about 2 weeks ago i read this on amanda's blog. having been a drinker of postum in the past, i knew what it was, but it was news to me that kraft had discountinued producing it. i was blown away at the amount of money people were paying for a jar of postum! a jar that cost about $5.25 at the local grocery store was going for anywhere from $15 to $25. that is for 1 jar, people!! C.R.A.Z.Y!
it only took me about a day to realize that i needed to try and cash in on this postum craze! so, last week i called around to all of the local grocery stores just to see if there were any bottles still on the shelves. i was pleasantly surprised to find about 20 bottles, of which i put on hold, then i went around and bought them up.
i know this sounds crazy, but i just wanted to see if i could make a little money (i mean, c'mon camera equipment is expensive!)! much to my pleasant surprise, i did! and i made more than i thought i would! in 6 days i pocketed $152 after selling 19 jars! that is my profit, after my cost, ebay fees, and shipping. not bad!!
so, i decided that it was worth it to branch out a bit and travel to buy my postum. this week i made a trip out to milwaukie and bought 24 more jars! when i got home i put 16 jars on ebay and by that afternoon i had made $190, profit!! i called mitch and told him he could come home for the day because i had already made $200 selling postum! i was giving him the day off! heck, we didn't need his money!! haha!
i only have about 18 jars left and i am a little bummed that my postum selling days are coming to an end! it's been such a part of my life the last week and a half! what am i going to do with my time??! i guess i'll just have to find somewhere to spend my $600+ that i made during my 2 week mini business adventure!
postum, i love you, my mini gold mine!
