My Auction Number!
Since the first auction was so successful, I decided to give it another shot. This time, being a Saturday morning auction, there were many more people, but surprisingly, the items didn’t sell for too much more – I was pleasantly surprised. I also went to this auction solo, with a budget, and strict buying terms. Sad face.
Item #1 – I was pretty stoked about this auction. I even called Noel immediately after this purchase.
Brand is Durex and Trojan. There are 54 packs of 12 condoms, and 81 packs of 3 condoms for a total of 891 condoms. Unsure of the liquidation reason, but the expiration date is in 2019, and they are all sealed. Twelve packs are selling for $9.97 and three packs are selling for $4.97 each.
Price I paid: $62.92
Total saved: $878.03
Percent Discount: 93%
Item #2 – Similar to the first auction, once again, they were liquidating pads and tampons. This time I grabbed 3 more lots – one of tampons, and two of pads.
Always Pads and Playtex tampons.
Brand is Always and Playtex. There are 88 pads in the box, a 44 pack, a 38 pack and a 76 pack, plus a box of 96 tampons. Liquidated due to customer return, reason unknown. The 88 pack is valued at $21.34, 44 pack is $7.57, 76 pack is $15, and the 38 pack is 7.57. The box of Playtex tampons is valued at $18.
Price I paid: $14.30
Total saved: $45.87
Percent Discount: 79%
Item #3 – Dog Dish – This was purely need, not to turn a profit. Item was missing one stainless steel bowl, with a silicone mat.
Brand is Messy Mutts. This item is available on Amazon, and it valued at $49.99
Price I paid: $13.31
Total saved: $36.68
Percent Discount: 73%
Item #4 – Digital Water timer – Again, another necessity. We just got hit for a $475 water bill because I turn on the sprinklers and forget to turn them off – no need to worry now!
Digital Water Timer with LED display
Brand is Melnor. Valued at $99.99 on Amazon.ca, this was a pretty awesome deal for me. Did come sealed in a cardboard box, but no instructions 🙁
Price I paid: $13.31
Total saved: $86.68
Percent Discount: 87%
Halfway point! Here is a quick summary of what we bought during the first half of the auction:
