What’s going on everyone? I have one more post in the Europe series, but it will be live in July. It’s the end of the month so it’s time for the June 2019 life update. June has been a busy month. There’s been something going on nearly every weekend. Even though it’s been nonstop, I’ve been able to still do well with my business.
May was the best month that I’ve ever had in eBay sales. June is going well too. As of this writing, I only have to make another $200 and I’ll reach a new best sales month. I believe that I can do it. As always, I’ll keep you posted. Make sure you follow me on Instagram at My Money Chronicles for real-time updates about my sales and my thrifting adventures.
I recorded a webinar that features 5 items that anyone can sell on eBay. Did I mention that it’s free?

Here’s the part of the post where I share five items that I’ve sold this month.
I paid $6.15 for this Mike Vick jersey. It sold for $39.99
This Young Money jersey costs $2.90. It sold for $18.
I got this FitBit for free at my job. I sold it for $50 on Instagram.
I paid $1.57 for this Pillars of the Earth Board Game. I sold it for $60.
I paid $6.30 for this Yankees jersey. It sold on eBay for $29.99
Besides eBay, I’ve been working on a couple of different things this month.
Has anyone ever heard of Quora? It’s a question and answer website. Users ask questions and other users answer them. In the past, I’ve answered a few questions here and there. Late last year, I was invited to participate in the Quora’s partner program. It’s an opportunity for certain users to write questions and make a little money when they do it. For a while, I was asking 4-5 questions a month just to see if this side hustle is worth it. To be honest, most of the questions didn’t make any money. I had 2 or 3 make between $0.20 – $0.30. Eventually, I did have a question to make $4. I felt like I had won the lottery (just kidding).
So, I decided to try something else. I wanted to see if I’d make money if I posted at least 10 questions for 7 days in a row. I did this exercise last week and I didn’t even crack $10 total for the week. I’m not sure how they figure out what to pay you for your questions, but apparently, mine were nowhere good enough. I doubt That I will add that many questions on Quora in the future. It’s not worth it.
This month I also wanted to see how my traffic would be affected if I wrote and published fewer articles for the month. Including this article, I only published five posts in June. During most months, that number is usually 9 or 10. My traffic has suffered a bit, but not as much as I thought it would. I’m going back to two articles per week again come July. The goal is to always get more readers. More content will make that happen.
Finally, my t-shirts have been doing very well this month. I’ve had sells on Teespring, Merch by Amazon and Redbubble. I feel like this is a sign of things to come. I’m currently three shirt sales away from the next tier for Merch. That means that I’ll be able to list more designs. Right now, I can only list 10 designs at a time. The next tier will allow me to list much more than that. I’m excited because I have quite a few designs that I want to get out to the public.
