It’s been over a year since I took my reselling career into full time. Believe it or not, it wasn’t up until this past summer, where I had finally found my groove and finally started oiling my rusty reselling machine. I had no problem with organization, listing or anything like that. The issue was, I was not consistent or I didn’t plan my day correctly to the point where I would run out of time.
This time, I have given myself a schedule. It’s not strict, but it has pointed me to the right direction in where I want to be by the end of the day with my goals. It’s been working really well for me. My daily ritual consists of waking up between 6-6:30, getting my son ready for school by 7:30. By the time I am home by 8:00, I start my day.
On Mondays and Wednesdays I work out, shower, eat breakfast by 8:45. I make it to my local thrift store by 9-9:15 and 12 is the latest I can stay, depending on what I have sourced. I am home before 12:30 and I eat lunch and start ripping tags, steaming, photographing and listing whatever I can. By 2-2:30 at the latest I should be done.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays I don’t go thrifting until all my items are listed. I give myself until 2:00 to finish if I am still listing, depending on how many items I have to list, it would roll over to Thursday’s pile, which is rare if I have any. Fridays are my catching up on anything I need to do, errands, lunch out, or just taking the day off. I haven’t been as stress.
I also have time to read, go on longer walks, meditate, eat healthy, and spend time with my family. Full transparency: It is not always consistent, and things happen, but because I was able to develop this habit, I no longer feel like a chicken with my head cut off. I am back in the game you guys! 😅
