sometimes I wonder why I sell anything...and then I think again and it hits me- if I don't get rid of some stuff, my wife isn't gonna let me buy more, so I just have to sell some stuff...
but you're absolutely right, selling is a losing money thing. Take the little air hog I sold last month...sold for 45 bucks shipped. The plane orignally cost $35. I ended up putting in a total of $40 worth of gear in it...shipping was $12, popcorn was probably .50 cents, $1 for the box, $2 for gas, and 2 hr worth of my time to box it up and drive to/from and wait at PO. Now I'm thinking "why do I sell again"...oh yea...my wife.
