Books for sale
Spurred on by listening to the #Girlboss audio book and the fact that my bank account is looking so lack-lusture following months of being on SMP (Statutory Maternity Pay) I’ve decided to try to boost my income (and as a result my savings) in any way possible!
First stop, eBay, where, rather than trying to sell carefully curated vintage clothing – a la Nasty Gal (see #Girlboss reference above), I am simply selling the stuff which no longer ‘sparks joy’ – a la the KonMari method (coincidently I sold that book on eBay a short while ago!).
It’s going to take me a while to get everything listed, especially as owing to a lack of space in our two-bedroom apartment I’ve taken to storing my to eBay pile(s) at my mothers. Each Friday I head over, my mom will get some playtime with Elliott whist I list 10 items before lunch. At this rate it should all be listed by around 2021!
I find eBay painfully slow and laborious, but having already made around £40 so far this year (£40.53 profit to be exact fact fans!) by selling some absolute rubbish (an empty perfume bottle anyone..?) it’s a mummy money making channel I can’t ignore! Le sigh.
Here’s some of my current listings, should you care to take a look, or place a bid…
Paperchase stickers, Wilko page markers, giant paperclip and magnetic handbag notepad
Orla Kiely iPhone case – I still love this but no longer use it so it true KonMari style it has to go…
What do you do to boost your mummy money? Or should that ben #mummymoney?
