Confession Time

Many of you may not know what I do to contribute to our income. Although I have a Bachelor's Degree in English, I am not doing anything with it. I do plan to some day, when our kids in school, or just when I get the itch to do something different. Right now, I sell on eBay. I sell a little bit of everything and anything, but primarily baby clothing. I go shopping and look for major deals...I'm talking the deal of all deals, I only buy things that are practically dirt cheap. They also HAVE to be a name brand. Some of my favorite stores to shop for these bargains are Gymboree, Baby Gap, Carter's, Marshall's, TJ Maxx, and Old Navy. Then I simply take pictures, and list them on eBay to resell! Although it is a lot of work, it is really a ton of fun! I think it allows me to go shopping for all things "baby" to appease me a bit until we actually have our own baby.

Well, right now Jared is laid off from work...he will be going back some time in April, so don't fret! So, while we are both at home, we decided to do a little (a lot) of shopping this week for our "eBay store." We scored some major deals indeed! And, I must confess, I bought a few things that I presently have no need for whatsoever, but just couldn't pass up! Old Navy is having a huge clearance blow-out right now, and I bought some maternity clothes. Yes, you heard right...maternity clothes! I bought two shirts for $2.50 each and these cute pants for $4.99...

Seriously though, how could I not buy them?! Such a great deal! Hopefully I'll be able to wear them sooner rather than later, but until then, they sit in my closet. Jared was actually all for me buying them and wanted me to buy more, but I set a limit.

As for a quick thyroid update...I am feeling better and better each day. Tomorrow is my big follow-up appointment with the surgeon and I will get the results back from my pathology report. Afterwards, Jared and I are heading to my parents house in Rhode Island for two nights to visit. Here's to hoping that my nodule wasn't thyroid cancer...and if it is, well then, it is.


  1. I hope you only get good news back! Glad you are feeling beter too! What's the name of your ebay store, I should check you out.

  2. I bought a few maternity things at the end of summer, capri's for $2.50 and a pair of jeans for 99 cents, CRAZY. I figured they would be useful for this coming summer, hopefully they will. I figured less than $4, even if I don't get KU soon and am not pregnant during the summer I am not really losing anything.

  3. That's an awesome way to make $$$!!

    Good luck tomorrow!

  4. Could you send me a link or your screen name on ebay? I'd like to save you as a seller and perhaps you'll have something I like and can afford sometime! good luck selling!
