I love Ebay.
Especially in a recession, I love Ebay.
Thanks to Ebay I have many things I could never have afforded. I bought a Nikon D200 on Ebay for $400… brand new. I bought my Nikon SB-800 on Ebay for $120. I bought 3 Harmony 890 remotes on Ebay for $40 each.
As I’ve been doing more and more photography, I realized that I needed a tablet for retouching. Using a standard mouse to retouch is like doing surgery with boxing gloves on. I did my research and decided what I needed was a Wacom Intous4 8×12 tablet. I went to Dell.com, where I always do my comparison shopping and it was $499.
Ouch. That’s a lot of money.
So I went to Ebay and bid on one… new in box.
Won it. $80. Free shipping.
Go shop on Ebay.
Afford stuff you can’t afford.
