It has been the start to a busy new season for me.
These past couple of weeks I started Birthday and Christmas shopping, on top of my weekly sourcing. And yes! I’m getting mentally prepared for Black Friday. Well, Thursday, actually.
Four out of five of my kids birthdays are coming up. And my husbands birthday is the month of October too. Not to mention my own birthday. Which I don’t actually celebrate anymore. I mean, 29 forever, right?! 😉
The weekends are already booked with parties and Fall Festivals.
I did manage to spend the weekend with a couple friends who I have not hung out with in a while.
I have no internet service up where they live, so I was able to not work at all.
I am on my phone a lot… either listing, looking for inventory, researching or editing pictures. So it was a much needed break, to just relax and catch up.
When I came back home I was right back to my normal routine of taking care of my family and well, routine. People ask me if doing the same thing week after week ever gets boring.. and the truth is, it doesn’t. I’m very maternal, so I love taking care of my kids and spending time with them. We start talking and three hours easily passes by. I have one daughter in College. She’s coming home for Fall break this weekend. So I’m really looking forward to that.
I do my best to utilize time when it presents itself. But I’m definetly not perfect with time management. I bought a pretty vintage daily planner, but I just can’t bring myself to use it. I like to have the option of changing plans at the last minute. As much as I want to go back in time and plan every aspect of my life… I just can’t go there.
Getting back to boring….
What I would find boring is having a regular job and dealing with the same people all of the time. Even though I am a people person, I like talking to different people all the time. Whether through the Internet, or just out sourcing.
That said, I’m very particular to who I share my time with nowadays. And it has made me a much happier, stable person. Either you are an investment to my life, and we lift one another up some how, or you don’t. Life is too short to not live life to its fullest.
Regardless of your circumstances…Is what I mean. I love life!
What’s new with Inventory…
Six out of the ten pairs of shoes I bought this past week have already sold. I also picked up some scrubs that have been selling. I’m currently contemplating on whether to get into toys. I just gave away about $500 worth of zu-zu pets, with their accessories… Along with all my kids old Polly pockets and barbies.
To be honest, I have looked at toys for so many years, I’m just over it. Gosh! That sounds harsh. New life chapters began though. And that has been my focus.
I have a few things to list today after school.
Some Luluroe leggings, a couple of purses, and some statement sleeve tops.
I’m pretty set for this month. I do like to keep a dozen shoes in all sizes available though. Shoes sell very well. In fact, I just made an extensive list of shoe brands to share here.
And if your business is thrifting….
It’s hard work, but keep it up!
You WILL reach your goals. 😉
Extensive shoe list:
Top ((((Flats)))) that sell for over $50 per pair.
