Ebay Sellers Storage Facility Ride Along and Daily Thrift Haul

  1. Good video! Watched the one the other day too! Nice to see someone else's storage locker! I started with a 10x10, then went to a 10x15 and just couldn't keep things neat and orderly so a couple of months ago I got a 10x25. My husband put temporary shelving in it using those big cement blocks and plywood or something. It sure makes it a lot easier! Now I've got lots of room and need to find more STUFF! You'll do good on the hot rollers...I always love picking those up...they sell well! Had to laugh at the "Good Daughter"...lol...glad Deidre caught that! :) Love your videos! ~~Pam

  2. Tony, Your storage locker is very organized, and has great shelving. How far is it from your home? The driving to fetch sold items is well worth the advantage of keeping the clutter out of your home, I believe.

    Last fall, I realized that my backlog was getting out of hand, after calculatng that I had over 400 items waiting for pictures. Since then, I have been consciously working to get the backlog under control, and I now have just under 200 items awaiting pictures, with approximately another 100 items photographed but unlisted. Plus, I have been handling new items that I purchased this year, at the same time. At this rate, it seems like I may get through the backlog by next year at this time, or at least that is my plan. I find the backlog staring me in the face every day is not very pleasant.

    Funny thing is that I had moved several bins of backlog items to the basement, and they stayed there for almost 2 years, which was worse than having them within sight, so that I could start processing them as time permits. The only solution to my backlog is that I really slowed up my shopping over the summer, and focused on getting things I already owned listed. But even though I had that discipline over the summer, I am finding it hard to resist shopping, now. But I am rather determined to be honest with myself and truly focus on getting more of this backlog processed. It helps me to keep writing it down, so I can gauge my progress or whether I am falling behind again. I just love shopping, and the thrill of the hunt; plus, I enjoy getting the challenge of getting a good price for something that I bought cheaply at the thrift store.

    My week has been really, really slow. I hope your auction action is working for you, and look forward to hearing all about it!

    1. Pat, our storage locker is only 3 miles from our house so very very close. We really want to get our backlog taken care of but the summer heat just won't allow us to spend much time in the locker so we have been waiting on fall. We should be getting into it real soon.

      We continue to hunt for new items but the oath we both have taken says we purchase only items we can get really cheap ( less than 5.00 ) that will sell for over 30.00 and if we don't find anything that meets that criteria then we just need to pass on it for now.

      Auctions have been interesting, we will have a full report after Monday next week. Stay tuned !

  3. Tony, You are very lucky to have the storage locker so close to your home, so you can retrieve sold items very quickly. I am excited to hear about your auctions, and how your month ended. I found it was strong here at the end of the month, which was very, very nice and a pleasant surprise.

    Overall, September was an okay month, not my best or worst, and as I have said before, I have had some higher-priced sales, which is always good. Plus, I got some awesome feedback this week, so I am feeling good about this month. Since I sell lots of sweaters, we are coming into my good time of the year for sales, and I am extremely optimistic.

    Hope you guys are doing great!
