eBay Addict

Over the last few months I have spent a lot of time breastfeeding. Hours and hours some days. I believe that breastfeeding is a wonderfuland bonding experience, but I have found that I need something to entertain me(and keep me awake) during some of the longer feeds.

I started off reading facebook and Twitter and then moved onto reading various blogs. During a weekwith a lot of feeding (growth spurt, cluster feeding, call it what you will) I needed something else. I started internet shopping. Babies need a lot of things. Ok babies don’t need much, but Mummies like alot of nice things for their daughters. Itwas during one of these nursing shopping sessions that I started browsing eBay.

As I was browsing on my iPhone I was kindly informed therewas “an app for that”. The eBay app wassoon downloaded and I had my very own eBay and paypal accounts. Over the last few weeks I have come to know mypostman very well.

Fortunately for my bank balance I received an email from Ebaya week ago. They advised me that theyhad a free listing weekend so why not sign up to sell as well? Selling on Ebay is even more addictive thanbuying. For a week my phone kept onpinging to tell me people had bid on my items. Everything is now sold and I took them to the Post Office today.

Currently I have just about earned more than I spent. As the good gambling advice says: now wouldbe a good time to walk away...
But I just ordered some plastic postage envelopes...
And I’m mentally scanning the house for what else I can sell...

Does that mean I can start looking for more things to buy?

Today in Baby M's advent calendar there was a robin. Much more Christmassy than a dog's head. I however had a chocolate Christmas tree. yum x


  1. Hello Kate,
    I'm very interested in learning more about your experience on e-bay. Are you still buying and selling or did you finally walk away?

    1. I ran out of time so I stopped, although I think I had bought everything I might ever possibly need first :-)


Thank you for taking the time to comment on my blog, I really appreciate it
