    So a few days ago i posted an ad on CL selling fresh eggs. My family and friends dont go thru eggs fast enough and we are getting an average of 9 eggs a day. So this last week i have had them start piling up so i up the add up selling them for 3 dollars but if they bring there own egg crates ill take 2 dollars off the price (sound fair?). I got my first sale today [​IMG]. She bought 3 dozen eggs and says her family goes thru eggs fast and she will be a reg customer. [​IMG] . She even knows a family that wants to start buying fresh eggs but the wife is out of town atm. My 13 ladies just made 6 bucks. [​IMG].

    Now its time to get a chicken fund jar so i can use that money for all there needs, if im going to be selling this many eggs. Im thinking of something like this but with the chillin with my peeps bumper sticker look. What do you all think?
    *edit, I made this jar thing at painted earth a few months ago and got piece of the week too.

    Quote:Oh wow. I am selling them at this price cause there are a few on CL around me that are selling for 2-3 so i figured i wont sell them for 5. I wish i was the only one or i would sell them for 5.

  5. Good job! Isn't it a good feeling?
    I have a basket for 'cash sales' and it always goes right back to the feed store (plus some).
