Slack Economy Fuels eBay Shopping

Withrepparttar current economic outlook appearing fairly bleak for many individuals and businesses, most feelrepparttar 116318 need to make every dollar count.

But, no matter how badrepparttar 116319 economy does or doesn't get for every one of us, one fact remains a constant of human nature: People love a bargain!

This fact came home quite clearly to me last week when I used eBay to turn an expensive business purchase into an almost guilty buying pleasure.

I needed to purchase a very specialized piece of equipment for my home office called a "Mimio Board." It converts a standard "white board" you draw on with erasable markers into a digital board you use with your PC. In short, everything you draw onrepparttar 116320 board shows up inrepparttar 116321 computer.

I really wanted this equipment, much like a 5-year old child really wants a new bike! Unfortunately, a new "Mimio Board" cost $400 minimum. But, unlikerepparttar 116322 5-year old who stamps his foot and screams "no fair", I did something about it. I went to eBay!

I did a quick search for "mimio" in hope of finding a used model at a reduced price. Much to my surprise I didn't find a used one, but I did find a brand new one still inrepparttar 116323 box and available at over 75% off!

It seemed such a great deal that I actually felt a bit skeptical and thought I smelled a "scam." But, likerepparttar 116324 5- year old, I really wanted that bike, I mean "mimio board!"

So I enlistedrepparttar 116325 aid of a professional "eBay Power Buyer" with many years' experience (my wife) to help me evaluaterepparttar 116326 deal and whether or not to go for it.
