I continue to dig through the old inventory and get it listed. Sometimes I'm so surprised at how quickly something I've had sitting around for a couple of years sells! Yes you heard right, years. I need to start imaging bags of money sitting on my floor and get that stuff listed! Here are a couple of those sales.
These corduroy Express pants were sitting for a long time. I don't remember how much I paid. Probably a couple of dollars. They sold for $29.99 plus ship. Sold about a week after listing them.
This picnic thermos set also sat forever because it had flaws that I didn't see when I bought it. Some tears in the vinyl and the gaskets had wear and stains. Sold a couple of days after listing for $24.99 plus shipping. I just disclosed all of the flaws and someone still wanted it. So just those two items was $55 sitting stagnant in my workroom.
Here is what I need to keep in my mind when I don't feel like listing.
About a week ago I reported that I'd sent in my first FBA shipment to Amazon. I've now sent in two shipments and have a third ready to go. I've only sold one book so far but that's okay. It's a lot of inventory I moved out of my house and I believe it will sell eventually. My sister on the other hand also started at the same time as myself. She got a lot of free almost new books from a friend who was moving in a desirable subject. She has already made almost $200 which is thrilling for her. I love getting someone else turned on to reselling. I hope she is inspired to continue after she runs out of the books that she was given. At least she will see that that avenue is always there for her if she needs or wants it say for a nice vacation or christmas presents.
Edited to Add: Someone in the comments asked some questions about FBA. I'm very new at and don't have much experience to offer but I'm linking up to a recent interview on Scavenger Life with Andrew of Picking Profits. There was a lot of information shared. A good place to start if you are interested in FBA. There are also tons of Youtube videos and bloggers who do FBA and tutorials on Amazon itself. Hope this helps.
