are some top sellers...
I always get so excited when I see Prana items.
Because they always sell...the first week that I list them.
This super soft Prana sweater (size small) was no exception.
Bought for $2.50 and sold with multiple bids for $13.38.
This Eddie Bauer tan corduroy skirt was purchased for $2 and sold for $13.
This 20W skirt was purchased for $2 and sold for $12.
Purchased for $3 and sold for $29.

Our Goodwill store got a new manager a couple of months ago and the prices have gone crazy.
For example, I used to be able to pick up wood dressers for $10-15 but now they are asking $50-70.
As I left from my weekly shopping trip, I spied a solid wood entertainment center that had just been donated.
Because there was no room in the store
They sold it to moi for $15.
I put it on CL the day before Thanksgiving and it sold the day after.
That's more like it!
