Scavenger Life Episode 497: Evaluating COGS

Just lately I’ve been binging on Commonwealth Picker (largely NOT clothes). I’m focusing totally on his most up-to-date movies b/c they embrace bought comps (or his precise bought value) on the gadgets he’s shopping for (and you’ll see how a lot he pays for gadgets as he picks). He buys a number of low greenback gadgets, although.  He sells on ebay and in vintage cubicles, which is an attention-grabbing mannequin.

One in all my favorites is Heather from the Paper Citadel, additionally not clothes. She’s not doing movies proper now, however in her previous movies you may see how she will get stuff actually low-cost at rummage gross sales. The very best movies are those the place it’s taken her a very long time to get the haul video posted, so she’s added in information on how a lot she bought the gadgets for. In fact it’s exhausting to know which video is a kind of and which isn’t from simply wanting on the record.

Frequent Tags is sweet for clothes. She’s up entrance about her COGS averaging out to $5/merchandise (largely GW Bins, some common GW), after which once you see her bought movies you’ll know precisely how a lot she made on every merchandise.  She does a number of haul movies which I don’t actually like an excessive amount of b/c I wish to know sale value. She talks about how in her mannequin (driving a number of hours to LA to thrift), she finally ends up choosing up and promoting a number of $15-25 gadgets, b/c the massive time/gasoline outlay per journey means she wants to choose up a sure quantity of things per journey. However she additionally has loads of $50+ gadgets – I watch with a purpose to study what these are.  I vaguely keep in mind some movies a protracted whereas in the past about her storage system/course of.

Suzanne Wells has actually systematic bought movies the place she reveals COGS, sale value, and on the finish she shares a screenshot of her spreadsheet so you may see combination numbers. However she’s just about all clothes – virtually none of her gadgets are what you or I might name attention-grabbing.

Lavender Clothesline is fairly trustworthy and up entrance, however I don’t like haul-only movies usually, and I don’t keep in mind any latest what bought movies from her.  She’s completely satisfied to carry gadgets for a very long time earlier than they promote for a very good value – I wouldn’t be stunned if she realized that from SL. Right here’s her home tour video which explains a number of her course of (in case you’re focused on that form of factor – LOL!) – the final half is a tour of her intensive storage.

I additionally watch the bought movies of The Poetry of Good, in addition to Hustle at Residence Mother who sells largely clothes, but additionally an infinite lot of automotive components she bought a couple of years again. This 12 months she’s entering into programs and training which turns me off a bit, however usually she’s very trustworthy and open. By way of character, I like her the perfect.

Right here’s a 2020 numbers video from HHM, the place she’s very open not nearly ebay revenue, but additionally youtube and affiliate revenue, in addition to prices, and so forth.

Right here’s a course of video from her that I haven’t watched myself
