My ebay Addiction


I have to admit it... I'm addicted to ebay! I bought 4 out of the 6 presents for Tim off of ebay. I would bid on something and then constatly check it the next few days to see how my bid was going. If I got outbid, I would be frantic, trying to think through how much I could spend and what the item was really worth. I even stayed up until 1 a.m. one morning, waiting for a bid to close! That's when you know you have gone too far :o)

Honestly, I was pretty skeptical about the whole online shopping scene prior to this year. I figured that I would just try it. It was so simple and convenient! I actually saved money too! I only had one problem with a seller sending the wrong color of something. I sent it back with a note and they sent me the correct color. Other than that, I have gotten exactly what I thought I was bidding on.

Has anyone else every tried eBay out there? Any stories, hints, or suggestions? Thanks for the input :O)

No one saves money when they are spending.

I'm not sure this is something I should admit to or not, but I found my wedding dress on e-bay. I accidentally bought it and two others the same day by submitting ridiculously low bids and waiting for someone else take them. They didn't. But, I really did save tons of money! Sortof.

This is Sarah (Green) Gwin. You may not remember me, but I graduated in '03, too. I recently came across Pittsley's list and have been checking other people's blogs to see what's happening. You guys look like you're enjoying life. Rock on.
