I found this super cool Ralph Lauren RLX golf shirt at Goodwill for $4.23 including tax.  I decided to list this shirt in an auction for 7 days, I started it on a Tuesday and it ended the following Tuesday at 11pm.  My starting price was $9.99 plus $3.99 shipping, I had 50 page views that week for this item, 4 people bid on it, and it sold for a total of $16.49 including shipping.

TIP:  I did not know at the time when I bought this shirt how much people liked the RLX brand.  If you find anything RLX for the right price buy it, the brand sells great on ebay.

$4.23 item cost including tax

$1.65 ebay fee (10% of the total sale)

$.50 paypal fee (3% of the total sale)

Total cost of my item including all selling fees was $9.06, my item sold for $16.49 including shipping, my profit was $7.43.  This was the second item I purchased from Goodwill and I came close to doubling my money, so much fun.  $7.43 is one third of the way to getting a pedicure, one or two more sold items and I could take an hour for myself, yeah!
