@Stuff – Our chickens love leftovers too. Nothing goes to waste around here with a dog and 17 chickens. You could always pasteurize the milk yourself. (We love it raw though. Been drinking raw milk for 10+ years and only have good things to say.) I think you’d only have to heat it to 165 F.03/07/2017 at 3:24 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 300: Our 300th Episode!!

We’ve had chickens for 12 years and sometimes raise a bunch of meat birds. Selling eggs is a money-losing proposition when you consider all of the housing, fencing and feeding costs but we do it anyway. Periodically we’ll raise 25 meat birds and kill them all in one weekend and fill the freezer. It’s a crap ton of work. We built our own Whizbang chicken plucker (just google it) and mobile sink/table on wheels. Such fun!03/03/2017 at 8:49 am in reply to: What Sells On eBay: Organ parts, trucker wallet, video monitors, 70's flip date, hurricane lamp, amps, turntable #13719
I suspect that they were promotional items, but there weren’t any labels. I only found one other that sold on ebay, a single lamp, and that one didn’t have any more info either.03/02/2017 at 4:46 pm in reply to: What Sells On eBay: Organ parts, trucker wallet, video monitors, 70's flip date, hurricane lamp, amps, turntable #13699
Here is our best sale in a while. Bought these for $8 at a yard sale and sold today for $160:

I agree. I am a programmer and all of the conspiracy theories sound far-fetched to me. Granted I’ve never worked at ebay but I’ve programmed for lots of big companies and I just can’t see them acting like that.02/08/2017 at 10:51 am in reply to: How do you handle 1 Day Handling time on Shipping? #12053
I think our mail carrier scans the bar codes when he picks up the packages at our house. Maybe they don’t all do this. Whether Pacific time or not, 24 hours is 24 hours right? So long as we purchase shipping within 24 business hours (weekends are excluded) I think that meets the criteria. Correct me if I’m wrong.02/08/2017 at 9:39 am in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 296: Are You Keeping Up With Your Inventory System? #12045
Wow, what a way to go.
Thank you Jay! If we can’t disagree respectfully then we should keep it to ourselves.02/08/2017 at 8:41 am in reply to: Would you ship nice casual shoes in a padded flat rate envelope? #12041
I don’t feel quite right about it either. If they are sandals or flip flops I think it is ok, but bigger more structured shoes wouldn’t fit anyway would they? Like a man’s size 13 sandal wouldn’t fit I think.02/06/2017 at 10:49 am in reply to: How do you handle 1 Day Handling time on Shipping? #11851
We both work full time and have never had a problem with this. We tend to only pack in the evenings. If anyone buys something at 11pm, after we’re in bed, then we still have until 11pm the next night to print a label, right? Do I have it wrong?
We leave everything on the porch for the mail carrier unless it’s a first class package in which case I can drop it at the mail room at work. From what I understand so long as you’ve printed the label it is considered shipped. Not that we ever delay getting things to the P.O.02/01/2017 at 2:05 pm in reply to: Scavenger Life Episode 295: The Challenges of Changing Your Strategy #11588
Oh I know, the joys of homemade bread are…. incalculable 😀
I second that. You guys really ARE the best. You’ve helped me so much. I really love Jay’s calm and unemotional approach to returns and bad buyers. And Ryanne’s videos… well, we still watch the old ones… still really miss them!

I’ve been doing low-carb (on and off) for years. It’s the only diet that is effective for me, and I suspect many other people. How many carbs are you eating? I’m having a generous 100 net carbs per day and it still works (and without keto flu).
I canceled our Bonanza store because they weren’t notifying me when an item sold AND they weren’t ending it on ebay. They started out ok but it went downhill after that and I didn’t change anything in my settings. Bleah01/27/2017 at 10:03 pm in reply to: Disputing Hassle Free Returns Reason via Beta Program #11333
How do you get into the beta returns program?
