Keeping track of things in a spreadsheet may seem like a chore, but storing data can be really useful for your future self.

I started keeping track of my eBay inventory back in April of 2018 and now I’ve got over a year’s worth of sales information I can look through to glean knowledge from.

If you’re selling on ebay, or have any kind of side business for that matter, you need to keep track of your numbers. If for nothing else, you need to know them for tax purposes.

I’m constantly seeing people ask what to sell on eBay, so I thought it would be fun and maybe informative to share my top selling items on eBay over the past year.

I decided to go through my spreadsheet and pull all of the sales where I made at least $50 profit.

When I say profit, I mean what I actually made after subtracting the price I paid for the item, eBay and Paypal fees, and shipping costs.

I’m glad I started this blog because I wouldn’t have thought to see what my best selling items were if I wasn’t going to make a post of it.

When I went back over my sales, I found that I had sold 23 items at a profit of at least $50 and those 23 items have brought a total profit of $2,413.66.

That’s a pretty significant profit from a small number of items! I’ve had 459 transactions and profited $7,845.12 over the past 12 months to put that into perspective.

If you’re wondering how I calculate net profit, check out Easy Auctions Tracker.

You’re probably eager to see the items, so without further ado, here are the 23 items I’ve sold for a profit of $50 or more.
