So for the next few days I`m sure every Grocery store and gas station on the Coast will be busy
Be sure to stock up on plenty of Batteries for the radios and flashlights in case of power outages ( unless of course you are lucky enough to have a Generator ) which I DO NOT :<(
ICE for the coolers to store frozen foods in if power is out and refrigerator isn`t running
What I do is start ahead of time and make trays and trays of ice cubes and put them in bowls in the freezer.
And if I`m fortunate enough to KEEP my power I can always use the ice cubes for something else
Make sure you have plenty of canned foods and a Hand Held Can opener
Bagged snacks are not always nutritional BUT are at least sustenance if no other non cookable food is accessible
Blankets are a must if the house is chilly and the furnace isn`t working
Buckets of water for toilet flushing unless you have a Porta Potty to use
Also the buckets of water can be used to heat some for cooking if you have a Gas stove or worse case scenario heat it on a Propane Grill if you have one ( I had to do this in 1986 when Hurricane Gloria left me without power for 9 days ! )
And if you have Furry Pets PLEASE don`t let them go outside without being on a leash especially at night when they could wander off and get hurt or lost
Batten down the Hatches East Coasters !
Stay Safe and we`ll get through this we always do :>)

We also know if you sell anywhere or anything you need to use Social Media but how and where to you start?
One way to start is using blogs and that is why a special friend of mine started this blog and she sells at the Depression Glass Warehouse.
Beth is one smart woman and know how important social media is an has encouraged all of us to post and use the blog to help each other with sales.
I have learned a lot from my friend and sell at The Book Corner Cafe on eBay and I also have my own site Book Corner Cafe. Stop by and check out our site for more information.
I am hoping the rest of our group here will pop in and introduce themselves to you and their selling sites. We all encourage and support each other in both our personal and professional lives. We truly are an online family.

I have had a love/hate affair with eBay over this past year. I became convinced I could sell there full-time. I admitted that it wasn't going as planned. I stopped listing completely on their website for about a week and a half...and now....well, now...I have returned, but I'm going at it part-time.
Instead, I am focusing most of my energy on writing. For those that don't know me, I do freelance writing and also some virtual assistant work. Recently, I acquired a few more clients, so at the moment I am figuring out how to make all the pieces work. I'm hoping to add a few more clients, but I have to get my routine figured out and need to get a website done...and...well...there is just a lot more to working as a writer than simply putting words on a computer screen and sending the work to your clients.
Meanwhile, I'm still plugging along with eBay. I can't quite make the break with them when I have so much stuff in this house that I need to get rid of, but I don't need to give them my full attention right now either. I guess at the moment --- I am not burying eBay, but I'm not really praising them either. And how's that for pulling the post and the title together?
When Sushiboofay is not driving herself crazy writing for her clients or listing on eBay - she also works on her own little blog called The Freelance Misfit. It's not a real active blog right now, but she hopes to change that soon. She could also really use some Followers there! :-)

You see I think I have a slight learning disability because I have trouble comprehending what I read sometimes, so trying to learn something new by reading directions can usually cause me a splitting headache and even at times a " I quit" ATTITUDE
Well tonight was just the opposite :>)
I have been trying to learn about FBA ever since Bob Willey and Michele Fireangel Jones talked to me about it at EOL in Philadelphia which we all attended back in Sept.
I started sourcing for products right there in Philly and found several profitable items with the help of a couple more friends attending Beth Cherkowsky Danni Ackerman Kat Simpson and Carmie Docton
When EOL was over, I came back home and armed with my smartphone with the Amazon.com app I have shopped several times since then to acquire a "beginning inventory"
Then I dreaded the next step though. I had to "read" and "learn" what to do with my purchases
Well earlier this evening surrounded by boxes and labels and scissors and tape I started !
2 hours later and alot of "ughs" I now have 2 large boxes ready to be shipped off tomorrow morning !
I sure hope it gets easier with each shipment :>)
But the best part of it all, I didn`t QUIT till it was done .
And the whole time my husband just smiled at me and said " You can do this Honey "
Hehhee :>) He thinks I can do ANYTHING once I set my mind to it
I guess maybe I can :>)

We all have so many things going on in our lives every day and feel there are never enough hours in a day right?
I have always been a morning person and love mornings and the quiet. That has helped me plan my day along with a to do list.
Since each of us is different have you ever taken time to think how your morning shapes the rest of your day?

We had always talked about "someday" going Whitewater Rafting .
Well someday finally happened :>)
We drove 6.5 hrs. to get there, but it was well worth it
Jackman is a VERY small town about 1 hr.North of Skowhegan It`s filled with small country stores and surrounded by Mountains and LOTS of small town hospitality
We had made reservations at the Mountain View Resort which is a BEAUTIFUL Lodge http://www.innseason.com/isr/RD_R_Mountainview.aspx part of the inn season resort properties
We had a Gorgeous View of the mountains just behind the lodge and inside the Lodge was just as pretty
After a Peaceful nights sleep, bright and early Sunday morning we met up with the Bus from the Windfall Rafting Company http://windfallrafting.com/ which took us to the Kennebec River Dam where our rafting trip started.
After a smooth raft ride down the river for a bit, we started hitting the rapids ! Class 2 , 3, and then the mighty 4 http://windfallrafting.com/
Are you registered for eBay on Location in Philadelphia next week?

Hurry up 'cause, Sept 5th is the Opening Ceremony and Sept 6th is when all the "games" happen, aka seminars, training, sprinting from one room to the next, the handshaking marathon and the "cramming stuff is overtaxed brains" test.

SO put your packing peanuts in one of those ubiqituous plastic shopping bags, tie it shut and put THAT on the bottom of the box... FILL it (the bag I mean) over full so they can't move in there...they are Packing peanuts, they don't need room to breath... Tie it shut.
NOW put your item right on top of the bag. put cardboard pieces cut to size all around it...all sides..put loose fill in between the cardboard and the box wall... put another "bag" of peanuts on top of the item. fill the box to the top or over with loose fill ... bump it up and down gently to settle the fill and add more to get it back up to the top... NOW seal it.
No double boxing required cause you just created an "internal double wall" less bubblewrap wasted, no "meandering packing peanuts" and less broken stuff. (we've had 2-3 items broken in the last 5.5 years..)

So have you check your NEW seller dashboard yet?
The best part is that center won where it says CREATE A REPORT so now I can see which exact listings eBay says I didn't ship and upload tracking on in a timely basis. Go check out yours. (and if you figure out how to get the report? let me know. I created one and it said it would be ready soon? that was last night and so far no word on it.)
