    I just placed my order through hotwire for our park hopper passes and 10 Q&C vouchers and 2 VKL vouchers.

    I had $911.00 in my paypal acct. from all of my ebay earnings and my total was $885! So I had just enough for my order! Plus I have already paid off my hotel bill of $435 for our stay at POP with my ebay money a couple months ago.

    Now all I have left to pay for is the rest of our food and our souviner/extras! I am very proud of myself!

    I always have some stuff paid off before we go but this is the 1st trip that I will have it ALL paid off. Makes me start thinking of next years trip! ;)

    bettyann29 ......... I started in the spring and sold some lots of my daughters clothing and some other stuff. I sold from about march,april and may. I only list about 5 auctions and only every other week. That way i had time to recieve payment and ship items before starting on another set of auctions. Then I didn't sell anything in june, july or aug.! I had heard that the summers were slow.
    I started up again the last week of aug. when the kids went back to school and when I realized that I only had until mid Oct. to get stuff sold before out trip the 1st of Nov. So I was selling the last week of aug., all of sept. and had just enough from last weeks to place my order. I have some ending this week still but nothing major. I did the bulk of my sales in the spring because I think I had close to $600 when I took the summer off but then I have made about $300 since the end of Aug.

    Great job! Can you tell me what the park passes cost through Hotwire? I'm planning on signing up for the food vouchers and I just wondered if I should get passes through them also.
