I kinda go in spurts also. I buy and sell a lot of my daughter's clothes on there. It's a wonderful place to get children's clothes because kids often outgrow stuff before they wear it out. So about every 6 months or so.....I'll get together a bunch of Nikki's things that she has outgrown and sell them on there. Then I turn around and spend that money on clothes for her in bigger sizes.
She's really into the namebrands....Limited Too, GAP, Abercrombie, etc...and if I bought all that stuff in the stores....I'd go broke. On Ebay, I can get a practically new pair of Limited Too jeans for about $8.00 as opposed to $40 in the store.
It's funny though......Nikki just about got addicted to Ebay because she loves looking for clothes on there. I had to make sure that I always signed out of Ebay because I was afraid she'd begin buying a bunch of stuff under my name!
She's only 11.....but that kid is VERY smart and computer savvy! (well you all have seen her on here) LOL
