Just Between Friends Spring Sale

I just finished a local Just Between Friends children's consignment sale this weekend and I am pretty excited about the results!
I know the Utah one isn't nearly as big as some of the other ones I have heard of, but either way, it's a great way for me to make a good paycheck and fast.  

This time around I brought 353 items. I sold 132 items and ended up making about $530!  
Some of these items were my kids clothes but the majority were items that I purchased at yard sales for .25-.50 cents a piece. 
I think that is a pretty good flip!

Taxes - No Bueno

Have you done your business taxes yet?
I always put it off until March, too much going on in February around our house. 
It's never as bad as I make it out to be in my mind but STILL...this year the results made me MAD.
 Extra cash flow?  Yes. 
Do I love doing it?  Mostly.
Do I think I am decent at it? Yes. 
Does it enable me to stay at home? Yes.
Do I HATE the inventory in my basement?  YES!

I've read that for a small business it's a good goal to have your profit be at least 20-25% of your totals.  
Mine is at 34%, so I guess I'm not failing completely.  

Have you done your taxes?  How are you faring with your totals?  Does it make you want to work harder or just give up?

I just gave up for 24 hours. 
Now I am back at it.
Ebay, I just can't quit you.
