Cut up credit cards, take cash out for inventory purchases, budget and keep track of every penny coming in and going out. I have a $100 inventory budget per month, $300 shipping budget and $100 supply budget. Once it’s gone it’s gone.
To Amazon- I have.a hoarded house so I really don’t NEED to scource lol so that’s why my shipping budget is a good chunk. smile emoticon I scource mostly at thrift stores and garage sale, some ra/oa when I need to look at something fresh for a change.
If you want to grow, you have to reinvest. I try to get as close to $0 left in cash as I can between payouts. When you see your payouts grow from $1,000 to $5,000 to $7,000 to $12,000 to $14,000 then you know you’re on the right track. You just have to decide when it’s time to stop growing, level off, and pay yourself.
