I am absolutely LOVING the new eBay branded supplies. I got my first FREE 24 rolls of eBay tape and thought I would share with you guys how I am using it. The only time I am having to use my own tape is to put my backup tracking number on the backside of the package which I do on every single package I send out in case the original mailing label gets wet and obsured while in route to it's destination.
We can only use our coupon once every 3 months so since packing tape is our biggest expense we chose to use the whole coupon on packing tape and I have to say it looks pretty cool. I will warn you however this tape has a terrible odor to it, lol.
Just wanted to throw this out there in case you haven't got a chance to see what the tape looks like. It fit just right on one of my standard Duck Brand Tape roll holders. Those are the green ones you see in the pics. The top one by the sissors is the ebay tape.
This was a genius move by eBay, this is a really cheap form of advertising for them and we have already got several comments from people seeing all the eBay labels asking us questions about eBay, like do we do much shopping on eBay and how do we like it? It always surprises me that there are still people out there who either don't know about eBay or haven't shopped there.
Anyway that's it for now, me and Deidre are taking a little 3 day vacation, just going to goof off for a few days and forget about everything for a while and relax. That's the really cool part of being your own boss, you can take time off anytime you feel like it.
Sales have slowed down this week but still not as much as I have expected. We have done a little over 260.00 this week already and haven't even got to the weekend where we usually make our best sales. I want to thank you all for coming by and taking time to read up on our little retirement experiment.
So far we still have a roof over our heads, the lights are still on, the phone still works and we haven't missed a meal so I guess we are doing ok :-)
Thanks for coming by !
