Mortgage Checking Update - WHOPPER of a sale!!

March 20th, 2014 at 01:29 pm

I have been posting items on FB for sale, and a coworker recently saw my posts and asked me to bring her some items to buy. She told me a bunch of the brands she uses and asked me put together a box of things worth about $60-$80 for her to buy! I was super excited! I wasn't sure if I would have $60-$80 worth of stuff that she would want to buy, but I just packed up a box with a bunch of different items, mostly CVS purchases, a few things from my personal stockpile that I thought she might be interested in, and the movies that I just bought from someone else on FB.....she ended up buying $202 worth of merchandise!!! ($8.50 of it was items that my Mom and Bro had mixed with my rummage sale stuff) So in less then a week I have made $240.50!! I have 2 more potential buyers on bodywash I am waiting for pick up on!

The best part was that I sold all of the DVDs that I just bought this weekend and I made a $64 profit on those! Nice, quick turnaround! Selling on FB is turning into a nice little supplemental income for me! Now I just need to restock because my inventory is bare!!

    Woot - you are good!

  3. CB in the City Says:

    That's great for you, but I have to admit I'm confused as to why people don't shop for their own stuff! Are they that busy?

  4. Banker Gurl Says:

    Well my prices are still cheaper then the store, I would say out of 100 different items, maybe 1 or 2 is more expensive then the store depending on where you are at. But yes I had 2 people that said I should just keep contacting them whenever I have new stuff because it's cheaper, more convenient(no checkout lines, parking lots, etc) and quicker since they already know in advance what they are buying from me and I can bring to work or if not a coworker they just stop by and I already have it bagged up for them.
