Breaking the eBay addiction

What is your eBay addiction story?


Bad eBay. Bad. I've removed the hook! Finally.

This weekend I realized I needed to stop bidding on eBay! Ding, ding. Hello? Is anyone home? I was browsing around just looking for...whatever...and made minimum bids on 3 auctions for a total of 16 sweater pattern books - which I don't need and probably will make little, if any, use of!

So, I've stopped browsing, stopped looking, stopped bidding... I've even deleted (most) of my favorite searches.

There are other - better! - things I could do with that time! Like make more lap blankets! Like make some of the cute toy or slipper or sweater or vest or...patterns I have... Like take a walk outdoors!

So, the remaining auctions will end within the next 6 days - no more bidding on them. If I get 'em, I'll pay for 'em. If I don't, that'll just have to be OK. There are only so many afghan/sweater/toy/bookmarks/etc. patterns one person needs...

Anyway, these patterns arrived Saturday and today:

  • Baby Bootie Boutique (there's a pair of roller skates!)
  • Christmas Keepsakes (Red Heart)
  • Corner Bookmarks To Crochet
  • Cuddle Toys (including a cat and panda)
  • Gypsy Vest Accessory Book II, The
  • Friendly Frogs (I think I have a "thing" for green!)
  • Happy Monster (green, of course!)
  • Muffin Twins (similar to Raggedy Ann and Andy)
  • Roly-Poly Toys (including a cat and turtle!)
  • Ted & Tina Turtle (yes, a pair of green stuffed turtles!)
