When we started selling on eBay, it was 2008 when banks were collapsing across the country and hundreds of thousands of people were losing their homes. We didn’t own much of anything. eBay was a way to make some money in a rural community.
Fifteen years later, banks are collapsing again. I’m not educated enough to know how serious things are in the economy. We’re still helpless to do anything about the larger world, but we know we can work and be smart. Our financial lives have grown since 2008 and yet scavenging and listing on eBay is still part of our habit. Our scavenger knowledge have only improved. Nothing else has really changed. Here’s one of the first weeks we started publicly posting our numbers.
No magic or secrets. Just listing the same as before. Hope you had a good week.
