$10 Challenge Episode #8

 $10 Challenge Episode #8

Got busy during Quarter 4 of 2014 so I didn’t have a chance to upload this until today. In this episode I spent a total of $98 of which $35 was from 2 t-shirts I sniped on eBay that I have listed and will sell for the right price, in the meantime I will be sporting them. As for the rest of the haul I got some good pickings, I couldn’t pass up all the Sealed VHS which I got all of them for $1. These will all be long tail so I don’t expect them to sell super fast on Amazon FBA. During this episode I pick up my first batch of blazers for the $10 challenge, it will be interesting to see how long they take to sell. If you are new to selling blazers this will be some good information for you to watch to see just how long it takes to sell and for what price points. Overall I’m happy how this challenge is going as I hit some milestones so far. First I have officially taken $10 to $1,000.. YES! Second, I have over $500 in my picking fund and its burning a hole in my pocket. The purpose of this challenge is to not only document this for myself but it is very helpful to people who are just starting out in reselling so they can see what items sell for along with how quick they sell. As I move on down the road I’m really hoping to start ramping things up and spend some of this picking fund to get quick returns. Time will tell….
