Ebay "Trash to Cash" Sales for May, 2014


This was an exciting month for me on Ebay, as I achieved both Top Rated Seller and Powerseller status, and decided to open up a store! Here is a rundown of the items that I sold from my dumpster dives and coupon deals:

This lot of 13 Harlequin romance books from the "Men in Uniform" series that I found in the dumpster sold for $15.75 with free media mail shipping, which cost me $4.84.

This ceramic dog bowl that I found set out by the curb with someone's trash sold for $11.99 plus the buyer paid $11.34 for shipping by Parcel Post.

This lot of 12 Harlequin Historical Romance novels that also came from the dumpster sold for $14.50 with free media mail shipping, which cost me $4.84.

This hardbound book which I believe I found at the recycling center sold for $6.99 with free media mail shipping, which cost me about $3.00. It could have sold for a little more, but it was missing the dust cover.


These 2 boxes of Osteo Biflex that were a money maker at Rite Aid a year ago sold for $9.25 and the buyer paid $2.76 for first class shipping.

This lot of 8 back issues of Ceramics Monthly magazine from 2002 that I found at the recycling center sold for $22.00 and the buyer paid $5.55 for parcel post shipping.

This Zantac that was a money maker at Rite Aid earlier in the month sold for $7.27 with free first class shipping that ran me $1.93. I had cut the UPC code off to the do the Try Me Free offer, but the buyer was OK with that since she got it so cheaply!  My rebate check came in today's mail.

This Cuisinart carafe that had been sitting in the basement ever since my coffee pot died 2 years ago sold for $11.95, and the buyer paid $6.94 for parcel post shipping. Apparently, replacement parts for high end kitchen items are profitable niche on "the bay".

This lot of 48 vintage mass market paperback novels from the 1950's, 1960's, and 1970's was listed with free shipping for $65.00 or best offer. They also came from the recycling center. A buyer offered me $39.99 which I declined, then the same buyer offered me $49.99, which I accepted. The box weighed over 10 pounds, so the media mail shipping cost was $7.64.

And this was my favorite deal for the month, even though it didn't involve a free item: my husband travelled to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for business and asked what I would like as a souvenir. I asked for a mug from Starbucks. He brought back three, that he bought for 179 pesos each, equivalent to $14.00 apiece. I listed one in a 7-day auction starting at $39.00 and it sold today for $50.00 plus the buyer paid for the shipping!



My total for these items was $177.44, but after Ebay and Paypal fees which run approximately 13%, my profits for May came to about $154.00.

How To Procure Produce on a Budget


One of the questions I am most frequently asked is - how do we manage to cut the expense of produce? I have several strategies to keep our fruit and vegetable costs down, as follows:

1. Stock up on frozen and canned fruits and vegetables whenever they are free or very cheap.
2. Use the FLIP coupons at Food Lion to save on produce whenever they come out. Also, Safeway often has electronic coupons for fresh produce that you can load to your store card.
3. Take advantage of the weekly Healthy Offer from Saving Star and  Checkout 51 to get money back on produce purchases.
4. Send off for No Beer/Wine Purchase Required mail-in-rebates to get money back for produce purchases.
5. Grow our own vegetables at home. 
6. Join a CSA - a community supported agricultural program.

Last year I spent about $400 in February to join Great Country Farms, which the farmers then used to purchase seeds and fertilizers. In return, I received a share of organically-grown, seasonal produce each week for 20 weeks - which works out to $20 per week. This plan had both advantages and disadvantages. The advantages were - lots of fresh, healthy, locally grown veggies throughout the season and yummy, pick-your-own berries. The disadvantages were - not being able to choose what I received each week, getting vegetables that I didn't especially like (beets, anyone?), and getting huge quantities of something one month and none the next month. 



If you are a person who loves to cook, can, chop and freeze things, then this a great way to go. I only have the urge to spend time in the kitchen once in a blue moon, so this year I opted to plant my own garden.

I went to Southern States last week and spent $3.99 each on 4 tomato plants. One of them was a cherry tomato plant, which went into the Topsy Turvy planter that I got on clearance last year at CVS for free with my Extra Care Bucks. 



The other three regular tomato plants went into my backyard box garden, which is a very easy thing to make. All you need is some boards and soil. We also used the Osmocote plant food that was free after mail in rebate!



I was lucky to snag these brand-new plant supports off my Facebook virtual yard sale last week for free! Do you think my tomatoes will get high enough to need them?



Next we planted strawberry plants that were a gift from blog reader and gardener Dologram.



Dolgram also blessed us with a raspberry bush. It won't go into the garden but up against a fence, since it needs support.



I did an interesting trade with someone from A Full Cup a few months ago. I sent her some coupons and she sent me some seeds. 



So, we planted those in the garden as well, then watered everything thoroughly.



I look forward to picking our own produce right out of the backyard in a few months!
