Getting set up to sell on ebay has been a tiny bit fun and a whole lot of daunting. The shipping scares me. I know, "aw-it's easy". I have bought and re-sold two children's worth of gear and clothes and I have managed to avoid ebay. This was no small feat considering at one point I owned 4 strollers, but only had 2 children.
Thanks to the great shipping post by The Yard Sale Mommy. I am going to do this. At least I think I am. I feel like a 7 year old at the edge of the high dive. We'll see when I actually get the courage to jump and list something. I told hubby it was going to be Wednesday. Hubby is anxious to get my new found hobby organized. (More on that later)
I went to a bigbox office supply store this weekend to purchase my shipping scale and let out a "You want what?!" $99 to be exact. Um... no thank you.
Twice a week, I stop at GW (good will) Today was one of my scheduled stops. I heard a little boy say, "74 pounds". I turned, looked down (insert angelic singing) A SCALE! Oh- and not JUST a scale, a Health O Meter Professional scale. I have learned (kind of) to stay calm until I see the price. $3.98 (Yippie!)
(yeah right, like I'm going to enter a number there)
I weigh WHAT?!?!
I quickly hopped off so that nobody could see and broke out into a little sweat. I looked back down at the scale and saw that the needle needed adjusting. Back to 0 and I tried it again. Oh. That's more like it. I tested it out with various items in the store and it weighed light items just fine. I'm not quiet sure why I did that, but I did. Again, I'm scared of shipping, remember?
So, now I have a scale to calculate shipping. Hopefully, I'll gather up the courage and jump.
