Ebay Addict

Instead of continuing old hobbies or starting new hobbies in my spare time I have become addicted to Ebay. In the past week I have bought...

1 Bumblebee halloween costume: $1.90 + shipping
1 Discontinued Little People Dream House plus people and accessories: $33.99 + shipping
1 Pair Black mammoth Crocs (Mom repaying me... Birthday present!!)
1 Lot of 4 Mr. Potato Heads (various sizes) + accessories: $1.75 + shipping

I have bid (half-heartedly) on multiple listings of Kiddapotamus swaddle blankets but lost.

I also stalked Craigslist but everything I would be interested in is too far of a drive. Mostly stalking crib listings as we'll probably need another one and I can't justify spending hundreds of dollars on a crib.

I really need to stop. Dave will kill me if I keep this up!

Kate, the key to winning any auction off of eBay is to wait to bit until the last 30 seconds of the will then swoop in bid pretty high but win for only a few pennies more than the last bidder! Good Luck and yes it is extremely addicting!!!

Yeah, i know =) The problem I have found with a lot of items is you need to know how much they retail for. The swaddle blankets that I lost ended up (with shipping) costing more than if I were to just go to Babies R Us and buy them new.

For businesses that operate not only web stores, but brick and mortar retail outlets, it's important to be sure that stock can be controlled centrally, and that orders taken through stores can be managed by the same system as used in the website. That means that it's simple to see what needs to be done, what orders must be filled, and to manage schedules, deliveries, and other tasks. Web shop providers are available that can give you control over multiple outlets at once. For smaller businesses, however, this feature would be unnecessary. Learn more with List Easy

How it would be if small business people are provided by some cheap and best business solutions that at once make them big businessmen from small retailers? Are there any such solutions available in the world? If available, how can one get them?
