Damn you, eBay

I've decided eBay is the same as compulsive gambling. It sucks you in until you have no money left. Or maybe that's just me. :) But in this week alone, I have bought three Cricut cartridges on eBay. It starts out as a .99 bid- and you QUICKLY get sucked into a bidding war with someone and even if it's just a mediocre cartridge, you feel entitled to it. How dare this other lose bid on MY cartridge?! So ou bid higher, and higher, and finally you win. Granted, I got ridiculous deals on all three of them (the highest I paid for one was $24. Woo hoo!). But the point is that I can't seem to stop. Now today, I see there is a Cricut tote for you guessed it, .99. I'm bidding. The bargain hunter in my cannot pass a deal up. Is there an eBay-aholic group? There should be, and if there isn't I can be the founding member. :) Oh well. I just have to figure out how to sell on eBay to support my eBay purchasing addiction!!

A hearty, "Hear, hear!" and, I've just won (I won, I won, I won, I won, I won) the drum carder of my dreams!

I defy my spouse to rain on this parade. Let it be known throughout the land that while, YES, we may be addicted to our crafts/arts/passions that does not necessarily mean that we do not know a bargain when we see it!

Sara...the secret to this bidding war is to watch the items and then bid right at the end.
