Whew! There were seven shirts of various sizes and colors left from a bunch of shirts from the fast food place where my daughter's roommate worked in high school. These hung on the corner of the wire shelves in my pantry and were in the way. This evening I photographed and listed them all. I started them low enough so there might be some interest, and now they're in the system if they don't sell I can hold them a little while and relist later.

They're packed and the envelopes are in their own plastic bin in the sun room so I don't lose track of any of them. Two auctions end tomorrow, both have watchers, one has bids. I've just finished getting one last one listed, some expired HP ink cartridges my ex gave me a few months ago. We thought they might go in my neighbor's printer, but hers is a different size. Even expired, they might sell if the price is right. I find that if I don't have any investment in them myself it's easier to start them at .99 and that tends to bring a higher price in the end.

A note to folks who are considering posting to eBay: I've stopped using Chrome to list items, because it seems to block the preview screen. It may be that it sees this as a popup, but I find Firefox doesn't block me when I work, so I stay with that browser.

Tomorrow I have to do some laundry and general cleaning, but I'll see if I can get some more stuff listed. I think I may shift over to doing some work at Mahalo also, because for all of the work that is involved with this listing, I could spend the same time at Mahalo and earn more cash. I've been doing my reference library stuff over there for a while, though I dropped off at the end of the summer when they changed their payment scheme. I'd have to agree to X amount of work to earn cash, but I think that would work out okay for me.
