07/01/17 Daily Blog

My thoughts on our recent sales:
  1. As always, if you don't list it you can't sell it. 
  2. Items don't always sell for what we want to get out of them. Amazon and books. Have to work on this one.
  3. All years of trading cards sell, even the mass produced years. Shown by my recent sales.
  4. Having the item gone might include a sale at a loss. Lots of this lately. 
  5. Returns are eating up my profits. Will flip the returns to eBay.
Here's the to-do list for today:
  1. Check for orders. Get orders shipped out.
  2. Check for yard/garage/estate sales
  3. Get ready for Amazon returns
  4. Get shipment ready to send to FBA
  5. Add (100) trading cards via spreadsheet to Amazon
  6. Add items to Inventory Lab #FeedTheBeast
  7. Add replens to Inventory Lab #FeedTheBeast
  8. Take Pictures/Scans
  9. Add (10) MF Listings to Amazon
  10. List (10) items on eBay
  11. Add (10) listings to Etsy
  12. Add cards to Kronozio - strictly a trading card site
  13. Watch YouTube videos

This is what we use for our business:

I just bought the turbo 450 printer and it works great. I've used the twin turbo for years with no problems. 
We use both of these labels all the time.
Packing Tape:
Scotch Tape:
I get Scotch Tape at the local Dollar Tree in 2 packs for $1

Other Cleaners:

Goo Be Gone, Brasso and Magic Erasers - All bought at the local Wal-Mart
For those pesky old price stickers we use Magic Erasers and Scotty Peelers.

Shoe Cleaners, polishes, and sprays:
We buy all this at the local Wal-Mart. 
All-Purpose Cleaner: 
This is an excellent cleaner for built up grime, grease, yellowing from cigarette smoke and the like. We used this in the house we moved into. The previous owner smoked in the house. The walls were yellow and the custom cabinets were caked with grease and cigarette smoke. The little garage was used as an extra pantry. The canned goods exploded in the heat and then stuck to the shelves in 1/4" to 1/2" inch think dried up molasses looking spills. We spread it on and we were able to take a putty knife to it about 10 minutes later. This is just an awesome cleaner. 

When I use other items I will gladly add them to my recommendations.
