Okay, so here is my blog thesis statement.
I want this blog to be somewhere that other people can learn from my mistakes.
I want this blog to be somewhere that other people can ask questions, and get answers.

I want this blog to be somewhere for someone like me who wants to try something new, but also wants to know what to expect.

We will begin with my Ebay account.
I have had an account for a very long time on Ebay, it wasn't until recently that I got seriously involved in selling rather then just buying, this was done mostly in a great attempt to turn around money flow.

I got married in May and learned shortly after that we both have a very laissez-faire attitude about money and most things in life in general. This is great to try to avoid stree, but bad when two people have access to the same account and both are very relaxed about spending money, keeping track of money etc. This is the path that led me to where I am today.

In anycase Ebay is probably the best and easiest way to make extra cash. For me and my husband it IS the easiest way. After combining both of our assets we have SO much stuff just lying around the house. Stuff that hasn't been unpacked since we moved in.

Listing this stuff on ebay is pretty quick and painless, especially painless now that I can print the postage right from paypal. That took away the biggest pain of all. I average at least a couple hundred dollars a month extra income by buying and reselling clothing or vintage items, or selling items that we no longer need or want!

This is step one for someone looking to make extra money. Use Ebay, it can be a pain, but it is a pain with tons of opportunity.
