While out garage sale-ing last weekend I came across this book in a box for a quarter.
Funny how about six months ago I paid nearly twenty dollars for the same book.
See, this is the book that we are using to teach Gwen to read and I looooove it. Very good book. Very worth the twenty dollars.
So what did I do?
I bought the book for a quarter, and listed it on ebay, and today it sold for about $18.50. It cost me a quarter, the envelope to mail it will cost a dollar, shipping will be about two dollars and ebay fees about fifty cents. So it cost me in all $3.75, so that is nearly a $15 profit.
And guess what, fifteen dollars is how much money I spent all day on saturday garage sale-ing. And I got
3 really cute dresses for Gwen
1 pair of pants that actually fit Gwen
1 pair of Sketchers shoes for Gwen
1 pair Robeez for Bentley (um, those are $40 new)
about 10 items for the new baby (quarter a piece, sa-weet)
board game for Gwen
Leapfrog learning computer thing that teaches numbers for Gwen.
Not too bad for a quarter (technically)
I heart garage sales.
