I’ve got some items listed on Mercari. So far, it’s been a bust. I had one person buy an item only to immediately ask for a refund because she couldn’t pay for it…so that was fun. I sold an item, but because shipping was so expensive that I ended up only making $8 after it sold- and for another item, I would have actually LOST money on the shipping because she was in ALASKA and so I had to cancel the transaction. So now I have guilt on top of not selling the item. I’m thinking Mercari isn’t for me- I don’t have a lot of high end clothes, because that isn’t my thing and even listing a purse for $20 can land you with $15 shipping fees…but of course, they recommend free shipping to get your item to sell faster (or at all). Sigh. Sometimes hustling is hard, you guys. If anyone knows the ins and outs, tips and tricks of selling on Mercari, help a girl out.
I can tell you that I’ve been living my best life with instant win games recently! My husband and I have both been playing the Circle K instant win game and so far this week between us we’ve won: 2 bags of candy, 1 bag of trail mix, 1 hot dog and 1 coffee. That’s not bad! This in addition to the popcorn and soda I won from Coke Rewards this week. If only we had an AMC theater here! I’m sure we’ll be around one before they expire. If so, that’ll be a fun boost for the entertainment budget! Now I just need a winning lottery ticket.
