My blog post was written as part of my collaboration with eBay.
Do you like to collect things? I’ve had numerous collections over the years. Disney Mini Beanbags. Rusty Wallace diecast cars. Plates with cats on them. Those aren’t the only ones, but those are some of the biggies. One thing that they all had in common is that I got some of them on eBay. eBay is a great place to shop, they have just about everything! You’re probably familiar with eBay, but did you know that they now have collections? No? Let me explain.
eBay collections are a visual way to organize groups of items centered around a specific theme. I recently discovered them and they’re really neat! They’re an awesome way to organize your shopping list, or even make a wish list. You can see other people’s collections, which is a great way to get ideas.
One of the two things I am positively obsessed with lately is staying warm. The staying warm thing is basically because I’m almost always cold since I lost the weight. You could say I lost my insulation. So, since I hate being cold, when I’m home I can frequently be found wearing soft fuzzy fleece socks, soft fuzzy fleece pjs and a fleece robe. I even recently got some fleece lined leggings, but that’s another story you’ll hear soon enough. Fleece helps me feel warmer, and it feels so nice too. (I have a fleece scarf I could pet for hours.) I find myself looking everywhere for more fleece things. Sort of makes it the perfect subject of my first eBay collection, don’t you think?
It’s easy to make a collection. You just browse and shop eBay like you would any other day. When you find an item you want to add to your collection you just click add to collection, and then choose which of your collections you want it to be added to. So easy.
Without a doubt my favorite item in my #ImBornTo Find Fleece collection is this comforter.
That comment you see on the picture? That’s mine. (Another fun thing about eBay collections, you can leave little descriptions to help you remember something or to help other collectors understand why you added it to a collection. And I kid you not, if I had that comforter I probably would not get out of my bed until spring.
During the month of March, you can Curate For A Cause. For each collection you create eBay will donate $1 to March of Dimes, up to $25,000. That’s a great thing to do for a wonderful cause.
