“I Bought It… on Ebayyyy”

I stayed up till 2am last night/early morning, prepping two Ebay listings, to sell some baby bottles that Daniel has outgrown.

I’ve been on Ebay since 2002, but I’ve been a buyer most of that time, and a very infrequent one at that. I bought exercise equipment, computer hardware, and — recently — baby equipment.

But then I bought one of these on Friday: Climbing up three flights of stairs at the high school I teach my dual-credit English class while ladened with multimedia gear — and then climbing down and pushing through halls crowded with salmon-run-thick students —  have convinced me that I needed to miniaturize my data projector.

I got an awesome deal on the InFocus projector — these things usually sell for well over a thousand bucks, and I got it for under four-hundred. But considering the timing — it *is* close to tax-time after all — I realized I probably needed to get some bucks while lightening the clutter around here.

Hence Ebay.

I need to prep another listing for the old Scantron machine that the Hubby bought but realized he couldn’t need — the model didn’t have features that he thought it had.  Yes, it was an Ebay buy, and now it will be an Ebay sell.  Kind of reminds me of a capitalist karmic circle — “What goes around, comes around” and all that.

Anyhoo — I’m also now debating whethere to sell the baby swing and bouncer that Daniel doesn’t use anymore on Ebay — and thus having to deal with shipping them myself — or with a local used baby gear store — and thus having to deal with setting up an appointment to have them appraised.

Either way, I won’t have stuff lying around that I don’t use anymore, with a little bit of $$ (which is always nice).

If single-mothering were a paid job, I'd be rich. However, it doesn't, so I write (which doesn't pay the bills) and teach (which does). I'm overly-educated in the liberal arts, but that doesn't hinder my ability to be pragmatic and realistic. YAY.
