Anyway, I joined e-bay addicts anonymous and started the 12 step program, I think it's been a week now since I've made a bid (yay me!) probably because I got the Visa bill on Friday and it was kind of gross.
Through it all I made some good deals and some bad.
These are the things I was excited about;
This new fossil watch was only 20 bucks!
I did find a pretty good sling, but it's slightly too long so I have to make some adjustments.
This wasn't the cutest sigg bottle I could find, but it was the only one I could buy right away. All the others would start off at a reasonable price and I would be winning it for like 5$ up until around 2 days left then everyone would start to outbid me. By the end of the auction they were going for over 25$ or more and with shipping on top of that, there was no way I could justify it.
This Halloween shirt I got for Talon is pretty cute. I found some really nice costumes but not any good deals. I ended up finding a Pablo and a Tyrone costume at Huckleberry Kids for 10$ each so I bought those and he's pretty excited about them!
This is the nursing bra I ended up getting, It's not perfect but it was nicer that the ones I have and it was a good deal. This is the one I really wanted;
See how happy she looks!
Man I was bumbed when I lost that, but I was such a rookie back then, if I had the chance now there is now way I would have lost!
This is what I bought Kirk for his birthday, the watch and one of the movies didn't get to our house in time so I was left frantically trying to find him a replacement gift on his birthday. There was no way I was going to just give him a used movie and an IOU! I have no idea what I'm going to do with it now, I'll probably save it for Christmas.
Now these are the things I was not so smart about;
After bidding on over 5 other Peter Pan movies, this is the one I ended up with. I went to play it for Talon but there was too many scratches on it! I went out and bought a CD cleaning kit and worked on it for over 30 min. It plays now except for the last half hour of the movie.. piece of junk.
These are camera batteries. I bought them after 9 hours of looking for my camera that I lost. I figured I could use my old camera until I found it, all it needed was a new battery. I bought these two for 8$ from someone in Hong Kong. After shipping it was like 15$ Not too bad right? So I told Kirk and he said that wasn't why the old camera didn't work and that I just wasted 15$. That wouldn't have been a huge deal If I didn't just waste 55$ on this;
This was suppose to be an amazing deal. A portable DVD player for 37$! (I say 55$ because that's what it ended up costing after shipping.) But how could I go wrong?
Well you go wrong when you're stupid and you don't actually read about what you are buying. When it was delivered all I got was a CD-R that said "Wholesale list" on it. I put it into the computer and it was just a list of places where you can buy electronics at wholesale prices.... I wanted to die! I went back and read (for the first time) the product description on the DVD player I thought I was buying and sure enough, that's all it was, a CD that was suppose to "make thousands of $$ profit!".
The only consolation I got was when I realized it might help save me money when I go to buy myself a new camera.
