Who else wants to find a way to make extra money, from their home with flexible hours and a low start up cost that they can involve their children in?

PLUS: Besides the potential to make money, your children can learn some useful skills.
Ebay can help reinforce these skills:
 ~ Geography
~ Typing
~ Composition
~ Online banking, if you use PayPal as well as traditional banking
~ Responsibility by following through on commitments
~ Basic HTML- if you want to make your listings fancy
~ Figuring rates and shipping products
~ Using money wisely - tithing,  investing and spending


After being in pray about a way to help supplement our family income. The Lord lead me to Ebay  in 2004.  I opened an eBAY account and started by selling a couple of things that were no longer used or wanted at our house. From there I expanded by visiting local tag sales and book sales. My first great find was at the Goodwill Store in Oakridge, Tennessee. I found a children's book called "Dr. Goat" for .25 cents and listed it on Ebay and it sold for over $80.00! I had no idea the book was worth that much.
With the experience I've received, I can now share what I've learned with others and hope that they too can find Ebay as an answer to pray.
Did you know that hiding on your bookshelves, in your closets, garage and basements is an internet-buisiness?  If you need encouragement to de-clutter, try visiting  the FLYLADY .
Just a few years ago Ebay did not exist, but now many people have found a way to making money from home.  Ebay can be incredibly profitable, there is no financial risk and the hours are VERY flexible. And again, you can even involve your children!
The tools that you will need to get started are:
  • A Home Computer
  • Internet Access
  • An Ebay Account 
  • A Digital Camera or Scanner 


I ALWAYS recommend to start on eBay with selling books. Books are THE most sought after item on the internet. They are easy to list and pack. Everyone has a few books lying around the house that can make them money, also.

Whether you plan to buy or sell, you will first need to open an Ebay account. It is Free and you will not need an instructional guide. They have made it very quick and easy to get started. Use the link below for set up and to get more information on Ebay.

Sell your item on eBay!

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom,and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandising of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than find gold.She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared with her.    Proverbs 3:13-15
