I found this men’s Under Armour camo and black sweatshirt at Goodwill for $4.23 including tax. I knew as soon as I saw this sweatshirt it was going to sell and for a good price. People love Under Armour and they love camo, put them together and it is a match made in heaven. I listed this sweatshirt in an auction for 7 days starting at $14.99 plus $6.99 shipping, I had 48 views, 5 bids, and it sold for $24.49 including shipping.
TIP: I was super lucky with this sweatshirt because the weight of it was exactly 16 ounces, so I was still able to ship it USPS First Class. You have to purchase your label on ebay to get up to 16 ounces. If you buy your postage at the Post Office you can only ship up to 13 ounces. Purchasing your labels on ebay will save you about 20% plus the tracking number is uploaded automatically. When I first started I would buy my postage at the Post Office and then manually input the tracking number, I wasted so much time and money.

I was getting ready to re-new the kids parenting fun passes. The pass cost $12.95 for the year and gives the kids a lot of buy one get one free admissions around our area, so the profit from this item will buy one of our passes.
