What would you buy for 30 $ on Ebay?

Every month I leave 30$ in my paypal account, to spend on Ebay. My Ebay allowance, so to speach. :) This month I think I'll either spend the money on cookie cutters or some charm bracelets. What would you buy, if you had 30 dollars and had to spend them on Ebay? You can buy several cheap items, or one more expensive one.

I would buy some nice MAC makeup, or maybe some hair products like CHI hair straightening.. or CHI biosilk. I hate spending my money on these things, I wouldn't mind spending my mylot cash on them though!

Yes, that is the good thing about earning money online. It goes into your Paypal-account, and doesn't really feel like "real" money. it seems so far away from the normal checking account where you pay the bills, that it is easy to spend them on fun things.

Exactly that's what I love about Mylot. It doesn't have the same feeling as actual cash in my hands. It just feels like I can get small free gifts online on ebay. Instead of buying these things at the store with my own money, I can just use my "paypal money."

If I had $30 for spending in Ebuy... Actually, I would save them and when I accumulate x5-10 times more, I would buy something worthy. But if I had to bay something for this amount of money it would be a new luminous keyboard for my PC. At night, it would be great to see the keys on the keyboard without switching on the lamp.

The reason that I only spend 30$ is that the is the limit for tax free import to my country. If I buy something more expensive, it will cost me an 25-50% extra in import tax and VAT.

Yes, I understand you. It's the same and for me if I order something from the USA, for example, but for the countries in the Europen Union, there are not fees.

Well if it were me, I'd rather buy the more expensive one. Waiting several cheap items really doesn't worth my time. I am done buying cheap stuffs because they always turn out to be junks. Well, I guess I get what I pay for . 30 bucks, well, I am sure you can find good things there with that amount. I will buy a handbag or a pair of shoes. Do you sell on ebay too?

You can never get to many bags or shoes, that's a good choice! :) No, I haven't tried selling on ebay, I understand the fees are quite steep. I have sold some things on our local alternative to Craigslist, just some babythings we didn't use anymore. It is nice to get some money for the things you don't need anymore,instead of throwing them away. Also, it's better for the environment. But mostly, I just give those things to the Salvation Army, or the refugees. Do you sell on ebay?

It is fun to collect stamps. My husband has a good collection of old Norwegian stamps he made when he was a kid. It is even worth a bit of money now.

Right now, I'd buy a grey cardigan. I am looking for one, for fall! But so far I haven't found the perfect one, not on Ebay and not anywhere else.

Yes, I understand grey is one of the major colors this fall. It is difficult to find the perfect item when you have a picture of it in your head. What kind of cardigan are you looking for? Thin cotton, or thick and fluffy wool? I try not to buy any more clothes now, the closets are all full. But a new cardigan could have been nice. :)

im glad you asked. the best way to spend 30 dollars on ebay is to buy a skateboarding deck! just the actual board i mean. you can get a blanc ATX or another generic brand for aboout 15 dollars plus 7 dollars for grip tape.. you'll clear it easy with 30 dollars. these decks have good concave in them as well i would know i purchased a bunch of them. usually blanc decks sell for around 50 dollars plus tax, plus griptape so about 65 dollars. you cant go wrong!
