Happy Holidays, Resale Retail Style

It's been several weeks since my last update, and I've been very busy with my paying job. But I wanted to share my favorite Resale Retail way to help others shop for you for holidays, birthdays, weddings, or any other gift-giving occasion while saving resources including out-of-pocket cash.

  1. Create a new e-mail account for yourself at the e-mail provider of your choice (Yahoo, Google, etc.) for example "" Make sure you set a non-embarrassing, easy to remember password.
  2. Go to eBay and register as a new user with that account ( in our example).
  3. Put everything you want from eBay on the My eBay watch list under that account.
  4. Give all your friends and loved ones the e-mail and password you defined in step 1 and let them log in to check out the watch list and bit on what they want to give you!
Click here for great eBay values!

The only snag is that you can't check that e-mail account or watch list until after the event is over unless you want major spoilers to your surprise. I used this approach for Christmas last year and got a number of things from my watch list under an e-mail I created especially for that purpose. Happy green, inexpensive, eco-friendly shopping!
