eBay Me, Baby!

Normally, I avoid eBay like the plague. Not because I hate eBay. Oh no. No, no, no… I love it. Too much. I have never been an eBay junkie because I see the writing on the wall and I would be trying to win every auction I found any remote interest in. That is a bad, bad thing. No, no eBay for me – I would get too sucked in to a deep, deep hole.

But now I’m helping Chelsey, aka Bridezilla, get the last details together for her wedding in 5 weeks. She has pulled me in to being her eBay bitch. She does not have an eBay or a PayPal account, but she saw on The Knot, cult of all good bridezillas everywhere, that you can find great prices on eBay.

The e-mails keep coming in with requests to bid on things for her on eBay. We bought her champagne toasting flutes on eBay. We are bidding on her veil and her gift card box … and we are WINNING! Winning! How exciting! I love winning on eBay! And I don’t have to pay for any of it! This ROCKS!

Whew. Ok. I’m calm now. But I think this is the way to go for eBay. Bid for other people, so that you are spending their money – but you get all the thrill of the win!

13 minutes to go on one item, and 2 hours and 14 minutes to go on the other … and we’re still winning! Yes!

I ran into the EBay monster earlier this year. Unfortunately, it was during a slightly manic phase, and I was ridiculously hooked for about two or three weeks. My bank account still has not forgiven me.

I’m an eBay whore, I will teach you the art of sniping, meaning, don’t bid until the very last minute, and go for auctions ending late at night. You always get the best price!
