The eBay fiasco was a success, however not quite the way I was hoping. I did make a little money, I had an ROI of 6.7% which beats any savings account or money market fund. I did learn a little. I received the experience, and while they weren’t the first things I sold on eBay, they were the first items I had bought with the sole purpose of reselling for profit. I was much more interested in their success/failure and constantly monitored them compared to previous i-just-need-to-get-rid-ofit or im-sellings-because-im-upgrading auctions. I spent a lot more time and attention on the details while the auction was open and during the setup process. Because of the energy it requires, I of course would need to refine the process in order to make it more lucrative. (cheaper/more products, streamline the posting process, so forth).
I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on any kind of alternative for making some quick cash (not stocks/bonds/etc) that required little effort.
