Taking Some Sick Days

No thrifting, shop updates or general to-dos going on. I've been a frazzled, coughing and congested mess since Tuesday. It's times like these I'm grateful for working from home, however home and work tasks have piled up. My DH and kids have been great about pitching in. I feel I'm turned a corner as even yesterday it would have been too much for me to sit and concentrate on trying to compose a post. Hope everyone is feeling well and hope you find some great thrifty finds!

February Reseller's Challenge Results

I didn't post my results weekly as I had intended. This month in itself was challenging with my family and I being sick for a week, kids' activities, doctors' appointments and just everyday things. My 6-month old laptop's hard drive took a nose dive over the weekend as I was planning to list inventory. Unfortunately, it was unable to be revived, even to retrieve files. Thankfully, it is still under warranty. I'm a little heartbroken over losing some files and bookmarks.

Through this challenge, I've learned it pays to be organized. It is difficult to work in a cluttered office. I spent two days this month reorganizing inventory and setting up a dedicated spot to take photos. I also have all of my business paperwork ready for tax time. I'm still working on keeping home and work-from-home balanced.

My goal in this challenge was to have 100 items listed in my eBay store. I started with 23 items and ended with 38 items. I sold 20 items and listed 40 new items. There were some things I had for a while and decided to donate.

So while I didn't meet my goal for February, I'm looking forward to making it in March.
