2018 : $27,500 In Sales

Hi all. I finally finished my quarterly taxes for 2018. I was quite shocked with the sales I made considering I haven’t been working on reselling as much as I wanted to. My husband works so much more now since his promotion, so my reselling life has always been prioritized less. My son of course is #1, My home and family time is #2, and Reselling is always last.

I do feel a little burned out but I think it’s from not managing my time well. I am glad I sold more compared to 2017. It shows I made more profit, and the inventory I sold definitely has a higher average sale price ( ASP ). I’ve honestly just been sourcing better.

Even though I have been reselling part time for years now, I still feel like I could curate my inventory better. I still don’t know who I’m catering to. I pretty much stick to 25-55 year old women.

Poshmark has been good to me 2018. I’m just surprised how much it has added to my sales. I roughly sold 7,000 there so I’m happy. Ebay has been good in terms of sales since it is still the platform I sell the most on. Though Poshmark had a few months last year it beat out eBay and I can’t believe that even happen considering I still have more inventory on eBay. Right now both platforms have almost the same amount of inventory. Ebay just has more in terms of auctions because I do get 500 free auction listings a month ( it’s part of my subscription).

So for 2019 I will be sharing just numbers with you. Nothing special, no hauls, just numbers. I hope 2019 will be better for all of you. Btw I won’t be sharing my store names. I know a lot of people hate that but I’ve seen how the internet is with resellers, and I don’t want to be stressed out with my algorithms. Perhaps I’ll explain it more in the future in my next post.

Starting Over

Hi. I’ve been MIA for a while. My life has changed a lot since starting this blog years ago. I enjoyed blogging but now I need to find a different way to express myself. I will still blog, but I will be deleting past posts.

Mostly, my life has changed because my husband has been working more, we have a toddler, family drama, and just handling the reselling online aspect of my life. I just want something more enjoyable to blog about.

I’m planning to delete all my past posts just because I just have a feeling I want my “new” blog to better serve people stumbling over. I want something more of a routine and helpful, and sometimes personal posts. I know the reselling posts people seem to like, so I will of course still blog about reselling. The reselling game has certainly changed so much these past few years so I’m trying to figure out a way to post about it without going batty myself.

Anyways, I won’t be posting until 2019. Holidays are crazy Y’all. Plus I need to figure out a better schedule that works for me. Hope 2018 ends well to whoever is reading this.
