Just List, dammit!
Post your listing numbers here every Monday to be included in this challenge. For details on the challenge, please look at Trash Elf Listing Challenge 2019.
This is thread #4, beginning October for the last quarter of the year.
New Rule #6 added: Listings numbers are number of listings created, not number of items listed.0

I managed 28 new listings last week, but more importantly, I finally got my listing mojo back. Between yesterday and today I’ve created 37 new listings. Fingers crossed my mojo doesn’t go back into hiding.
Wishing everyone a great week ahead!0

I had a week of many distractions; however, I was able to list 44 items.
How? Because about 33 of them were copies. I bought a large auction lot of whiskey pitchers, and the differences between the listings were brand of whiskey, brand of pitcher, height, and so on. I also had the photo taking down so that it only took less than two hours to get them all done.
This week I also will have distractions, and I’m not going to work on the rest of the pitchers until I get some other stuff listed. So, my number will be smaller next Monday.0

Totally in show mode now but did manage a rather grand picking adventure (twice, even) which I will say more about later….but in the meantime I got 24 listings done this week. The next two weeks will be zero for me.
Hope everyone has a great week ahead!0

First, the number: 8 listing last week.
Now, I’m going easy on myself because I was out of town last weekend at an amazing but tiring music festival. And then I got sick with a sinus infection. And I had a good number of sales to take care of (YAY!).
I’m still dragging from the sinus infection, but I’m hoping to maybe get another 30 listings this week and weekend. I have another pile of jeans from my daughter. I also put 5 items in the “not worth it, thrift store” bag.0

Well I finally got back in the action with 13 items listed. That’s 10 unique listings. Did some tinkering on almost expired listings, bumped promoted from 1 to 2%. Was rewarded with one $19 sale. Oof. Maybe will catch a break this week but I’ll be out of town this weekend.0

Well done, VT! Looks like you’re going to take the baton next week! Fingers crossed you’ll be on a roll for the rest of the year. I’m going to be posting a thread about Habits, shortly, it should help us with our DP Challenge.
Sharyn, “sell similar” is my favorite button! I love it when it works out so well!
Looking forward to hearing about your picking adventures, VL. In the interim, I’ve put two zeroes into the spreadsheet to remind me. However, if you do end up with any listings, post as usual and I’ll amend it accordingly. It’s just with my butterfly brain, I’ll be wondering why you haven’t posted if I don’t mark it forward.
Welcome to the team, chaoticgood, thrilled to have a new Elf in the group!
ChristineR – you’re back! Whoo hooo! So pleased to have you back on the go.
As for me, zero as anticipated. I will be finishing up this week, so expect me back on the list next Monday.
Spreadsheet updated, Sharyn wins a hat-trick of 3 in a row and is now tied with points with VT. You ladies have been given two weeks’ grace by VL, so you can pull ahead a little in the points game. Go for it! 😀1+

I’ll kick it off with a zero for this week. Got the taxes done! *does happy dance* and finalized all the expense lines and everything and even did some of THIS year’s stuff (figured I’d get on with it while I was in the mojo, IYKWIM.)
Will be back on the board this coming week. Gotta start listing now and get those holiday sales in! Drove the hubby’s truck this week and danged if he doesn’t desperately need a replacement! Only, what, 10 weeks to Christmas? Plenty of time! Gulp!0

Amatino you may have jinxed me with your well-meaning “Well done, VT! Looks like you’re going to take the baton next week! Fingers crossed you’ll be on a roll for the rest of the year.” Or more likely I jinxed myself by saying I had my listing mojo back – LOL!
Honestly I did okay with 56 new listings last week, but that was with 3 days of zero listing. On Monday night we had to rush our 19.5 year old cat to the emergency vet. By Tuesday afternoon our bill there was more than I make on eBay in a month. Ouch. Anyway our cat is at home and seems to be doing well now (for a 19.5 year old cat) but I spent 3 days coaxing him to eat, to take his medicine and worrying instead of listing. The news wasn’t great from the vet but most cats don’t live to his age so it’s not surprising. But it’s still difficult news since he’s our baby… We are feeling very grateful to still have him with us for now.
Anyway, I cancelled my vacation that was going to start today so I’ll be getting more listing done this week than I would have, so there’s that!
Wishing everyone a great week!0

So sorry, VT. 🙁 Hugs to your furble from me!0

I listed 29 items, about 24 new listings! Starting to get a bit of mojo back. I didn’t do the clean out challenge since I want to focus on new listings, but in January or maybe before will take a hard look.0

VT – So sorry about your kitty cat’s medical issues.
I was able to list 25 items last week.
I should do better this week.0

Listed 17 items this week, 12 unique. VT, good luck with kitty. Mine lived 19 years too. She was a real pain, but still sad.0

I listed 47 items this week, which included 34 whiskey pitchers.
This group of pitchers I listed on Etsy where I only had three listings previously. I figured I’d list the pitchers in two different sites for better coverage. The rest will go into storage for when a good number have been sold or when I find another site I want to post to.
This week I work on items I obtained at two other auctions since I bought the whiskey pitchers. I still have the radios to work on and stuff from a family friend (on commission), so I really have a huge backlog. I’m not calling them deathpiles yet because I have’t had them for that long, but I really need to stop buying inventory!!!!0

I’m back on the board! I listed a whopping 6 items. Oh…. pffft I’m back, m’kay? 😛 I would have done more, but it took a whole day to list those 6 and I thought it was my computer or that I had a virus or something. Then I found out that the eBay system was playing silly buggers and decided that I have too many other things to do to stress myself out over it and got on with those instead. But at least I’m back in the game.0

Thank you so much everybody for the good wishes for my cat. He’s doing okay right now (for a sick almost 20 year old cat) so we’re super grateful.
I was supposed to be on vacation last week (I canceled it because of the cat situation) so even though I only did 23 new listings that’s still more than it would have been had I been on vacation.
In defense of my fairly low listing number my cleaning person was here on Thursday morning and disconnected my internet somehow. My husband was out of town and being me I had no idea how to fix the problem. BUT it appears that eBay was all screwed up anyway so I guess I didn’t miss much as far as listing on Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Luckily(?) sales were also screwed so I was only late shipping the measly 2 items that sold on Thursday. My hubs got home on Saturday, plugged in one dangling cord and the internet was fine. Yup, I’m a dope. Since I couldn’t list on Friday I spent it at 2 different Goodwill Outlets in my area. Not the greatest stuff I’ve ever found there, but so fun, and I’m already ahead of what I spent there.
Wishing everyone a great week!0
