I'm alive!!!

My blog has been neglected lately along with my kids, my camera, the housework and my poor husband! Why you ask? The answer is Ebay!!!

I have often thought about selling coupons (you can't actually sell coupons but rather your time to find, sort, clip and ship them) on Ebay and finally decided to jump in with both feet. I'm so glad I did because in the past 15 days I've made well over $200!! It is perfect for us, I am able to bring in as much money as a regular part time job and still be home with the kids! AND, not only am I making money but I'm also saving a bunch having all of these coupons to use! I have high hopes that this turns into my own little business that I can easily run right from home. I even put Cody to work clipping coupons and separating the pages of the inserts. It's very addicting too, I've been digging through the closet looking through the bags of kids clothes I have to see what else I can sell ;)

I also wanted to say I have a new found respect for moms that work in and outside of the home and also raise a family, how in heck do you do it!? This is taking every ounce of my spare time which I had none of to begin with I might add. ;) I am now getting up at 4:30-5:00 in the morning so I can have an hour or two to clip and sort my coupons before the kids wake up and staying up an hour later in the evening so I can do the same.

I agree, it's difficult to prioritize working from home! I'm not sure what I'm gonna do when we have another baby! Good for you though!

It's great that you're so dedicated. I'm glad Cody is helping you. If you have lots of coupon auctions going at once, you could look into an auction service or software to make it more automated. You'll just have to change a little bit of the info and the photo.

I'm glad you are feeling rewarded with your auctions! Keep up the good work but don't work too hard!
