I think as you say, if you want to make a change you are going to have to work for it, I would start by looking around your home and see what you could sell at maybe a carboot sale, that would give you a small amount of cash that maybe you could start too use to sell things on ebay, I would have a look around on ebay at what's selling, then look to buy those items cheaply maybe at pound stores and then sell them on with a profit, it would be small to start with and maybe slow going but over time you may be able to build up enough money to maintain replacing stock and give you some spare cash.
Another option is too not relax on your week off, and see if you could find some temp work to do maybe a couple of days during your week off.
yes this is true i never thought of seeing things on e.bay i was going to buy a batch of electronic cigs i orderd on a few weeks ago from china and it was really good for £22
and was thinking of seeling for £30 but like you said its a slow process as for work when im on my days off i think this is what it will lead to
You could also wander around charity shops and see if some items in there could be sold on ebay for a profit, and car boot sales are also a good place to grab bargains that could sell for higher amounts online.
A ship made of lolly sticks........sounds interesting, especially eating the lolly's first Lol
Ebay is really good for earning some extra cash.
I was running a ebay store up until recently, just going through a break up....so had to sell a lot of my stock.
But I go round car boots buying dvd ,cd etc...and then sell them on...always start the price at what you brought it for, so if it sells you at least get your money back. ...also include listing fees, packing costs...etc.
...if you need any advice on ebay, drop me a message, I have over 7000+ sales.
