I’m Selling Unwanted Crap On Ebay To Help Pay My Mortgage

I’ll be selling shit on ebay this week for my second instalment of raising money for my Reduce My Mortgage By £15k project.

I’m a great fan of ebay. In fact, I’m a huge fan. I love the concept; and I love a good bargain. I don’t sell much on ebay simply because I’m too lazy, but I’m a rabid buyer of random junk. I usually buy DVD’s and jewellery to assist my piercings (I have my ears, nose, and lip pierced).

I don’t expect too make much from ebay because I don’t have much to sell, but as they say, every penny counts. Actually, that’s a lie, I do have loads of junk lying around the house that I could sell, but preparing the items is beyond boring. For example, if I want to sell a shirt, I need to iron it, hang it somewhere with good lighting, take a few “clear” pictures (which isn’t easy), and then transfer the files onto my computer. BORING!!! However, Ebay seems like an easy and obvious way of generating some cash, so I may as well sell a few items.

I’m only going to put up a few items to start with; if I get a positive result, I may force myself into putting more shit up for auction.

From the few random items I conjured up, I hope to make a few hundred pounds. I’m being optimistic, because I genuinely am selling junk, But then again, ebay tends to attract a lot of strange people that love being strange items. That’s what I’m counting on anyways.

The Items I’m Selling on Ebay

Item 1 – Men’s Armani Lucky Charms necklace.

This actually retails at £250. My ex g/f bought me this; I didn’t wear it once. It really isn’t my thing; although I think it’s pretty cool. I know selling presents (especially from ex’s) is frowned upon by society- but I don’t care- THIS IS BUSINESS!

Item 2 – Men’s Burberry Wallet.

I bought this a few years ago, before the brand became the national symbol for chav’s. It’s amazing how a group of badly dressed, foul-mouthed, idiots ruined a once prestigious label with such ease. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be seen dead with it now. I’d rather carry my money/cards/ID in an envelope. But what’s more funny is that Burberry wallets are actually selling quite well on ebay, for reasonable prices. Is it possible that chavs play online?

Item 3 – Nokia 6101.

I’m pretty sure almost 9/10 people have at least 1 spare mobile phone. I have 4, but I can only be bothered to put this one up for auction (for now). I can’t even remember how I came to owning this mobile. I sure as hell never used it; I think someone left it around my house years ago. Anyways, the history of the phone means nothing to me; the sooner it’s out of my life, the better.

Item 4 – Vintage Hugo Boss shirt.

This has been hanging in my closest gathering dust for years, along with many other items. I hate throwing away clothes, especially since most of mine are designer (I’m a fashion whore); consequently half of my closet consists of items I never wear. I actually like the shirt, but it just doesn’t suit me anymore; I swear it used to. Either way, it’s HISTORY!

After prepping those items, I got bored and decided to see the outcome before I continue auctioning more junk. But as mentioned, if things go well, I may make an effort to shift more shit!

piercings & designer clothes... hmmm...

not sure i understood your latest message. here's my interpretation:

"i'm an expert in website optimisation, why didn't you ask me?"

(by the way, SEO? is that like CEO?)

and i have no clue as to what the reference to my mother might mean, but i hope you're being polite.

Hi Anglolatina :)

Glad to see you back in my hood!

I'm always polite, especially to your mother. You know that, son!

SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimization. It's all web development related. See, I may prove to be useful to you afterall!

Yes, piercings and designer clothes....Hmmm...
