Third Time’s a Charm September 27, 2006

I guess there is actually some truth to the saying third time’s a charm. Remember that Jeff Gordon track scanner I tried to sell on eBay twice and failed? Well, I walked past it sitting on the floor one too many times and decided to try to list it again. It sold! And, the funny thing is, it sold for more than my buy-it-now price. Woo-hoo! If I add the proceeds from this sale with the $30 I already had, I am well over $50, which means I finally have my initial $50 in the bank!

Sorry Pat, but we are now tied!

(CORRECTION: Pat and I are in fact tied.  However, we are not tied for first as I originally thought – we are tied for last! Apparently Vance finally finished raising his initial $50 as well.  But, unlike Pat and myself, he invested some of his initial money by buying some rockets and sold them for a profit.  So, that means he now has over $60.  Congratulations Vance on your current first place status!  Enjoy it while you can.)


SOLD! September 21, 2006

Both of my latest eBay auctions have sold!

So, here’s an update on my grand total (determined by the items I’ve auctioned minus eBay fees and shipping costs):

Remote Control = $10.00
iPod Adapter/Charger = $6.75
SkyRest Travel Pillow = $16.60

Grand Total =  $33.35!

Ok, so I’m not rich yet, but it is a start! Watch out Pat, you won’t be in first place much longer!

I’m Back – Finally! September 17, 2006

After my month plus hiatus, I am finally back! I finally had time to post a couple of items for sale on ebay today and I hope that these will sell – unlike the good-for-nothing Jeff Gordon track scanner. (I’m not bitter, really!) If they do sell, that should give me more than enough for my $50 in starting cash.

Take a look at my “for sale” page for links to the items.

So, keep your fingers crossed – not that keeping your fingers crossed really does anything, but at least it keeps you busy until you find something else to do.
