I created this resource page to include services, products, and companies that I’ve used or can vouch for. I wanted to have everything in one place so that they can be easily accessible to you. The first set of items are
Accutek ShipPro Shipping Scale
If you sell a lot of clothes or small items, you should consider using poly mailers. They are durable bags that will help you to keep your shipping down.
You’ll also need some boxes depending on what type of items you sell. You can get some boxes from USPS for free. They may not have the side that you need. You can check with places like Office Depot or Walmart to see if they have different sizes.
If you ship any fragile items, you want to make sure that they make them to their destination in one piece. Bubble wrapping the items will help to make sure that happens.
The more items that you sell, the more tape that you will use. You want to make sure that you have enough stocked up.
One of the best things that I did for my business was to purchase a printer. There are hundreds of different ones out there. I have one similar to the one that you see above.
eBay For Starters
If you are just now starting out in your eBay journey, you should check out this webinar. I go over the steps that beginners should take when they are learning how to sell on eBay.
Bluehost is one of the best hosting companies that you can go with if you are looking to start a WordPress blog for a good price. My site has been hosted on Bluehost since 2013. You can get your hosting for as little as $3.95 per month (this low price is only available through my unique link). You also get a free domain when you purchase a plan of 12 months or longer. I wrote a step by step guide that will help you get started. You can find it here.
GoDaddy is one of the best places to locate and purchase a domain name. They are advertised as the world’s largest domain name website. I purchased a domain for another website that I had a couple of years ago for under $5. That’s a heck of a price. Head over here to see what domain deals are eligible.
Tailwind is a tool that I use to help schedule my pins on Pinterest. Pinterest has been a game-changer. It is currently the platform that drives the most traffic to my website. Grab your free trial to Tailwind when you click my link.
Grammarly is a program that you can download to your computer that helps with grammar. I’ve been using Grammarly for two years, and I love it. It helps you with spelling, punctuation placement, and other grammar issues. As a blogger or writer, this tool is a must-have.
Save You Money
If I can’t find a hotel deal when I’m traveling, I use Airbnb. I’ve used it in places like Miami and Havana, Cuba. Both places that I stayed in were nice. Use this coupon the first time you book a stay with Airbnb, and you can save $40.
Depending on where you’re going, you may see that Uber has surge charges or they may be a little higher than you want to pay. You can use Lyft. Here is a code that will get you $5 off your first ride.

The Total Money Makeover
If you are trying to get out of debt, you should read The Total Money Makeover. Dave Ramsey shares seven principles in this book called baby steps. Anyone can do them if they are focused and disciplined. I’m currently at baby step number 2. I can’t wait until I’m finished with number 7!

If you’re looking for a side hustle, I’d recommend the course which is titled Starting Your Amazon Side Hustle. You can find out more information about it here.
