Maniac Monday

I’m not working my 9-5 today. I’ve planned a maniac listing day!

This is what I’ll look like by 4:30pm.

This has been in the back of my mind since seeing the folks over at Beeminder discuss their succesfull maniac weeks. I can’t spare a week, but I’m going to try out a single day to see how it works! And sorry, I won’t have video time-lapse like those guys do. 🙂

Maniac Monday Plan

  • Drop daughter off at daycare.
  • Drop package off at the post office (Amazon sale).
  • Go to the gym.
  • List remaining items that have already been photographed (12).
  • Grab a huge pile to sort through and list until I have to pick my daughter up from daycare.

I have a lofty goal of getting 50 items ready for listing today plus listing the 12 items. Stretch goal is to have some of those 50 items listed. This will set me up for success for the rest of March and help clear out some of my piles. It will also help me have a better month than February!

I’ll update everyone tomorrow with how much I blew the target out of the water

P.S. I also wanted to say thanks for the encouragement last week! I guess my post came off as borderline whining. And there’s no whining allowed here. Got a few smacks upside the head through either comments or e-mails. Both were seriously appreciated.

Has anyone else tried to do a maniac listing day before? Any success?

      Definitely nice to not have to worry about kids running around. My cats stayed out of the way too! Must be nice to sleep all day…

  2. good luck! I routinely have a maniac listing day….i try for at least once every other week. yesterday my manic listing day turned into manic office organizing day though 😀

      Organizing is one of those things that just eats away at the back of your mind if you don’t do it. My garage is like this. It feels good to move a huge pile like I did yesterday!

  3. No I haven’t had a Maniac Monday but since I am doing a lot of auction listings and have heard Sunday nights is the best time to have auctions end, maybe I should try a Spectacular Sunday? Do you have a store? I am opening my store on Monday of next week and am ready and raring to go for it.

      I do have a store. It just made sense with the fees I was paying. I used the eBay Fee Illustrator to check my numbers.

    2. KarrenHellier727,
      If the item allows the additional cost, running a 10 day auction starting Thursday will get your item two weekends worth of views. Just something to consider.

        That’s a great point! I’m going to be doing some auctions coming up too for some big lots of shoes and women’s pants that aren’t high end but are in great shape. I’ll keep this in mind too, even if I have to pay a little extra to run the auction.
