Hmmm. Every day is a little different so I will give you today. 🙂
3:30 wake up
3:30 -4 check emails and social media messages
4-5 Merch by Amazon normally today I worked Etsy due to Merch freeze
530 Take a break to do daily morning Instagram story (kind of daily synopsis of what is going on with us and what the day will look like)
6 Matt wakes up and we have coffee (I’m usually on my 3rd cup by then 🙂 )
7-730 Pull inventory to ship
830-930 Messed around on the internet LOL
930 Left to go sourcing and out to lunch
2 -330 Starbucks and the bookstore with our daughter
It is almost 4 now and I may or may not list a few more tonight and then make dinner
In bed by 8!
The days vary if I have coaching calls or if it is an all day listing marathon, or if one of the kids wants to hangout. We drop everything then!
Pretty boring but we love it!12/27/2017 at 9:44 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 340: We Reconnect with Cyndi from Amazing Taste #29427
Please don’t message me through Ebay as I can’t give out any information as it would be seen as an off-site transaction. You can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a direct message on Instagram (amazingtastestore). I would love to connect with a fellow Trash Elf!12/24/2017 at 7:24 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 340: We Reconnect with Cyndi from Amazing Taste #29360
Loved being able to catch up with you guys! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity!
Merry Christmas to all the Trash Elves!
The coaching from Greg was 1000x worth it! I can’t say enough good things about him and his information. I would highly recommend it. I am spending very little time per design. 🙂
Hey there everyone! Also wanted to comment on the Merch conversation. It is “easy” money if you only want a little money. Kind of like someone would say selling one item on Ebay is “easy”. Making a full-time living off of it will require full-time work just like anything else. Also Amazon can kick you off at any point so there is risk involved in being too heavily dependant on it. It does allow me to do something that is very different than selling on Ebay. I am sure you feel the same about your video jobs. It is a fun side gig. Ebay will always be our main gig though!12/11/2017 at 11:41 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 338: Rich Scavenger, Poor Scavenger #28591
I’m not cross listing to Etsy right now. My etsy inventory is totally seperate. I am planning on integrating Etsy Sixbit in 2018. 🙂12/11/2017 at 11:27 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 338: Rich Scavenger, Poor Scavenger #28589
I haven’t gone to Etsy through Sixbit yet. I am so cheap!12/11/2017 at 11:03 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 338: Rich Scavenger, Poor Scavenger #28585
Good morning! Another great podcast! I love the conversation about adding in Etsy and/or other platforms. We are loving etsy. It allows us to have a list it and forget it store and a quick flip store. We tried to do the list and forget it on Ebay and it just didn’t work. I love that this business allows us all to build a business that works for us!12/05/2017 at 5:32 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 337: If You Build It, You Will Have Storage #28143
Good morning! Congrats on the storage building! I am interested to hear when you do a complete inventory how many items you have that were once listed but now no longer are listed. I have always wondered if this plagues GTC sellers as much as it does relist sellers. Wishing we were closer so we could come and help you set up an inventory system! That sounds like a fun day to me. 🙂
It’s an interesting question of “what would you do”. I would have have honored the sale and Matt would have canceled. Anyhow I applaud you both for being honest and sharing the story. It would have been just as easy to say the original buyer didn’t pay and that you relisted. No one here would have been the wiser. I appreciate your honesty and openness to have the conversation! Back to listing. 🙂11/20/2017 at 9:06 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 335: Strategizing Out of Our Own Sweatshop #26020
Thanks! I’m always here just had problems posting before. I’ll try to post more now. 😃11/20/2017 at 5:20 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 335: Strategizing Out of Our Own Sweatshop #25983
Good morning! So excited to see the new mobile format for the forums here. 😃. I was just running November numbers and we have listed 274 items and sold 307. Not bad!
Anyhow, just wanted to log in and say thank you for being the one show that gets us through Monday morning shipping every week and Happy Thanksgiving!08/07/2017 at 11:39 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 322: Don’t Forget To Make Your Own Weekends #21464
There has been some talk as to whether or not the shopping cart works for multiple purchases when IPR is set. The bottom line from what I understand is, that it is suppose to work but sometimes glitches. Sorry that isnt much help!08/07/2017 at 11:15 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 322: Don’t Forget To Make Your Own Weekends #21457
17,000!! Thats nuts!08/07/2017 at 10:51 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 322: Don’t Forget To Make Your Own Weekends #21447
Good morning! Great episode. Couple of notes…
1. In order to be eligible for the guaranteed delivery program you have to be selecting Immediate Payment Required on your listings. You can do this and still offer best offer.
2. Mystery boxes are actually against ebay policy. Not that you guys were going to do one just a side note.
Busy shipping here. We are now selling on Etsy and Poshmark along with Ebay so crazy shipping. 🙂
Have a great week!
