    Your sales are really awesome! Well done for sticking at it! I seem to sell things in dribs and drabs - we don't have a massive amount to get rid of to be honest, but I'd like our place to be leaner before Christmas (and my son't birthday which is the week before) so maybe I should start the big toy clear out sooner rather than later!

    HI jwil

    Just caught up on your diary. You put me to shame with all your sales and car boot sales! You are doing a fantastic job. Just think September, October, November and December are the busiest times for ebay so brace yourself for a busy time.

    I think it feels amazing when the clutter starts to reduce and the cash comes in.

    When I have some time I am going to make myself a cup of coffee and find your old diary, as I think it will be such a good read.

    Take care and have a wonderful day.

    Thank you, I keep trying to remind DH that now is the time to get listing ;)

    That would be very brave reading my old diary!

    Great amount of sales. I never seem to have much luck on the fb groups either. Did a car boot a while ago, made about £150 and dropped the rest at the charity shop on the way home. I am planning another sort out, to see what we could sell.

    Yum to the lardy cake! Never attempted my own, but love to eat it :p

    I'm glad it's not just me. Abba sells loads on there and seems to shift stuff well, here it's just a waste of time - even the other posts don't seem to move that much, so it's not just my stuff.

    Thank you :) It's definitely picking up again now, it's a good time to sell! I like to go full out in Sept, Oct and Nov, and then have a break in early December so I avoid all postal delays, then I put stuff on again over Christmas itself as it's a good selling time.

    It's been a while since I've been on. I had another crazy busy week at work last week, with long days so no time to get on here.

    Still some sales trickling in, a few annoying buyers :mad: I've had some back and forth with ebay CS about a case which was wrongly opened, closed in my favour and then they sent a refund to the buyer saying I had promised a refund and hadn't provided it. I contacted them again, and it has once again been closed in my favour. A couple of non-payers too. It's a complete pain sometimes!

    Not much else to report really. We didn't sell this weekend. I did parkrun again and was aching so much I didn't do a lot else for the rest of the weekend :rotfl:

    Hoping that we can get back into a bit of a routine again now that school is back and these meetings are over for a while.

    Hope everyone is well :)

    Ebay is so frustrating sometimes.

    I did my run this morning and I'm aching again!

    Made a small pad of £1.72 to the mortgage today. Also cashed in £2 amazon from a survey site.

    I don't seem to be doing much at the moment!

    Another load of parcels went this morning, just one of mine.

    I've received a £5 love to shop voucher this morning from RM. That will go towards something for little miss's birthday or Christmas I expect.

    I've applied for and got the code for 30 free hours nursery, it won't be valid until January, but my nursery said to get the application in sooner rather than later as they only have limited places.

    Trying to catch up on surveys. I'm close to cashing out on a few, and it's hard work trying to get there!
