My Ebay side hustle has been going pretty good. I have made a little bit of money. I will be starting my debt repayment back very soon. The majority of the profit I make from the Ebay sales will go towards that. Below are a couple things that I’ve listed and the results.
Air Jordan XII Carolina Blue
Those shoes are 10 years old. They had been sitting at my house for a minute. I decided to list them to see if they would sell. They did. I made $56 off of them! That’s pretty good in my book.
Air Jordan XIII
Those shoes had been worn a whole lot. I listed them thinking that nobody would really buy them. I was wrong. Someone paid $31 for them.
Those two auctions showed me that if you are selling certain things there are buyers even if the item is not in the best quality.
Here are my current auctions:
Vintage Soup Bowls
Happy Days Puzzle
Red Coach Bag
Ohio State University Hologram Cup
Goodwrench Service Shirt
Weapon X Comics
How have you guys been doing with your side income?

A lot of college students like to take courses over the summer. Some take classes over to get better grades so that their GPA goes up. Others take classes to get ahead. Below are 5 tips that will help you with preparing for summer classes.
Make sure you have money for classes
This is a biggie. You have to make sure you have financial aid available for the summer. Some schools allocate funds for the summer. Some don’t. You will need to check with your financial aid office and see what options you have. If you don’t have any financial aid available for the summer you may have to pay out of the pocket. For most college students that’s just not an option.
Register before the deadline
When it comes to registering for summer classes, you want to make sure you register as soon as possible. Fewer students attend summer school. That means that there will be fewer classes offered. You want to make sure that you get in the class before it is full. It’s usually harder to get your adviser to sign you in a closed class during the summer.
Don’t take too many credit hours
Summer school is typically a time for you to take a few credits and pass them. This is not the time to take 15-18 credit hours. You would stress yourself out. The summer semester usually goes very fast. You probably wouldn’t be able to handle a case load that big. Also the class times are longer as well.
Take only classes that you need
In summer school you should only take classes that you need. It makes no sense to spend money on classes that you don’t need to graduate. I have heard of people taking classes to help boost their GPA. That’s fine if you choose too, but I wouldn’t do it especially during the summer.
Take classes at another school if cheaper
If there is a class or two that you are thinking about taking, it is smart to see if they are being offered at other colleges around the area. Sometimes you may be able to take them at another school for a cheaper price. That is an option that you can take advantage of if you are strapped for cash.
Those were 5 tips to help you prepare for summer classes. What tips do you have for students going to summer school?

I can’t believe that it’s April already. 2014 is going by pretty fast. My high school and college students only have a few weeks left before the summer break begins. I know some people like to chill and relax during the summer, but most will be working a summer job. Below are 4 ways to help you find a summer job.
The first way that you can look for a summer job is to check online. There are numerous websites that will aid you in your job search. Some of them are Indeed, Career Builder, Snag A Job and Craigslist. Those are all good websites to start your summer job search with. In my opinion Indeed and Snag A Job are the best out of those four. Craigslist depends on where you live. In my city (Atlanta) Craigslist doesn’t really have any decent jobs. Also you have to beware of scams.
If you are in high school you can check with your guidance counselors. They should have information about summer jobs that are available for teens. My college students should check with their career services office. They should have a decent amount of opportunities available. Some may even be on your local campus as well.
The next way to find a job is huge. You should network with people. Talk to everybody. Talk to friends, family members, teachers, mentors, clergy and more. You never know who they know at their job or what kind of pull they may have. I know some people are shy and don’t like to talk to a lot of people, but it’s time for a change. Get out of your comfort zone and get that summer job any means necessary.
Visit Your Local Mall
This final way is pretty easy. You can visit your local mall and see if any of the stores are hiring. The odds are that a few stores will be looking for summer workers.
These are just a few ways that students can find a summer job.
